Cooking for kids: Smartie Cookies

Easy throw it all together recipe that contains no eggs.
100 g butter
100 g sugar
1 tbsp golden syrup or honey
150 g self raising flour
85 g Smarties (or any other sugar coated chocolate beans)
Throw everything together in a bowl and mix to form a soft dough (if mixture is too dry then add a tbsp of milk).  Place heaps of the mixture onto baking trays lined with parchment; use a teaspoonful for each heap for standard size cookies (we prefer to use a dessertspoon and have giant cookies), space well apart as they spread as they cook.  Bake in the oven (Gas Mark 4/ 350F/180C) for 12 minutes-18 minutes until they are golden brown.
Take cookies out, they should be really soft, allow to cool on the tray for a couple of minutes to firm up a little.  Put cookies onto a cooling rack – if they are too hard and they break as you remove them from the tray pop back into the warm oven for a minute to soften again.
