  • A beautiful and delicious Cadbury Cookie Cake recipe for an easy Easter dessert that looks as good as it tastes!

    When you hear Cadbury, most think of their Cadbury Cream eggs, which have never been my favorite. In fact, as a kid, I thought it was a cruel joke! If I’m going to be surprised with something in the center, it should be creamy peanut butter!

    However, I love the Cadbury Mini Eggs Easter Candy. They’re cute, colorful egg shaped milk chocolate candies with a crisp and crunchy candy shell. Somewhat like an M&M. Last year I used them to make these adorable no bake edible Egg Nests which are so ridiculously good, I can’t be trusted to have them in the house!

    This Cadbury Cookie Cake recipe tastes like a mix between a sugar cookie and chocolate chip cookie cake. It’s easy, sweet and the perfect Easter dessert for both adults and children.

    I took this cake to a get together last Friday night and after just 5 minutes, there wasn’t a slice left and kids were returning for seconds!

    Cookie cakes are not only effortless, but easy and beautiful to present. You can make it on a sheet pan or pizza pan, but I prefer to use a pie or tart dish {affiliate link} for presentation.

    You can integrate the Cadbury candies into the cake, like you would M&M’s, or use them to garnish on top. Since I was going for a mix of pretty and delicious, I opted to hand select my Cadbury colors and garnish.

    How to prevent candy from cracking in the oven:

    It’s nearly impossible, as when the chocolate melts, it will tend to crack a touch. To minimize cracking, bake the Cadbury Cookie Cake 9 minutes, remove from oven and gently press candies into the top. Return for 7 minutes for an under baked cake {always my preference} or up to 10 minutes.
