Smarties Cookies

Smarties Cookies

I know what you’re thinking…
Didn’t I just write about making smarties cookies a few months ago?
Yes, I did. But these cookies are different; they’ll beat all other cookies, and tempt you to the dark side!
The last cookies I made were a bit of an experiment, I was making oatmeal cookies that called for chocolate chips. I didn’t have any, so I tossed in a box of smarties mostly to prevent myself from gobbling them all up in a sitting.

The last time, the cookies were adulterated with oats, and coconut and pistachios and dried cranberries… smarties played the role of ‘extra’ – an afterthought.
I wanted to make these cookies again with smarties as the star ingredient – so that I can rightly call them smarties cookies.

Smarties Cookies Stacked

I used a whole cup of smarties for this batch and adapted a great chocolate chip cookie recipe I found.
The recipe is originally vegan and I followed it closely, but adding these smarties makes it not vegan.
What I loved about these cookies were how soft and chewy and yet crunchy they were, and they’re not too sweet.
They’re oh so delightfully colourful.
