Monster Easter Cookies by Picky Palate

Boy, I’m having a hard time resisting the darn Easter chocolates! Target has the best Easter candy, along with so many other items I find hard to resist.

So excited for you to try my Monster Easter Cookies. These will be so great for after Easter when you ransack the kids baskets or grab the Easter Candy at 1/2 off!

Completely sinful but so fun! Everything in moderation right? That’s my motto ๐Ÿ™‚


Here’s the candy I used for my cookies. Keep in mind, you can use about any of your favorites! Sky’s the limit!

Monster Easter Cookies


  • 2 sticks/1 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose Gold Medal Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs
  • 2 Twix Eggs
  • 2 Snicker’s Eggs
  • 2 Snicker’s Peanut Butter Eggs
  • 2 Milky Way Bunnies
  • 3 Cadbury Eggs
  • 3 Chocolate Cadbury Eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
  2. Cream butter and sugars in stand mixer, until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla beating to combine. Slowly add dry ingredients and chopped Easter Chocolates. Beat gently until just combined.
  3. With a cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet placing about 1 inch apart. Press each cookie down about 1/2 inch before baking. Bake for 10-13 minutes until golden brown. With a plastic knife, re-form cookies into a nice round shape, cleaning up any melted chocolates that may have oozed out the sides. Let cookies cool for 10 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to cooling rack.

Makes 3 dozen cookies

    Easter candy? I’m not sure I would have any candy left to put in the cookies by the time they were ready to bake…ESPECIALLY if I was using the REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER Easter candies. Why are the egg shaped REESE’S so much better than the regular? Hmmm. It remains a mystery to me. Great recipe!

    Those cookies look great! I’m an Easter candy junkie too, but I’m allergic to chocolate. Luckily there are lots of jelly beans and the like. The Reese’s Pieces Eggs are the best.

    Lisa says:

    mmm. Mixing the chocolate bars into the cookie mix is genius. My little one would love these:)

  17. 17

    these look fantastic, Jenny! I saw your Vine while you were making these – haha that Snickers bar was trying to get away from ya! i love all the candies in the cookies!

  18. 18

    My only problem with these cookies is that about half of that candy wouldn’t make it to the cookies…because someone would eat them.

    Like me. maybe. ooops.

  19. 19

    Oh my! I’m SO in candy heaven right now! I always have to buy extra so there’s enough for the actual recipe! (=

    For some reason my local Target store didn’t have the Milky Way bunnies (bummer!), so I got some Kit Kat bunny ears instead. I also picked up some of the Easter M&Ms to add a bit of colour. =) Looking forward to making these! <3

    Also, would you recommend omitting the salt if the only kind of butter you have is salted?

    I made these last week and they came out really, really flat! They had an excellent taste though. I looked back at your chocolate chip cookie recipe (that I use ALL THE TIME) and noticed you didn’t use as much flour in this recipe as in your other cookie recipe. I have a feeling that might have been the problem. Will try again with your other recipe and the candy and see what happens.
