These easy no-bake cookie dough balls are filled with Cadbury Mini Eggs, a perfect Easter snack or dessert that’s gluten-free and fun to make with the kids!
Just a heads up, this recipe is a total game changer. Only a few ingredients and so easy to make, these no-bake bite sized cookie dough balls are made with mini eggs inside – just welcoming Easter with open arms. And let’s just say that I wasn’t sure who would end up finishing them all, me or the kids!
I recently put together my girls’ surprise Easter gift baskets and I had to include mini eggs. I mean, what’s Easter without mini eggs?! Am I the only one who buys them year ’round? Who can resist that crispy shell coating and milk chocolate centre? On top of that, the pastel colours are so fun and cute! It gets better – put them into cookie dough balls (no eggs and no baking required) and the world becomes a happier place.
They’re super fun to make as an activity with the little ones. Let the kids help you shape the batter and don’t feel bad if they start eating it too soon! It’s safe to eat because there are no eggs involved.
If you only have chocolate chips at hand, that would work as well. I usually use these dairy free kind, or the no sugar added dark chocolate chips for myself! You could add in some bright coloured sprinkles too, really get creative with it! And if you’re really craving something for yourself, you need to try these No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls that are vegan and gluten-free. So easy to make and such a yummy treat!
How to make Mini Egg Cookie Dough Balls
With only a few ingredients, these cookie dough balls are so much fun to make with the little ones. It’s not that messy and tastes absolutely delicious! Make any shape you want out of these because it’s kind of like edible play dough. The 1-inch thick balls are the perfect portion sizes for a quick and yummy snack or dessert.
Make these mini egg balls with your favourite gluten-free flour (we use almond flour). For a paleo option, you can use a natural sweetener in substitution for the sugar (raw honey or pure maple syrup are great options to try).
