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

Ooh! We love smartie cookies and we are all aged over 12!


What a nice colourful start to my Thursday :)


Yummy cookies. Wish I could have one.


They look delicious !

What a great idea! I did a similar thing once when I was parent help at Kindy. I pre-made the gingerbread dough then the kids rolled it out and cut used cookie cutters to make their own gingerbread men (we used currants as eyes, buttons etc - preschools aren't too keen on sweets here).


I love Smarties, so much better than M & M's. Basically the same, hard candy coating with chocolate inside but Smarties are just better. In Canada we have Rockets which is what the Americans call Smarties, they are a tart chalky candy. Don't you have blue and brown Smarties? We do in Canada. Your cookies look great.

Oh, they are so beautiful and colourful. The cookies almost remind me of some of your lovely crochet work :)

@ 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.

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


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! :)


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

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!


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.

Winwick Mum

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


They look good, love the smiley face one

I love it so easy and creative, congratulations

PEDRITXES from Barcelona .Spain


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 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.


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

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

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


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


Oh wow! Those look delicious!!


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

Eleanor Thomson

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