Calories: 210kcal


For the cookies

  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For The Ganache

  • 1 bag of chocolate chips milk or dark
  • 2 tablespoons butter unsalted
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • Mini Cadbury Mini Eggs 3 for each cookie cup
  • tart shaper
  • mini cupcake pan
  • mixer


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Prepare two mini-muffin pans by lightly spraying with cooking spray.
  • Beat the peanut butter, sugar, baking soda, and salt at medium speed of your mixer, until well-blended.
  • Add the egg and vanilla, and blend on low-medium speed until incorporated.
  • Scoop the dough by the tablespoonful into each cupcake well. Using a tart shaper or your hands, press the dough into the well along the bottom and along the sides.
  • Bake the cookies for 6 to 8 minutes. Remove them from the oven, and cool right in the cupcake pan. The cups may puff up in the oven, just simply press down the middles if they do.
  • For the ganache, put the chocolate chips in a bowl. Heat the milk and butter in a saucepan over low until hot but not boiling. Pour the heated milk and butter over the chocolate chips. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, then stir until smooth.
  •  Once the cookie cups have cooled, fill each cup with chocolate ganache. Top with Cadbury mini eggs.


  • Give your measuring cup a quick spray with non-stick cooking spray before measuring your peanut butter. This will help release the peanut butter more easily. 
  • Make sure the egg is at room temperature. Place it in a bowl of warm water for 10 minutes before using it. 
  • Do not over bake! These cookie cups will cook quickly. If you want a softer cookie bake for 1-2 minutes less. 
  • Do not fill the cookie cups until the cups have cooled.
