How to make candy cookies

You know you're a bit nerdy when you bake cookies and take pictures of it... and later turn your kitchen experience into a tutorial. But I simply couldn't resist.

Amoena's Candy Cookies
(level: amateur, time: ~15 minutes, cost:~2 euros)

To make these delicious cookies you will need some hard sugar coated chocolate buttons (about 100g is enough).

Smash about 2/3 of your chocolate buttons. If your buttons are small, here's a tip: save the original plastic package, throw few buttons in and use an end of a rolling-pin to smash them one by one. Otherwise you can just smash them as you like.

Turn on your oven when you have finished with all that smashing. Go up to 175 degrees.

Now it's time to make the dough. You will need:
1 cup of sugar
1 egg
1 and a half cup of wheat flour
half teaspoon of baking powder
50 grams of margarine
One cup is about one deciliter.

First mix sugar with margarine. I recommend you use an electronic mixer for this since it takes less time and effort.

Then mix your baking powder with the wheat flour.

Now mix everything including the smashed chocolate buttons. It should look like this:

Use two spoons to pick cookie sized portions of the dough to a cookie sheet. Leave lot's of space around the cookies because they flatten in the oven. You don't want to end up with one big cookie.

Bake the cookies for 15 minutes. And let them cool before you eat them!

Yes. They look weird. But I tested them on my aunt, my uncle and on J.R. and they all said they were delicious and I believe them.


  1. :D Mulla ei ikinä tulis mieleen ottaa kuvia kokatessa. Johtuu ehkä siitä ettei mulla oo kameraa. Toi uunikuva on tosi söpö.

    Pitäiskö sun mainita et ne suklaanapit on mintulla maustettuja? SEhän on aika olennaista, tykkääkö vai ei.

  2. Mä jätin ton tarkoituksella vähän avoimeksi. Että voi valita sellaisia nameja mistä tykkää, kunhan niissä nyt on suklaata ja joku kova sokerinen kuori. Esimerkiksi mariannekarkitkin kävis :P
