Crispy and soft like it just came from a bakery.

A quick way to make it disappear without giving them the whole chocolate bunny is to whip up a batch of these easy and quick cookies.

Kids Candy Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Yields roughly 2 dozen cookies


  • ½ cup lard or shortening

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 1 egg

  • a splash of vanilla

  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda

  • 1 ½ cups of your kid's chocolate roughly chopped into chunks the size of chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375

  2. Cream lard, sugars, egg and vanilla for approximately 5 minutes on medium with your stand mixer using the paddle attachment. It should be light and fluffy.

  3. Stir together the dry ingredients in a 2nd bowl

  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Mix slowly being sure not to over-mix.

  5. Remove the bowl from your mixer and add in the chopped-up chocolate chunks. Stir with a wooden spoon.

  6. Drop cookie dough from a teaspoon onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drops should be about 2 inches wide and 2 inches apart. I generally get 12 on each tray.

  7. Bake in a pre-heated for about 10 minutes. If your oven runs hot they might be done in 8 minutes.

  8. When finished let the cookies rest on the tray for about 2 minutes before removing them and putting them on a cooling rack.

Once cooled take a break and enjoy! Store in an air-tight container for up to 10 days, if they last that long.
