What I like the most about these Easter treats is that it actually looks like you have stuck an egg into a cookie! The boys thought this was so funny!

Everyone I know loves creme eggs, they are synonymous with Easter and are always added to recipes around this time of year, but these were so easy to make and went down a treat with everyone in the house – so I had to add them to the blog and share the recipe!

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose/plain flour
  • 1 cup white, milk or dark chocolate chips (or a mix of all 3!)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 5 creme eggs

Put your creme eggs in the fridge because that makes them easier to cut when the time comes.


Set your oven at 375/GM5.

Line an 8 x 8 tin with greaseproof baking paper to make your cookie bars easier to get out once they are cooked. Set the tin aside.

Mix your butter and sugar together until it is smooth and paler, add 1-2 tablespoons of the flour and your egg (this stops the mixture from splitting). Add the rest of the flour and vanilla essence. Finally add your chocolate chips.

Place the mixture into the tray and push down into the corners. Bake for 30mins, meanwhile take your creme eggs out of the fridge and cut them in half, take the cookie bars out of the oven and while the cookie mix is still hot push half an egg into the mixture at inch apart intervals. Return to the oven for another 10 minutes.

Once removed from the oven, allow to cool in the pan for a few minutes, lift out of the pan and cut into single egg squares.

Devour with a cup of tea or coffee!

    I really don’t think this should be recommended for children.

    • Harriet February 23, 2015 / 10:53 am

      I don’t think it’s recommended for children per se, more as a treat for anyone – children included. There has to be a limit at which point we deny our children anything that has a high sugar content, I’m not suggesting you offer them a tray full, but half of one as an easter treat is, in my opinion, harmless.

      I also let my children have Easter eggs, bunnies and other sugary things over Easter. They enjoy them just as much as I do, then they burn off any additional calories on their trampoline and running about ‘hunting’ for more Easter treasures and treats. Thanks for the feedback x
