Creme Egg Chocolate Cookie Bars

We’ve had Valentine’s Day, Pancake Day and Lent is in progress, so it must be nearly Creme Egg time! Take a look at my Cadbury Creme Egg Chocolate Cookie Bars, the perfect Easter treat to share with a crowd. Yum!

Creme Egg Chocolate Cookie Bars

A thick layer of cookie, a very thick layer of chocolate, a LOT of mini Creme Eggs, with icing to decorate. Would you share? My work colleagues were rather happy when I brought this in. Can’t think why!

Make a batch this Easter, slice into pieces and enjoy. Simple to make with store-cupboard ingredients, you really can’t go wrong with this recipe, and it is great for a party. This would fly off the plate for an Easter bake sale too.

A delicious Easter treat

Course: Dessert
Author: bakingqueen74
For the cookie layer:
  • 120 g unsalted butter softened
  • 90 g dark brown sugar
  • 35 g caster sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 80 g plain flour
  • 120 g self-raising flour
  • 0.5 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
For the chocolate layer and decoration:
  • 150 g dark chocolate
  • 200 g milk chocolate
  • 2 bags of Cadbury mini Creme Eggs approx 8 per bag
  • g Approx 100 icing sugar
  • Orange food colour to colour half of the icing
  1. Freeze your mini Creme Eggs the night before, to make them easier to cut in half.
  2. First make the cookie layer.
  3. Place the butter and two different sugars in a large bowl. Beat together with a wooden spoon (or mixeuntil the mixture is creamy.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla bean paste and beat well.
  5. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt.
  6. Mix together with a wooden spoon until the mixture starts to come together.
  7. Place the cookie dough in a square pan (I used an eight-inch silicone palined with baking paper.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 180 degrees, until golden brown and cooked through.
  9. Leave the cookie to cool for a couple of hours.
  10. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie (bowl over a pan of simmering water).
  11. Pour melted chocolate over the (coocookie layer, spread with a spatula until smooth.
  12. Leave the remaining chocolate in your bowl to set again, and make chocolate shavings with it using a knife.
  13. Cut the mini Creme Eggs in half along the join on the side and place them with the cut side up in the melted chocolate. Press them down into the chocolate. I used about ten mini Creme Eggs here in total, and arranged them in rows.
  14. Carefully transfer the pan to the fridge and chill until set.
  15. Once set, make up two small bowls of water icing. Make sure your icing is quite thick and not runny.
  16. Colour one bowl of icing with the orange food colour and leave the other white.
  17. Drizzle the white and orange icing over the top of the chocolate layer to give the effect of the Creme eggs running all over the place. Allow the icing to set.
  18. Decorate with the chocolate shavings, cut into pieces and enjoy!
