Rainbow Cookies

This recipe combine two of my favourite things…. Cookies and Smarties! They are very colourful so look super fun and impressive (but are totally simple to make). I’m not going to pretend these are healthy in any way… But like most unhealthy treats, they taste amazing!
Prep time: 20 minutes 

Makes approximately 30 medium sized cookies.


  • 475g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 120g butter (melted)
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 120g brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 150g Smarties 


1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

2. Mix the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium sized bowl using a wooden spoon.

3. In another bowl cream the butter, sugar and the brown sugar using an electric mixer. Add the eggs and the vanilla and mix on medium speed until combined.

4. Add in the flour mixture on low speed until combined. Then add in the Smarties and gently fold it into the mixture using a wooden spoon.

5. Scoop a small ball of dough into the palm of your hand and flatten. Place the dough ball onto your baking tray.

6. Bake for about 8-10 minutes. The cookies may feel soft when you remove them from the oven, but they will become crisper when cooled.

7. Remove the cookies from try and let them cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks. Then, enjoy!
