These Cadbury Mini Egg Bars Aren’t Just for Easter!

I obviously made these Mini Egg Cookie Bars for our Easter celebrations, but this base recipe is perfect to have on hand for a quick, easy dessert year-round! Simply substitute the Cadbury Mini Eggs for other candy. Here are a few of my favorite substitutions:

  • Christmas – sub in candy cane Hershey kisses or Christmas m&m’s
  • Halloween – throw in a whole bunch of those leftover candy bars, any kind would be delicious!
  • Valentine’s Day – add in some Valentine’s M&Ms or top with conversation hearts
  • Any Time of the Year – switch up for Rolo’s, chopped up Oreo’s, or peanut butter cups

How Long Do They Last and How Do I Store Them?

While it’s doubtful they will actually last this long, these cookie bars should be good for around 4-5 days. Be sure to store them in an airtight container or large Ziploc bag just right out on the counter. Storing them in the fridge will harden the candy back up. I would highly recommend warming up your leftover bars in the microwave and topping them with some ice cream.
