Chocolate Smartie Cookies

This recipe is quick, easy and fun and I’ve been craving them almost every evening since making them. For me, any cookie must be a little gooey in the middle for it to get a solid scoring on my cookie chart. I know what your thinking do you really have a chart, well actually no, but I know what I like and consider myself to be a cookie expert, hell I have eaten enough cookies!

You will not regret making these cookies and how could you. Everyone loves cookies! They are soft, chewy colourful cookies and if you’re a chocoholic like me you are going to adore this recipe.

I don’t know about you but I LOVE Smarties. I know Traditionally they are always for the kids. But us adults love them too! Well, this big kid does anyway. You could use M&M’s or other chocolate coated chocolate beans in this recipe.

This bake was made for my niece and nephews who were visiting, well at least I pretend it was anyway, I just really wanted to bake cookies and used them as an excuse to add smarties, there I said it! This bake went down well with children and adults of all ages, it’s a happy bake.

  1. 125g Unsalted Butter
  2. 100g Granulated Sugar
  3. 100g Light Brown Sugar
  4. 1 Medium Egg, beaten
  5. 1tsp Vanilla Extract
  6. 25g Cocoa Powder
  7. 175g Plain Flour
  8. 1/2tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  9. 1/2tsp Baking Powder
  10. 160g Smarties
  11. 75g Milk Chocolate Chips
  1. Preheat your oven to 180C and line two large baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Mix together the Butter, Light Brown Sugar and Granulated Sugar until light and fluffy and thoroughly combined.
  3. Next mix in the Egg, Vanilla Extract, Cocoa powder, Plain Flour, Bicarbonate of Soda, Baking Powder and beat again until a thick paste/cookie dough is formed.
  4. Fold in the M&Ms and Chocolate Chips and spoon the mixture onto the trays. I use a dessert spoon amount for each.
  5. Make sure they are suitably spread out on the trays so they stay separate! I usually fit 6 on each tray.
  6. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until spread out perfectly crinkly. They might seem slightly under done still, but they will continue to cook when cooling.
  7. Once baked, remove from the oven and leave to cool on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to continue cooling off completely
  1. Enjoy 🙂
