Chocolate Cookies with Smarties

Showing yourself some self love can come in many forms. A favourite way of mine is with food, particularly chocolate, and also particularly baked goods. Here we have both! Whip this small batch up in no time and hog them all to yourself if you like, or spread the love and share with your valentine. My kiddos say sharing is caring!

If you have made these, I would love to share your creations. Feel free to send a photo or tag on Instagram @bairdsbaking . Find more recipes to and reels over there as well!

More chocolate you say? Try these Mocha Brownies certain to satisfy!

  1. Looks fantastic! It’s been a while since I’ve read about Smarties — the Philippines used to have ’em but Nestle stopped selling them here. Maybe M&Ms would work as a substitute?

    (Also, many thanks for following The Monching’s Guide! Couldn’t comment on your About section, so I hope you don’t mind me leaving this here.)
