Lara Katz: Dreaming Up Delicious


Easy Peasy Smarties Squares Recipe

A fun & simple dessert recipe everyone will love

by: Lara Katz

These delicious squares are a combination of blondies and Smarties cookies. Everyone will love them and they freeze very well. Make a batch for your next get together. I under-baked mine, so the centres were extra soft.


1 package sugar cookie mix
amount of butter, sugar, and water that sugar cookie mix calls for OR use refrigerated pre-made sugar cookie dough
1 cup Smarties or any chocolate chips, etc. you feel like using

  Preheat oven to 350.  Spray an 8x8 square pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  In a large bowl make sugar cookie mix according to package directions.

  Add in Smarties. Using your hands works very well.

  Press dough into pan. Flatten top with hands or spatula.

  Bake 20-25 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Bake closer to 20 minutes for a softer middle.

  Allow to cool for 1 hour before cutting into squares.

I recommend cutting sides off to make nice looking squares. Squares freeze well.

(Makes 16 squares)
