Rainbow cookies

rainbow cookies 4These soft chewy cookies are a firm favourite in our house, so much so that a batch of 60 small cookies is unlikely to last the week. I recently shared a random photo of a batch cooling on wire racks with Stork (@bakewithstork) on twitter as part of their #storkpassiton monthly draw. Last month the prize was a Kenwood stand mixer and amazingly I won it!! It arrived this week and is gorgeous so I thought I would share the recipe for my cookies. Why not have a go at making some then share a photo with them using the #storkpassiton hashtag and see if you’re lucky too.


225g Margarine

200g Light muscavado sugar

150g Castor sugar

2 Large eggs (beaten)

1 tsp Vanilla extract

400g Plain flour

1/2 tsp Salt

2 and a half tsp Bicarbonate of soda

100g Dark chocolate chips / chopped chocolate

100g Smarties or other candy coated chocolate beans either full size or mini.


  • Preheat the oven to 170c.
  • Cream the margarine and sugar in a freetsanding mixer.
  • Add the vanilla extract to the beaten eggs then add little by little to the buttercream mixture.1
  • In a separate bowl mix together the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients while mixing on a slow speed.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and smarties.
  • Grease 2 – 4 baking trays (depending on how many shelves you have in your oven) and place small balls of the biscuit mixture on the trays – I tend to fit 9 to 12 balls per tray depending on the shape.

  • Bake for 8 – 10 minutes, the cookies will spread while they bake and should still be chewy once they have cooled.
