Smartie Cookies

After making Mars Bar Cookies, Evan became quite excited by the thought of “candy cookies”.  He wanted to make Twizzler cookies but I had to say “no”…that would have been just plain icky!  Thankfully we had a ton of Halloween mini boxes of Smarties so I convinced him to make Smartie Cookies.

NOTE – For all the Americans who read my blog – Smarties are like M&Ms they are NOT those sweet/sour chalky candies.

Smartie Cookies

Adapted from this recipe

1 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

2 tsp vanilla

2 eggs

1 1/4 cup all purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 cup Smarties or M&Ms

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Cream together the butter and sugars.  Add the vanilla and mix well.  Add eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition.

Mix together flours, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.  Add flour mixture to butter & sugar mixture a bit at a time.  Mix well. Fold in Smarties & chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for 9-11 minutes until golden brown.

What is your favorite “candy” cookie?  I think Reese’s Pieces cookies would be divine.  Maybe next time!

My favorite candy cookie turned out to be a chocolate chip cookie stuffed with a full Resse's peanut butter cup. Yum!
