I think that it is safe to say that Cadbury Mini Eggs are my VERY favorite chocolate candy. That is a huge statement to make considering how many different chocolate candies I love. Part of my love for them is because of the memories I have associated with the only-once-a-year-treat. I could always count on there being a crystal candy dish filled with the chalky, matte, pastel-colored beauties at my mom’s house around Easter. Now that I am all grown up (???) I set strict limits on only allowing myself to purchase one bag per year of the creamy Cadbury treats because I am realistic and know that any willpower I pretend to have on a daily basis quickly goes out the window when those tiny chocolate eggs are in my presence. This year, I wanted to feature my beloved Cadbury Mini Eggs and I made a whopper of a treat to show them off!
The milk chocolate ganache that fills these Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups is other-worldly. Do you know the perfectly fudge texture of the middle layer of a Dairy Queen ice cream cake? That is the texture that it reminds me of. This milk chocolate ganache is firm enough that it will stay put and not run all over the place, but flowable enough to scoop or spread exactly where you want it. Let’s just say I will be making this ganache often and smearing it on everything I eat.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups with Milk Chocolate Ganache are the perfect bed to rest my precious Cadbury Mini Eggs atop. I’m really into cookie cups lately because I would always choose a cookie over a cupcake, yet i love the presentation of a perfectly frosted and sprinkled cupcake, so cookie cups are the best of both desserts. I also love that cookie cups allow for a soft and chewy cookie center every time.
These Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups with Milk Chocolate Ganache are the perfect dessert to celebrate the upcoming Easter holiday, or any occasion. Anyone who loves chocolate (most of the world’s population) and/or chocolate chip cookies (every human with taste buds, duh) will be overjoyed if you present them with these ultimate chocolate treats.
