Baking With Kids – Inspired by Bero Chocolate Chip Cookies

We usually head to BeRo for some simple, child friendly recipes – the chocolate cake and the rock buns are our school holiday ‘go to’.  This time we’ve decided to go off piste…

While the BeRo Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe is GREAT we prefer our cookies a little more chewy (and chocolatey) so we have adapted (and some might even say perfected) the BeRo Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe into something wonderful! Even the neighbours loved them…

Getting the kids engaged in the kitchen from a young age will give them a better understanding of food groups and how to make balanced choices though it can sometimes be a bit of a chore.  We found that getting them their own cool kids baking kits so they can “practice” cooking was a great way to get them hands on in the kitchen.

The Printable recipe card is down below.

BeRo chocolate chip cookie method

Inspired by BeRo Chocolate Chip Cookie Method

  • Preheat the oven to 200°/180° fan/Gas Mark 4 and line a baking tray
  • Cream sugar and butter together until light and fluffy
  • Mix in the egg and vanilla essence
  • Sift the flour and cocoa into the mix and keep stirring until it gets a bit dough like
  • Stir in the Smarties
  • Roll into ping pong ball sized pieces and flatten a little. Evenly space them on your baking tray. I recommend baking only one tray at a time to get an even bake.
  • Bake for 7 mins for a really chewy cookie or 9 mins for a slightly crisper cookie.
  • They are best warm but will last a few days in a good tin.

If you don’t want a chocolate cookie base you can use 220g of self raising flour instead of using cocoa. If you don’t want to use smarties you can swap them for raisins, chocolate chips, nuts – pretty much anything your heart desires.
