    This would be a really fun family activity with the kids. They would get the enjoyment of making cookies and I’d get the enjoyment of sneaking some of the candy bits :-D. These would be adorable to bring to an Easter family reunion. Thanks for the awesome recipe and beautiful photos.
    All the best,

    My 6 year old would love these and it would be a perfect opportunity to spend more quality time with her. I think she might eat all the eggs before they make it onto the cookies.
