Hide and Seek Cookies

by therecipebank


I found this recipe on a really useful baby website;, I adjusted it a little and my girls named them ‘hide and seek’ as we hid smarties inside before cooking them!

  • 100g/4oz softened butter/margarine
  • 100g/4oz soft brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup or honey
  • 150g/6oz self raising flour
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • Smarties
  • Giant chocolate buttons

Preheat the oven to 170°C/160°C fan

Beat the butter, sugar and syrup together until soft and creamy.
Mix in the flour, cocoa and vanilla extract.
Divide the mixture into 15 pieces (we were practicing our maths and if you are a perfectionist each one weighs around 27g!) pop 2-3 smarties in each one and roll into balls using your hands.
Place well apart on greased baking sheets. Flatten slightly and pop a chocolate button on the top of each one.

Bake for about 10 mins until a pale golden colour (don’t cook any longer or they’ll go crispy!)

Leave to cool on the tray for a few minutes and then remove from the tray and finish cooling on a wire rack.
