Did Easter sneak up on you like it did me?? Where does the time go? I have no clue but I do know that I have to make something delicious for Easter. I love to make cookies I think they are the perfect little something. They are not a great big cake and they can be made in different sizes. Well I came up with these Peanut Butter Candy Confetti Cookies just for Easter and not only are they pretty but they are so yummy.
Now before I get into the nitty gritty of the cookies let me tell you about my favorite eggs and the great contest they are having! I happen to love Eggland’s Best Eggs and for good reason. I know I have shared with you before the benefits of Eggland’s Best Eggs but let me share it with you again.
“Eggland’s Best (EB) is the No. 1 branded egg in the U.S. and is an excellent source of vitamins D, B12, E, B5 and riboflavin. EB eggs have six times more vitamin D, more than double the omega-3s, 10 times more vitamin E and 25% less saturated fat than ordinary eggs. Independent testing has also confirmed that Eggland’s Best eggs stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs.

Now lets talk about these Peanut Butter Candy Confetti Cookies. I love sprinkles so much, I found these pretty pastel sprinkles at my local Walmart where you can find Eggland’s Best Eggs too. Now what could be prettier and funner than putting these pastel sprinkles in my cookie batter? Yes I did put them in my batter and they look amazing! I used more white sugar than brown sugar in this recipe because I wanted those sprinkles to show in the batter and I think it worked perfectly.
I also made these cookies a bit bigger than my regular cookies. They are about 31/2″ in diameter just the right size to hold 3 Peanut Butter Candies. When I pulled the cookies out of the oven while they were still hot I pressed 3 Peanut Butter Candies on the top of each cookie. Because of the heat the candies stick to the cookies and don’t fall off! Plus there are peanut butter chips in the batter too! Mr. Pinkcakeplate loves peanut butter so I knew he would love these cookies.
