Place the butter and sugar into a large bowl and beat together until light and fluffy.

Beat in the egg, vanilla and coffee powder until combined.

Place the flour, cocoa powder, and kosher salt into a medium bowl and whisk together.

Use a small ice cream scoop to scoop out some of the cookie dough into your hand and roll that dough into a ball.

Roll the cookie dough into the crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs.

Place the cookie dough balls onto the cookie sheet.

Use your thumb to make an indentation in the center of the dough.
