Chocolate Egg Cookies

I first saw these beautiful cookies on The Bake Feed editor, Brian’s page while we were in NYC!! Upon our arrival, I needed to bake something quick!! I really missed being in my kitchen SO much 😀

These were easy enough and I had all the ingredients (except the chocolate eggs). The original recipe calls for the cadbury milk chocolate eggs.. yum! But the store I went to only had one bag left, so I also grabbed a bag of the Hershey Milk chocolate eggs too! I really loved the color of the hershey eggs 😀

 

I will do an update on our NYC trip soon! I will say it was AMAZING and we had so many great treats 😛
