These Kinder Cookies are irresistible. This recipe is easy to make and the cookies are sweet and gooey, you won't want to share.


Units Scale
  • 170g (3/4 cup) salted butter, at room temperature
  • 200g (1 cup) brown sugar
  • 50g (1/4 cup) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 10ml (2 tsp) vanilla extract
  • 440g (3 1/4 cups) flour
  • 5g (1 tsp) bicarbonate of soda
  • 300g (15 bars) Kinder chocolate


  1. Place the butter and sugars in a large bowl and mix until creamy and light in colour. This should take around 3 minutes.
  2. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined.
  3. Tip in the flour and bicarbonate of soda and mix until a sturdy dough forms.
  4. Unwrap all the Kinder chocolate. Break 12 bars in half and put them aside. Break the remaining chocolate up into individual pieces.
  5. Fold the Kinder chocolate pieces into the cookie dough until the pieces are evenly dispersed.
  6. Divide the cookie dough into 12 evenly sized balls. Place them on a plate and cover with cling film. Put the plate in the freezer for at least 30 minutes or 1 hour in the fridge to chill.
  7. Once the cookie dough balls have chilled, preheat the oven to 200°C / fan 180°C / 392°F / gas mark 6.
  8. Place 12 balls on two parchment lined baking sheets. I.e. 6 balls on each.
  9. Cook for 15 minutes or until the cookies are crispy on the outside and golder brown.
  10. Now you have to be quick. Remove the cookies from the oven and place a Kinder chocolate bar on each one, putting a bit of pressure on each one to wedge the chocolate into the cookie.
  11. Transfer the cookies on a cooling rack until completely cooled.
  12. Serve on its own or as a dessert with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
