Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Easter Eggs

Servings 24 (or more) eggs
Author Nicole Burkholder


  • 1 batch of edible cookie dough (minus the chocolate topping)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups vanilla candy melts (depending on how messy you are, how thick you like the candy coating, etc.)
  • assorted sprinkles


  • After the cookie dough has firmed up in the fridge (at least 3 hours) cut the pan into equal portions and roll each piece into a ball.
  • Line a tray with wax paper.
  • Gently smash the ball down to create an egg shape. If the dough gets too soft while you're handling it, place it on the tray and put it back in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes.
  • Melt the candy according to package directions (usually in 30 second increments in the microwave)
  • One at a time, place the eggs into the melted candy and coat on all sides. Lift with a fork and allow the excess candy to drain.
  • Decorate with sprinkles or colored icing.
  • Place in the fridge to harden quickly.
