Mini Easter Egg Cookies!

This couldn't be easier.  I've been trying to think of something festive for the upcoming holiday (Easter) to put in my kids lunchboxes, and this is definitely a keeper!  Thanks to our friends at the Yummy Mummy Club for sharing this one!

Mini Easter Egg Cookies

1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 cups milk chocolate chips (or semi-sweet if you prefer)
2 pkg. (200g each) Cadbury Mini Eggs

Preheat oven to 375F.  Beat butter, both sugars, eggs and vanilla until fluffy.
Mix in flour and baking soda, until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Using a small scoop or two spoons, drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto baking sheet (approx. 2-3 inches apart).
Press 3-4 Cadbury Mini Eggs into each mound of dough.
Bake 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and using spatula, move cookies to wire racks. Let cool completely.
