Chocolate Smarties Cookies

Perfect with a glass of cold milk! (photo by Amy)

Subway cookies are delicious, aren’t they? So soft and moist and chewy and moreish and generally yum. I could eat them forever.

I can’t decide whether my favourite flavour is the double chocolate or the Smarties, though. So, I did the only sensible thing — I combined the two and made a moist, chewy chocolate cookie with Smarties dotted through it. Yum.


  • 115g softened unsalted butter
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • A teaspoon of vanilla extra
  • 125g plain flour
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • Half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
  • 4 tubes of Smarties
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190°C and line two large baking trays with parchment.
  2. Cream together the butter and the sugar, before beating in the egg and vanilla extract.
  3. Sift in the flour, the cocoa powder and the bicarbonate of soda. Stir together until a dough is formed.
  4. Empty two of the tubes of Smarties onto a chopping board and roughly chop. Add these to the dough along with the whole Smarties from the other tube. Stir until they’re evenly distributed.
  5. Put tablespoons of the mixture onto the baking sheets, spaced evenly apart — you should have enough for 12 large blobs of dough.
  6. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Take them out, let them cool for a couple of minutes, then transfer them onto wire racks to cool completely.

I hope you like them!
