Author: Baking with Grany


  • 75 g Butter at room temperature
  • 125 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 125 g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 100 g M&Ms or Smarties


  • Preheat your oven to 180°c and lightly grease a baking sheet with a little butter.
  • Cream together your butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Warm the golden syrup a little (until it's runny), then add to the butter mixture.
  • Add your M&Ms/Smarties, then sift in the flour & bicarbonate of soda. Mix until combined.
  • Spoon out a heaped teaspoon amount and roll into a small ball before placing onto your pre-greased baking tray. Repeat with the rest of the mixture - you should get around 8-10 cookies.
  • Bake for around 10 minutes or until golden brown. Once cool enough to handle, transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
