    Beat the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, beat to combine, then mix in the flour and ¼ tsp salt. The dough will be very soft, so put it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to firm up.

    Gently push 1 Maltesers Mini Bunny into 5 of the cookies, 3 Galaxy Golden Eggs into 5 of the cookies and 4 M&M’s Eggs into 6 of the cookies. Put in the fridge for another 30 minutes to chill.
