About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

I love the end result of the cookies! Your son's "T" is adorable. Do you think it says anything about his personality? (I'm assuming methodical and practical.)

Just a note for any North Americans, the closest equivalent for Smarties would be M&Ms. You just miss the fun colours of Smarties!


Yum yum - as a big kid I need to make some for me!


Genius! I'm going to shamelessly steal your idea. My twins would love it.


These cookies look so yummy! :-) I certainly must make some soon!

I think your Smarties look different colored than the German ones. I wonder if it's just the photo or an actual difference...

Take care

P.S. Does anyone know if I can use plain white sugar instead of castar sugar? I think I can't get it here.


They're really pretty. I love to make M&M cookies, which I'm pretty sure are like Smarties. I use my usual chocolate-chip cookie dough recipe but use M&M's instead of the chocolate chips.


Oh thank heavens someone clarified that Smarties are like M & Ms in America! We do have Smarties here but they are so tart, I couldn't imagine a whole cookie full of them! And Little Man's T is terrific!

Chel @Sweetbriar Dreams

Oh wow! What a perfect thing to do on a rainy day. I've seen these in the baker shops and always enjoy being naughty and buying these. Now I can do my own designs along with the kids (if I let them!!). x

Eleanor Thomson

Yum! I'd make them with the Traidcraft chocolate meanies as were a Nestle free household.


I think we might have to make these tomorrow - if I can find some smarties! X


Oh wow! Those look delicious!!


Sweet idea! We have Smarties in Canada, too. ;-)

How wonderful, for all! I love those kind of activities, and you are s-o right about being organized and everything equal, so less frustrating that way. I laughed out loud thinking of you at the store sorting candies, (Because I do the same!) :D They all look yummy, even the T one. lol

Amanda Smith

What a good idea Lucy! I have to try this!!!
I can get smarties here sometimes but there is also a Spanish version. Going to look around the supermarket tomorrow!

keep well

Ten out of Ten .... super Mum :-) xx

I made similar for my Hubby's 40th but the colour bleached out of the Smarties so they all looked beige. Most disappointing. I must try it again and see if the colour stays.


Oh wow! How cool, (or hot, if just out of the oven)!
No little peeps to try them out on, so I'll just have to do that myself, methinks.

PS I've bought a crochet hook and loads of wool...will be on your blog...a lot!
So thanking you in advance!


I love it so easy and creative, congratulations

Winwick Mum

Brilliant! We'll have to give those a go over the next few weeks! xx


Like Sally when I made smartie cookies the smarties faded and cracked. I'll try your recipe possibly it's a shorter bake or lower temp than the recipe I used before.

Terri Shea

I thought correctly; our equivalent is m&m's. Actually, check the seasonal candy aisle and you can get some color choices that way, although it's the luck of the bag! I'm going to have to put this on my list, and I'm going to share it with some friends. Thank you for this!


A lovely idea. That littlest boy is a rebel indeed. I'm the same as you when I'm scooping out the hamster food, avoiding the nasty brown things that he doesn't like. CJ xx


I'm in the US and at first thought ,"Why would you put Smarties on a cookie?" Until I read further and discovered that Smarties are the UK's version of our M&M's! Our Smarties are little tart candies! It's funny how the same word can mean different things to different countries! I absolutely put M&M's on , in cookies, ice cream and anything else! Their awesome! :)

One Earlybird

Great idea, made me wish I had little kids. Oh well another one for the memory bank for grandies.

@ Anne from Germany: caster sugar meint einfach feinen Zucker, gibt's im Edeka, Rewe, Kaisers und so
Oder ansonsten kannst Du auch normalen Zucker nehmen, das Resultat ist einfach nicht so glatt.

Liebe Grüße aus Berlin,
