Ease: **

Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Cook Time: 12 Minutes


  • 125g softened butter, measure using packet
  • 1 mug/210g soft brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 mug/170g self raising flour
  • 150g pack smarties
  • 1/2 mug oats
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • + smarties to decorate and make it look pretty...if you haven't eaten the rest while cooking.

You really need a cake tin to store these in once they are cooked or they may not last for a day. Ours managed to spread over two days as our resident, infamous chocoholic was absent the day they were made.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC fan oven/200ºC/gas 6. Grease 2 baking trays.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar together. Add the vanilla extract and the egg, beat well.
  3. Add the flour, smarties, oats and cocoa. Mix to a stiff dough.
  4. Roll into a 30cm sausage and cut into about 24 cookies. Place on the baking trays. Leave space between them as they spread out. Press a few smarties in each to decorate.
  5. Place in the oven for 12 minutes. The cookies should be crisp on the outside and a little chewy on the inside.
