Your little ones will love hunting for these Easter eggs!


This Easter, don’t just load your kids’ Easter baskets with dyed Easter eggs — include these sweet “egg” truffles, too!

Made with their favorite store-bought cookie (you could use anything from chocolate chip to Oreos), these little Easter eggs are fun to make with the kids and perfect for your Easter basket or Easter egg hunt party!

What You’ll Need

  • 1 package store-bought cookies, preferably Chips Ahoy! Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • One 8-ounce package of cream cheese
  • Multicolor melting chocolates
  • Wax paper
  • Toothpicks
  • Treat bags
  • Green ribbon

Step One: In a food processor, pulse the store bought cookies until they are crumbly. Do not pulse into fine crumbs: allow them to be a little chunky.

Step Two: In a separate bowl, thoroughly combine the cookie crumbs with the cream cheese by hand.

Step Three: When the mixture is well-combined, roll it into little balls. Once each ball is formed, pinch the top to form an egg shape.

Step Four: Insert a toothpick into the pointed top of each of the balls and lay on wax paper. Place them in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Step 5: Once 15 minutes have passed, take the truffle balls out of the freezer and begin to prepare the melting chocolate according to the directions.

Step 6: Pick the truffles up by the toothpicks and fully submerge them into the melted chocolate. Remove when coated, then lay on wax paper.

Step 7: Place the truffle eggs back into the freezer and allow them to harden. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Remove toothpicks before serving.
