I have never been brave enough to make this but doesn’t it look delicious ?
Even the colours look vibrant.
I always struggle with colours when baking so tend not to try anything adventurous like this.
In the past i have used food colours ( in the little bottles ) and food gels ( mainly Dr.Oetker ) but turned out to be a failure. Is it worth using food colour paste ? Have never used paste before but if it gives this lovely colour than i will definitely give it a go
Any suggestions greatly appreciated – Thankyou

Ooops my first christmas post – apologies
I know, I know its only June but Christmas will soon be upon us and people probably saying ” it’s ages away yet ” or ” it’s way to early to be thinking about christmas ”
But i am nearly done for christmas. Family & friends use to laugh at me when i say ” i am almost done ” but it’s true I am almost done.
The trick for me i found was to get the bargains early ( all year round & have an idea what you want to buy ) and store them away ( if you have the space ) and another fab trick is that i have a Cath Kidson christmas organiser so i can jot down all presents ( and for whom ) and where i have stored them as i often forget. The most valuable trick for me is by being on bargain sites on social media i.e Facebook ( if anyone wants to know what the page is by all means drop me a message )
Honestly the amount i save doing it this way is unreal. As my previous post V Tech Toot Toot Bargain showed how much i saved. Recently i got some The Good Dinosaur bargains in Disney sale, now i totaled it all up and should of cost me £98 but i paid £33. Yes i know some folks are saying ” well you need the money to get the bargains ” this is true and i appreciate them thinking this, but i no means have an endless pit of money – far from it trust me.
I explained to god daughter the reason i do it early and surprise she has now started to buy for christmas as she said ” i now get why you do it and the money you save is unreal ” Yes i save money but money saved is usually spent on more presents – oops
I am not bragging about being almost done for christmas but just letting you know the bargains are out there 🙂
Happy bargain hunting 🙂
I first made these at Christmas time and pretty much been making these at least once a month since, thanks to family members always asking me for these.
I have never had a Millies Cookie before but was very surprised when i was told mine were better than the shop ones !
So many variations can be used for these but batches of choc chip & smarties ( not together ) seem to be very popular in my house.
Recipe is so simple and i did find i had to cook then for 20 minutes not 7- 10 as stated in recipe and i make way more than 17 each time.
Give them a go !

Remember my previous blog post Wish Jars where i mentioned using an old candle jar ?
I just remembered that they have other uses !
I was given some flowers a while ago and did not have a spare vase, but what i did have was an empty candle jar – can we say the make of it ? Am sure you pretty much know what candle company i am on about anyway ………Ta-dah a perfect vase and also recycling
