Prep Time40 mins
Total Time1 hr 10 mins
Servings: 28 eggs

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter unsalted, softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour *(see recipes notes below)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup M&M’S® Milk Chocolate (or M&M’S® White Chocolate, if you prefer)
  • 24 ounces vanilla candy melts your favorite colors
  • seasonal sprinkles (optional)

Instructions

  • Beat butter and brown sugar together with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add milk and vanilla and beat until combined. Add flour and salt and mix until combined. Add mini chocolate chips and M&M’S® Milk Chocolate. Using a spatula or spoon, gently mix into cookie batter.
  • Scoop about a tablespoon of dough and form into an egg shape. Place on a platter or baking sheet. Repeat with rest of the dough. Place eggs in the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes.
  • If you are using multiple colors of candy melts, decide how many eggs you want for each color. I used four colors (6 ounces of each color) so I had 7 eggs of each color. Melt the first color of candy melts in the microwave. Dip your designated eggs into the first color. Using a fork, remove from candy coating and shake off extra coating. This is important so that the coating doesn't pool too much and disfigure your egg. Place on platter and quickly sprinkle with sprinkles before the coating dries. Skip this step if you rather stripe your eggs with leftover coating. Repeat with other eggs. Then, move on to your next color. Repeat until you've coated all your eggs. Let eggs dry for about 10-15 minutes to let coating set.
  • If you decided to stripe your eggs instead of sprinkle them, fill ziplock bags with leftover coating. Snip off a small corner off of the ziplock bag. Drizzle coating quickly over the eggs. Let them set for about 10 minutes to let stripping set.
  • You can serve at room temperature. But if you prefer a firmer filling, you can refrigerate instead. Enjoy!

Notes

*With the recent flour recalls due to food-borne illnesses, it may be unsafe to consume uncooked flour. Therefore, I strongly recommend spreading the flour on a baking sheet and baking at 350 for 5 minutes to kill any present bacteria.
