  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan oven) and lightly grease a 10inch cast iron skillet pan* with butter or spray oil.
  • Place the unsalted butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30-60 seconds until the butter has melted.
  • Add the caster sugar and light brown sugar into the melted butter and mix until combined.
  • Mix in the whole egg, both egg yolks and vanilla extract.
  • Now fold in the flour and salt until the mixture comes together to form a cookie dough.
  • Transfer 200g of the Mini Eggs into a ziplock sandwich bag and bash with a rolling pin until roughly broken up. You'll want to keep the remaining 40g Mini Eggs whole to decorate the top of the cookie.
  • Fold the broken Mini Eggs into the cookie dough.
  • Tip the dough into the skillet pan and press it out using your hands.
  • Bake for 25 minutes until pale golden on top. The cookie should still be slightly wobbly, this will make sure it stays nice and gooey inside.
  • As soon as the cookie is out of the oven, gently press the remaining Mini Eggs into the top.
  • Leave to cool for 10 minutes, then top with ice cream and serve!
