I’m a huge fan of getting kids in the kitchen and teaching them to cook but from my own experience, the recipes they cook need to be fun, at least to start with. This recipe for my amazing white chocolate cookies is ideal because it’s fun, easy to make and the results are brilliant.
I haven’t had too much time to experiment with new recipes lately so I’ve had to make do with dusting off some of our old favourites. This weekend, we made some of these lovely squidgy white chocolate chip cookies for the first time in ages and judging by how quickly they disappeared, it won’t be long before I make them again.
Just as a quick note, this recipe originally used white chocolate M&Ms which I got from our local sweet shop as they stocked them for a while in their American Candy section but I couldn’t get them this time around so I went with some Dr Oetker Unicorn chips which I got from the shop. You can use pretty much anything you want in them – smarties or any of the other type of M&Ms will work just as well.
How to make my Amazing White Chocolate Cookies
- 280g of Plain flour
- 1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
- 1 teaspoon of Salt
- 225g of softened Butter
- 170g of Sugar
- 170g of Brown Sugar
- 1 teaspoon of Vanilla
- 2 Eggs
- 3/4 of a bag of White Chocolate M&M’s
- 250g of White Chocolate Chips
- Preheat oven to 190 c.
- Lightly grease a baking tray or if you prefer, line it with baking parchment.
- In a mixing bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and salt – set this to one side for a few minutes.
- In a second mixing bowl, blend butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla, until smooth.
- Add your eggs one at a time, mixing well each time.
- Gradually add your flour mixture in 1/3s, while you mix it well with your hand mixer.
- After the batter is mixed well, hand stir your M&M’s and white chocolate chips in.
- Refrigerate your cookie mix for around 15 minutes.
- Roll your dough into one inch balls and place them on a baking tray making sure they’re well spread out.
- Bake for 4 minutes and then remove from oven and add sprinkles.
- Pop them back in the oven for another 5 minutes, until the edges are golden.
- Let them cool.
Honestly, they’re not only amazing but the kids will have so much fun making them!
It’s this sort of fun recipe that my two first started with when they wanted to be more independent and cook on their own and now they can cook a full meal for us.
