Who doesn't love a surprise egg for easter?  These ones are sugar cookie with a fun filling: mini M&M's! 


But how you ask?  Like this!
First get yourself some awesome silicon molds that give you the opportunity to line them with cookie dough like this, and bake. (Color the dough for pretty colored eggs, this is fairly tedious, but well worth it!)



Then take your mini M&M's (or candy of your choice, but these ones make a pretty shaky noise) and fill one half of a cooled cookie.


Put a generous amount of butter cream icing around the edge and place another half of the egg on top.


Voila! beautiful eggs with a fun surprise inside!  Hope this gives someone else some inspiration!

Cool!  I've been trying to find a non-chocolate basket filler and these look great!

thanks ladies! these are really fun.  I also did the same thing with cupcake as filling instead, but those ones aren't as surprising.



still used the cookie dough for the colored parts, but filled the rest up with cake batter!

How fun! Last year we decorated egg-shaped cookies (well, okay, oval cookies) instead of eggs, and this is a great way to make that even more fun!

I just bought one of these molds (with 4 larger eggs) from my local dollar store to make some cupcakes... My daughter is so excited to make them, but I think I might try your cookie idea also & take some to grandma's when we go!!! Thanks for the inspiration. <3
