I love this! Have bought them on several occasions as they are a favourite of my girls! So easy to make, delicious, and they look fabulous too! :o)

Sorry for the huge delay in posting this review....the cookie mix turned up a couple of weeks before my girls and I moved into our own house in Sept last year...(we had been staying with friends in Chch since the earthquake in Feb). I have only got the net connected last week! I have to say.....these were the yummiest cookies ever!! My 6 year old daughter and I made them a week or so after we moved into our own place while my baby was sleeping. These were so quick and easy to make...and we both enjoyed the quality time together! I loved the fact that it was super quick....because it still meant that I was able to do all those other things that us mum's leave until baby is napping! These have definatley been a staple in my pantry since we tried them. Thanks Betty!!

i am so sorry, i completely forgot to post this review. however, i let miss 7 take over making these choc chip cookies, i think these are fantastic to start teaching them how to bake with the dry ingredients already mixed and the recipes so easy for them to read and understand, she did all the adding of ingredients, the mixing, the putting mixture on the tray and the baking. she was SO proud of herself and has baked a few times since, such an easy delicious recipe built her confidence and im hoping i have a hottest home baker in the making!! thank you for letting us trial this product :)

Sorry for delay with review. We received the chunk choc chip to review, Easy to make, made decent amount, nice home cooked taste (not chemical) everyone enjoyed them and had fun making them.Thanks

We weren't chosen for this review, but we have recently purchased the Brownie and the Caramel Muffins. Both were great fun to make with my 2 year old daughter. She mixed the oil, water and egg (after having cracked the egg into the bowl) and loved it. Then added the powder mixture. Her favourite part was eating the added extra (mini m&m's and caramel). Really quick and easy baking with the kids so I'll happily buy again.

This cookie mixes are on special at Countdown this week. Only $2.99 a box (half price) so worth stocking up on.

I'm so sorry for the very late review. I have spent the last 5.5 weeks in hospital with my 5 year old daughter who got critically ill and needed emergency open heart surgery. The cookies arrived whilst we were in hospital and I told her that I couldn't wait to get home and do some baking with her (as it is her favourite thing). So the cookie mix Milk Chocolate Chunk waited for us at home!
We got home last week and as she can't go back to school just yet, we made the cookies. They were super easy to make and other than measuring out the butter for her and helping do the final mixing - Emily made them herself (inbetween pinching the chocolate chunks!!)
We made half the batch into farm shaped cookies using a cookie tray - and the other half normal cookies. The farm ones worked okay but I left them in too long so they were a little overdone which was my fault. The normal round cookies on a flat tray worked much better - they don't take very long at all.
The cookies are so yummy but are perhaps a little too sweet. I love how they are crunchy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside. The decent chocolate chunks are awesome!
The only complaint I'd have is that I eat too many of them!

So after almost losing my daughter - these were the best tasting cookies I've ever had as she was home with me to make them.
I'd definitely buy them again especially if you need a quick and easy but homemade plate to take and don't have much time.
Thanks to Betty Crocker and Kidspot for letting me review them and apologies again for the delay.

We got the Milk Chocolate Chunk cookies. Easy to make, but neither my daughter or I can eat them. They are far too sweet. And my 11 year old daughter has an extremely sweet tooth!!

i got my box of milk choc in the post and i must say they where mad up and on the tray in the time is took my partner to change my daughters nappie!! they are quicke easy and awsome!! so yummie

I received my box of Rainbow cookies a few days ago and set to cooking on Sunday.
Easy Peasy - even I managed not to ruin these!
I was very glad that it said on the box "cookies may look undercooked but will firm on standing" as I would have been tempted to leave them in longer.
They were extremely easy to make and best of all, no big mess in the kitchen!
I only got 20 cookies out of it, but that's mainly because some of the mixture made it to my mouth before it got to the cookie tray :)
The only fiddly bit was putting the M & M's onto the cookies (some of those ended up in my mouth too!), but that wouldn't put me off making them again.
Most were eaten on the day of baking, but the ones eaten the next day were still nice and fresh after being stored in an airtight container.
I would recommend these to other people - except for the price. They are good value, but I feel that in todays economic times, they may be beyond some peoples budget.
However, if they can be found on 'special', they are well worth getting.
Thanks for the chance to review these!

We got sent the rainbow cookies and it was such a great surprise! My son wanted to bake them straight away at 7.40am! It was actually a great incentive to get him dressed and get my daughter off to school so we could get baking. My almost 4year old was great at adding the extra ingredients (i broke the eggs) and i helped him stil the last bit then he scooped the mixture onto the tray. He had a ball putting all the m&m's on top and making patterns and pictures. The finished priduct was a hit and only lasted 1 day!!! Have bought them again and we are looking forward to
Lots more baking in the holidays!! Thanks so much for the opportunity to participate! :-)

We received the rainbow cookies and when my son saw it he told me o wait for him to get home from school we can do it together. So we (my 3yr old and my 5 yr old boys) all did it together. It was so easy to make and there were just more than enough m & m,s on it. The boys watched it as it cook. They said it was so yummy. I even have enough for my sons snacks the following day. Since then we have tried th choc chips cookies and more rainbow biscuits. Thank you for choosing us to review them.

We were lucky enough to be chosen to review the Milk Chocolate Chunk cookies - summed up in one word - YUM!
This is the first time I have tried the cookie Betty Crocker product. And I must say I am very impressed. I find that I don't bake anywhere near as much as I used to so was very interested to see how easy these were to make. And I must say I was very impressed. Very little own ingredients needed, and its all just there ready to mix and bake. My daughter loved being able to help and mix this all together. And its brilliant that there is quite a lot of chocolate chunks provided - because she ate half of them I think before they ended up in the mix. Easy instructions, nice and quick to make. I will definitly buy these again, and I will be recommending to my other busy mum friends. I hope they bring out many more versions of different biscuits because I much prefer baking this way :)
pepper80 - 11:30 AM on Fri-23-Sep-2011 reply | message
We got the choc chip version of these cookies and they were very easy to make just one egg and 90 gms of butter and mix easy as my daughter had a blast squishing the mix togther making sure it was all mixed up. Then she rolled them into balls rather than spooning it onto the tray like it saide and she was able to press down easly on them to slighty flatten them then in the oven they went. I found they cooked very well and fast and made nice large cookies. All my kids really enjoyed the taste of these and so did myself and hubby they were like eating a chewy chocolate cookie that you get from the cookie shops in malls will be adding these to my shopping for an easy treat that me and my daughter can make together for mummy and daughter time also there was alot of chcolate drops in it was super.

The rainbow cookies arrived the day I was leaving to go away for a couple of weeks (so sorry about the late review). We arrived back on Sunday and yesterday I clicked that there would be no baking for my daughter to take to daycare today so decided to give Betty Crockers a go.
It took longer for my oven to heat up than it did for me to mix the cookie dough together which was great as my mind is still adjusting to the time difference so I'm not running on full steam this week.
Though the packet said that each biscuit would hold approx 7 mini M&M's but I decided to mix it up a bit so that I could give my daughter biscuits that only had a few bits of chocolate on them as I had noticed on the packet that there is a bit of sugar in the mix and the home-baking I usually do only uses a small amount of sugar.
But I also had fun with the M&M's by making smiley faces and various shapes with them. Some of my M&M's where broken but I'm guessing this is from being delivered to me by courier.
I cooked my biscuits for the minimum time required as stated by the packet (13min) but feel that I should have pulled them out after about 10min. I did make 28 cookies so slightly more than the amount stated on the packet so this could be why.
The taste of the cookies is very nice and does not leave a yucky after taste in your mouth as other packet recipes I have tried in the past do.
My daughter loves the M&M's - she eats them off the top before happily eating the cookie.
The packet says that the cookies are best eaten on the day that they are made but can be stored in an air tight container for up to 3 days and they taste great today too.
The problem with them only being able to be stored for 3 days is that I only give my daughter (20months) 1 cookie a day, thankfully we have guests staying with us so the remaining 20 odd cookies that are left aren't going to end up on my waistline as they all enjoyed cookies with their ice-cream last night :-)

We got the Rainbow Cookies version and they were AMAZING!! There were lots of M&Ms in them so they were delicious and very chocolately! They were easy to make and didn't take that long which was great. I would definitely buy these again!!! Thanks Betty Crocker and Kidspot!!!

I have had the most wonderful maternity leave and spent a lot of time with my eldest son making cookies and yummy chocolatey things. He will be starting school soon and with me going back to work not long after that making beautiful boxed cookies would make my life so much easier saving more time than putting everything together myself. Love to try the betty crockers cookies so we could have yummy treats for afternoon tea.
miggs9 - 2:51 PM on Mon-19-Sep-2011 reply | message
we received the choc chip version of these cookies. YUM! My 2.8yr old son helped me make them and I must say compared to a "bake from scratch" recipe this was sooooo much easier. Usually my little helper insists on doing the measuring of flour etc and it ends up all over the floor - with this product we just had to snip the corner of the packet and put it in a bowl! We made all different sized cookies for various family members and everyone thought they were delicious. Not at all "boxy" or chemically tasting. Would definitely buy again
tigerlilynz - 9:03 AM on Mon-19-Sep-2011 reply | message
sorry for the late review, my daughter and i made these and she had great fun(she hates getting her hands dirty) she got in and had fun squishing it all up and putting the mms on top. so easy to make and the kids just love the end result. i would get these again, even the big kids(husband) enjoyed them.

I received the Rainbow cookie Mix few days ago and we baked them today. We had lots of fun!!!! I would definitely recommend this as it's fun to make and easy to make! I will get these again as I didn't expect them to be so much fun and also so tasty!

Our girls and I just made 'Rainbow Gingerbread People'! We didn't get to trial this time but Rachael and Michelle are usually keeping themselves up to date with what's going on in Kidspot looking over my shoulder!! (Potential grown up Kidspotters!) "Can we buy these?" they said. They must be alright because they've just eaten three each!!
ticklebear - 11:20 PM on Fri-16-Sep-2011 reply | message
We got sent the milk chocolate chunk cookies I got my 7 year old daughter to make them and she was so excited as she wants to bake but needs a lot of help. She found the instructions easy to follow and the only part she needed help with was putting them into the oven. They turned out really well and she was so proud of herself. They only lasted three days in our house as they were eaten for afterschool snacks and lunches. This isn't something I have brought before (although I have brought cake mixes) and so will probably buy these on special maybe every couple of months. Thanks so much for allowing us to trial these.
nzchick - 2:48 PM on Fri-16-Sep-2011 reply | message
I didn't get chosen to review this time around, but couldn't resist buying a box of the chocolate chunk cookies in the shopping this week for the first time. They didn't disappoint - full of delicious chocolate and super yum for the whole family. My kids loved that these were easy to make - my son said after we put them in the oven - "See mum it's not that hard - why do they all get so hot and bothered on Masterchef!" . Too funny. :) Will definitely buy more of these. :)

hi made the cookies last weekend and forgot to post review. the packet was easy to use but i wouldn;t say it was hard to measure out flour, sugar, baking powder. it would only help iof you didn't have those items in the house but did have marg aand eggs. i was keen to see what my kids and hubby thought compared to polka dot biscuits i make from a dinna hay recipe and i'm sorry to say they thought my homemade ones were better than the packet mix. thx for the opportunity to try the mix out but i wouldn't buy them myself.

Wow! these cookies sound great! My children have been watching over me as i read these reviews, and have been looking at the pics, and we have agreed that next shopping day we had better get some to try! thanks so much for all the feedback, it really helps us decide what we want to try when we know the feedback is coming from real families!!

We were lucky enough to receive the Rainbow cookies to trial, and i must say they were really easy to make! Masters 6 and 4 helped do everything they loved shaping the cookie mixture and adding the m&ms on the top (i think they ate more than went on the cookies!) I will most definatly be buying these as a special treat, YUMMY!
DiKetel - 10:04 PM on Wed-14-Sep-2011 reply | message
YUM!! These cookies were fabulous!! Didn't last long - a couple to daycare and hubby took the rest! As I can't eat milk chocolate, I missed out!! I was kinda hoping before I opened the packed that the chocolate chunks might have been in a separate bag, and then I could have put white choc chunks in some - but oh well - I didn't really need them anyway! But my big boy and little boy LOVED them!! Thanks!!
buzzybee98 - 8:36 PM on Wed-14-Sep-2011 reply | message
Arghhh! My cookies didn't last long enough to take a photo! They were very easy to make, and looked and tasted good (plus there were spare M & Ms for the cook!). Will certainly look at buying these mixes in the future!

My son and I made the Betty Crocker Milk Chocolate chunk cookies after school on Monday. They were so quick and easy to make - I did wonder if I was missing something!! 15 mins later and they were done - YUM YUM. I had to hide them from my son other wise he would have eaten them all. He has been very lucky and had some to take to school for his lunches this week. I even tried to made a gingerbread shaped one but it didnt go to well - but my son still ate it up!!! The only thing was the chocolate chunks disappeared inside the biscuit and didnt sit on top like the picture on the box. Would buy them again - would try the rainbow cookies next time.
Zaylah - 6:00 PM on Wed-14-Sep-2011 reply | message
We got to try the Betty Crocker™ Rainbow Cookies (with M&M’s).. yum yum yum! It was so simple to do and I loved that it only took one bowl and spoon to make, talk about easiest clean-up job ever! We haven't done a packet mix before so was great to be able to whip these up and have them in the oven in a matter of minutes. Yum yum will definitely recommend!
jobrush - 7:24 PM on Tue-13-Sep-2011 reply | message
We had the M&M mix to trial. On Friday I spontaneously had a friend and her 2 children over for lunch so decided we "needed" cookies for afters. So I quickly whipped up a batch (and it was quick!) and then set about putting them on the tray. Despite checking the box several times to see how many it made I missed the 1 time that it is printed at the top of the instructions, so my first and only criticism is that it would be useful for that info to be in more than one place for busy tired mums like me! Si I guessed and ended up with very large cookies....which suited my friend and I perfectly! Interestingly the kids liked the idea of the cookies with lollies on, but on first try neither of them liked them. What almost 4 year old doesn't like cookies with m&m's on??? So my friend and I ate theirs too!
Nonplussed by their weird opinions I took the leftovers to friends that evening and they went down a treat! These are a great quick treat to whip together and by the end of the night even the fussy kids had decided the liked them after all! Next time I would cook them slightly less so that the centres were still a bit soft and chewy...and I'd make them much much smaller!!!
mumoftoo - 2:52 PM on Tue-13-Sep-2011 reply | message
I too haven't tried packet mix cookies before. I don't know why cos as packet mixes go these were enjoyed by my son. He had fun baking pretty much on his own! And of course loved the M&M's!!

I have never brought 'packet mix' cookies before.

We were lucky enough to trial the Betty Crocker™ Milk chocolate chunk cookies.

Well, there goes my diet!! Not sure how they work out that there are 18 servings in a pack coz once I started I had a really hard time stopping! These were delicious and really easy to make. Master Moo (4) broke the egg and put the butter in, and I helped him ensure it was all mixed up.

Easy easy easy, I was unsure that the egg and butter would create enough moisture but it did.

Kids loved them, and I'm not sure how long they'd last in the pantry as they were all gone by the day after we made them.

Thanks so much for letting us trial this product, I'll definately be buying some for special occasions.

Review from rinar:
I have just baked my m&ms cookies & my boys just gobbled them all up as they came out of the oven. I did taste one though & they left one for their dad. Anyway it was OH SO EASY to make & baking time is quick as. These are great & i will definitely make this a fortnightly treat as they are a bit too out of our budget. Many thanks for the opportunity to finally know what it's like.

These are soo good .. yet sooo bad! I love chocolate chip cookies but hardly ever have them because I can never make a good batch and even the ones that I buy are just not that nice, but these were amazing. So easy to make, so quick to cook .. and we had to try them warm cause the smell of them baking was amazing, We will defiantly be buying these in the next grocery shop .. Super YUMMY! Thanks of letting us try them .. much appreciated in our household!
Mautopia - 2:33 PM on Mon-12-Sep-2011 reply | message
You know... I haven't brought cookie mixes for the longest time - simply because I believed they were poor quality and it was easier to make nice ones myself. How wrong was I? I work two jobs for three days of the week, as well as being a mum, wife and super hero so life is hectic chaos day in and day out... Last Monday evening we were expecting unexpected visitors and I thought the bikkies would be a nice treat... I have an hour in between jobs so I whipped them up then... i thought it'd take about an hour but was pleasantly surprised to find it only took five minutes plus cooking time AND even better - they were absolutely scrumptious! My son and I loved them! They were delicious and moist - just how home baking should be - and our visitors too. I am definitely stocking up on these for an emergency stash in my cupboard! SUPER AWESOME PRODUCT! Thank you for the opportunity to trial them!
cherrytf - 2:29 PM on Mon-12-Sep-2011 reply | message
This is was soooo easy to make. My 2 kids actually did everything and all I had to do was supervise, handle the oven (i.e., pre-heating, putting the cookie sheets inside and getting them out). And the Milk Chocolate Chunks were yum! My kids shared the cookies with 6 of their cousins and they all enjoyed it. Since my kids would like homebaked cookies more often than I can oblige, I'll certainly start buying these for them to bake on their own. I will, however, still bake oatmeal cookies from scratch, since Betty Crocker's doesn't have that variety -- yet.
mycanvas - 12:54 AM on Mon-12-Sep-2011 reply | message
yummmmm was the first word my little man when he saw the box on Friday when I opened the packet. Its been a hectic week but the fact that these cookies are so easy made fitting a baking session in a doddle. Was impressed with how simple they were to make and daniel loved mixing the dough (and tasting at the same time). made about 18 I think but there were a few fatter than others and was pleasantly surprised to see that there were plenty of m&m s ... I do hate it when companies skrimp on the decorations so big tick for betty crockers on that front. overall would defo buy these again as they are so handy to have in the pantry for activities with mr 2 and to throw together when you need to conjure up some home baking in a flash ..thanks for the opportunity
angelnshan - 10:39 PM on Sun-11-Sep-2011 reply | message
yum yum yum! great if you want to bake with the kids but personally i prefer a recipie where you add everything in 1 bowl mix and place on tray adding the m&ms lastly dragged these cookies out a tad but still very tasty thanks betty crocker :)
Shelz69 - 5:32 PM on Sun-11-Sep-2011 reply | message
I have already comment on here about how delicious these milk chocolate chunk cookies were and the kids loved them. My 3 year old has asked for these everyday since, however I wanted to add an addition. I did find that my kids went absoultely hyper after having these biscuits and not in a good way. I only have them one biscuit and it seemed to affect them. It may have been something else but it was over two days, one biscuit and my three old was just running and jumping all day long. I would def. not give these to my children again, unless they had something that had less sugar or chocolate in it. So for now it will be for adults only (which I'm not complaining about as they were delcious but I will not be giving these to my children again.

I made the Rainbow bickies today. This is the first time I have tried them and had not tried them before as I thought I was being 'lazy'. They were nice and easy to make using only one bowl and a spoon, so the clean up was very quick! The packet said I would make 24 but I only got about 16 - maybe I made them too big or ate too much of the yummy raw dough!!?? I was impressed with how many M&Ms there were having some extra to find a space for on the bickies and some broken ones to eat! My partner said they tasted "fantastic" after he spied them cooling on the rack. I will buy a box in the next shop to keep in the pantry for an emergency when I need to whip up some bickies in a hurry. Thank you.

We got to trial the choc chunk cookies & thought they were totally awesome!! My little 7yr old wanted to help me make them & they were so quick & easy to make that she did it all by herself!!! Its a pitty she wasn't so eager on the clean up, but never mind it kept her busy for a while....her & her friends had no trouble eating them either. I was really surprised how much choc chunks were in them, definitely will be buying some more Betty Crocker mixes to have on stand by in the pantry for those un expected little guests.....& the big kids might even get one too if they are extremely quick.....well done Kidspot for running this trial & also Betty Crocker for a topnotch product...thanks

Well cookies are baked....and thank goodness they had plenty of mini m and m's! My son wanted to try one and put one on lol! Still there were plenty to make them look great and then tasting them later ...well that was great too. So easy to make and even managed to talk to a friend on the phone while mixing the dough! Now the drama is trying to convince the kids that they don't have to eat them all at once!

I would recommend to my friends/family and yes we will buy again now I know how yummy they are. We love to bake so we will continue to bake from scratch it is fun one of my hobbies is baking but as I said below I would bake when I am in a rush or tired :)

YAY my daughter enjoyed making her rainbow cookies!!! She wants to make more.
I forgot to take a photo once they were done :(
Packaging is awesome the kiddies see what they are about to make and it makes them excited. It was easy for my daughter (3yrs) to add the ingredients and mix on her own. I just finished it off and I also added a little water because it was a little dry. They smelt amazing while baking and tasted great!!! Alessandra hubby and myself loved them. Would def by again, we love to bake but would love to keep a packet in my cupboard for when I have to quickly whip something up or for when I am tired but baby girl would like to bake, peeeerfect. So happy we got to trial that one, thanks a bunch my girl loves RAINBOW COOKIES!! Fun and easy baking, awesome!

Yum!Yum! These cookies were so good,we got the rainbow cookie mix,They were very simple to make,even miss 2 enjoyed helping put the m&ms on.We did find the mixture a little dry to combine so just added a tiny bit of extra butter.
Would i buy again or recommend? I would buy these as a treat and would recommend to those that feel they can't make biscuits as these was so simple.
If first time tried,Yep was first time tried,haven't bought them before as I was never sure of them,so thank you for the chance to trial.
Will i ever make my own cookies again?Yes because I love knowing I've created something from scratch,but would get these if i was in a hurry and needed something for a bring the plate do.
Many many thanks Kidspot and Betty Crocker for the chance to trial these! : ) : )

We got to try the choc chunk cookies, the pcket really appealed to the kids as soon as they seen them they wanted to whip them up right away! The instructions were very easy to follow and all you needed was egg and butter, it took very little time, I was very impressed! to top it all of they were delicious and vanished very quickly!! Thanks for the chance to review these, might have to try the rainbow ones next time!

milk chocolate chunk cookies - DELISH!!! my 3 (almost 4) year old daughter couldnt wait to get her baking mitts on. easy instructions that even me the non-baker could follow with ease and i love that its just egg and butter we add and not a million other things (okay so i exagerate but you all know what i mean lol) that we have to buy to make the finished product! i never quite know when to take cookies out - always either too late they are too crispy or too early and they are doughy but i found that even if you take out too early the doughyness was quite nice or maybe thats just me! other than the taste, for me the important thing is time spent with my baby doing some fun (edible is bonus!) and that it's easy to follow and easy to action making less stress in the kitchen - happy wife happy life i think they say! hehe

Wow, so tasty, just like you'd expect to get at a cafe. Ruby and I whipped them up (she usually looses patience somewhere in the middle of beginning to end when it comes to baking), she thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a bit of a nibble before they went in the oven and cooked them for about 12-13 minutes so they were a little undercooked and chewy. The whole family loved them and we were pleased with the results. I'm keen on trying the chocolate chunk cookies next - I'm sure the the whole family are keen too :)

My two daughters and I have just finished making the Rainbow Cookies and there are definately not many left, so their Dad is lucky I've put a few aside for him. My 18 month old son also enjoyed the ones I made with sultanas instead of the M & M's. Both have asked if we could try the other sorts of cookies.

We made the Rainbow Cookies yesterday, yum. They are sooooooo easy to make. It just had two packets, one with the mix and one with the mini m and m's. I found that my dough was a little dry after I had mixed everything up so I just added a little bit of water and they were fine. It was fun poking the m and m's into the dough and making different patterns, girls had a ball. Then in the oven they went. One of my daughters friends came to play after kindy/school which was unexpected but the Rainbow Cookies went down a treat. The kids loved them. I had made them a bit chewy as my husband loves cookies this way. Even he loved them. Thank you so much. We would buy these again, nice and easy and gives a bit of variety to my home baking. Might have to try the Chocolate Chunk ones too.

We had so much fun this morning making our Rainbow Cookies, my son made them himself and has already asked me to buy some more, it's already on my shopping list. He even wrapped up one for his Nana! They are so yummy, we can't stop eating them, not sure if Dad will get any by the time he gets home tonight. But we'll make some more in the weekend, we are hooked. Thanks so much for these wonderful cookies.

Oh my gosh YUUUMMMM! We got the choc chunk cookies to try and they were def some of the best cookies ive ever tasted! they nearly never made it to the oven as I got started on eating the dough and had a hard time stopping! haha But luckily my hubby came out and stopped me so in the oven they went and they were even tastier once they were cooked! They were even easier to make than I was expecting, im pretty sure even my husband could make them! haha

We had the Milk chocolate chunk cookies to make. They were very easy to make and I found they made more than what the packet made. I had spent the weekend in hospital with my daughter and when we arrived home no one had the energy to go grocery shopping and we were enjoying all being in the same room for the first time in days, I then remembered the box of cookies I had to try. They were perfect enjoyed by all quick and easy. I will definately have them in the cupboard in the future. The only thing I would say is that I cooked them for less than the time on the box and they were well done. All in all yummy, easy and will buy

Today was finally coffee group day so I made these up this morning so that they were nice and fresh!!!! I am not the best at making desserts/sweet treats so I was hoping this would be easy and it certainly was!!!!!
There is only one bag inside with the chocolate chips already in there as well so all I had to do was add the butter, egg, mix up and then bake!!!! Too easy!!!
I took them out at 13 minutes as I wanted chewy cookies and these ended up being just right so don't leave them in too long if that's how you like your cookies!!
They do say that these can be stored for up to 3 days however after the coffee group and then a couple that I ate beforehand (I had to test them!!!) plus saving a couple for my partner to have (he would never forgive me if they were all gone!!) these cookies will not last out the day!!!!!
This is a fantastic, no fuss, no stress product that gives an almost guaranteed result (I guess you can still overcook them??!!). I would definitely buy again, especailly for another coffee group or for when my 9 month old is a bit older so she can help with the baking!! I haven't ever bought Betty Crocker products before because I didn't know how they would end up tasting but am very happy with the result! Might even give me the confidence to bake my own cookies (one day!!)!!

We got the Milk Chocolate Chunk biscuits to try. Lots of fun for my wee girl to help me mix them up with her hands, I'm surprised we actually got any cookies left to back, lol. They spread out a lot on the trays so next time I will make my servings a bit smaller lol. For someone like me who is baking challenged these are amazing, easy to mix, you can't make a mistake & they taste so YUMMY! I took them to work as I didn't want my wee girl having too many & everyone loved them, and said how clever I was ;-P I will be buying these again and then I can be a baking Mum too. Thanks for letting us trial them.

Coming home today from daycare on a dreary afternoon and being able to whip up a batch of Milk Chocolate Chunk Cookies has been one of this week's highlights for my son and I! We went from the mudpit to the mixing bowl and he loved helping me mix in the egg and butter - easy as! We enjoyed them with a glass of milk for afternoon tea and I admit the rest are now calling me from their container. I've not bought pre-mixed biscuits before because I didn't trust the quanities/recipe, but now that I've tried this I think we'll definitely be doing this as a family treat/activity every now and then. Delicious!

We trialled the Milk Chocolate Chunk Cookies and they were great - didn't take long for us to make and didn't take long to bake either which was great as my daughter was impatiently watching them and waiting for them to be ready. Lots of chocolate chunks and they tasted great :-) Going to go and buy the rainbow ones to try next.

We trialled the Milk Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Wow, they are scrummy! So easy to make, the kids had a great time getting their fingers in the cookie dough. Lots of chocolate chips in there, and all we had to do was add the butter and an egg. Very easy! I would keep a packet in the cupboard for quick & easy baking, and when I need something fun to put in the kids lunchboxes. Went down well with hubby too!

OMG!!! Made the Milk Chocolate Chunk Cookies! Yummmmmy!! Really easy to make, my daughters found it a breeze. Love the tip at the back of the box too. We took them out of the oven even though they looked like they weren't done and they were perfect! The mixture says it makes 15 but we made 22 decent sized biscuits! Will definately Buy! It's perfect for when your kids want to bake and creates minimal mess! Even better you get a delicious treat! Thanks kidspot and Betty Crocker

wrote yesterday, left it while trying to figure out how to put photos on - came back and pushed post comment - didn't appear... so here I go again. I got Miss 12 to make them - really good for her to have independence and I could trust that measurements would be fine with only 1 egg and butter to add. The butter could have been softer to make the mixing easier other than that not a problem. She made a tray of normal sized biscuits and a tray of smaller sized ones. the smaller ones cooked a lot quicker than I expected so next time I will watch them more closely. The came out of the oven and half were gone before I could take a photo! They are moreish and I would make them again. It is a good standby product in the cupboard for quick baking or school holiday activity.

We received the rainbow M%M's which we made today. Mister 2 was very interested in it all - including the raw dough and the M&Ms! Fairly simple to make and accurate times given for the cooking. I thought they tasted OK - and I have just had all out war from the kids as I said no more biscuits before tea (so they obviously like them!). One box does not make enough for us (only one tray of 24 biscuits), and I normally make 2-3 trays at a time. I will stick to homemade for now - but will consider buying these when I go back to work.

Well, I checked my mailbox and found •Betty Crocker™ Milk chocolate chunk cookies mix, My 7 year old and I made these cookies, we made 16 good sized cookies which was a decent ammount I thought. the problem is that they are just too good, with myself, my husband and miss 7 they were all gone within 20 minutes!!!! (and miss 7 only had 2!!!) I would definately recommend them tho, super easy to make and super yummy!!! definately good for a treat!!

Thanks for picking us to trial the cookies, we had the chocolate chunk cookies. Loved how simple it was to make and that it wasnt many dishes to clean up afterwards also made it easy to do with my daughter , we had to make it while my husband was at work because he kept asking if we could just eat the cookie dough haha. My oven was a bit hot I think as we did them for 8 minutes and they were pretty golden so think about 5 minutes would have been enough for my oven. Will definatly buy them again and even though they were golden they still tasted great. Mads loved helping and loved eating them even more haha. Will be trying the recipe on the back for a treat too yum! thanks again.

My children (3 & 4) and I had a fun time making the Chocolate chunk cookies. I think one of the best things about them is that they can be made all in one bowl with little preparation making less work cleaning up and less time for any boredom to set in for smaller children. My boys did need some help in forming the dough but had fun rolling balls and squishing them. The results are some yummy tasting cookies. I would buy again for them to make.

we got the rainbow bickies and as sad as it is to admit, i did stuff these up! all i had to do was add 1 egg and some butter. easy right? i didn't measure the butter just took a guess - when will i learn, it was forming properly so i added more butter, still not working, maybe another egg will help? magic! unfortunatley the bickies tasted very buttery, funny that, and were not taking with us to a 5th birthday party, but they are still good enough for us here at home - we're not fussy. thanks for the trial, i think i had better invest in some scales!

Well my baking story was not such a success. We got the Rainbow ones, the kids were so excited. I cooked them, and I dont usually bake, so that might be the first problem. It said to make 24 cookies, I made just over twelve, a bit big perhaps? And I used one of our free range eggs froom home, a bit bigger than the regular supermarket size perhaps? anyway, the mix turned out quite wet, but in the oven they went. They went flat and spread out, making quite big but flat cookies. I guess from the other reviews it is probalby what I did wrong not the Betty Crocker mix that failed <sigh>

We baked our cookies this afternoon! We recieved the Betty Crocker Chocolate Chunk Cookies and they are devine!
Only requiring an egg & some butter and the butter amount was listed in grams & cups-handy seeing as I don't have kitchen scales!
My daughter normally gets a bit bored & impatient when we're baking but today she was having a great time! She did pretty much everything herself & only a few teeny eggshells needed picked out ;)
I expected the chocolate chips to be in a separate bag for some reason but they were included in the mix-great! It was all ready to go!
We made our cookies smaller, to the variation on the box, instead of 15 regular cookies we made 24 small ones-well, 23 actually as we must have made them a bit big! But was good making them smaller as Miss Almost 5 was able to easily get teaspoons full (she has trouble with the bigger spoon & get frustrated) to place on the tray. They are also a good size for her...though her Dad & I may feel worse for eating more of them haha (I'm up to 5...ooops!)
I used baking paper on the trays so the only dishes were a bowl, measuring cup, knife & the two spoons we used. Loved that.
We also really liked the suggestion on the back to serve them as an ice-cream sandwich! What a fantastic idea! Was such a nice treat & I'm glad we did baking on this lovely sunny day so we could enjoy them in the sun with ice-cream mooshed between the cookies, covered with rainbow sprinkles!
They are, soft & moist & delicious & we have added them & the rainbow ones to our grocery list as the price isn't too bad, especially by the time you buy the chocolate (there's alot of chocolate in these!) and I like that I got to spend that special time with my daughter today & we both had fun :) They would be easy to whip up if unexpected guests turned up too.
Thankyou Kidspot & Betty Crocker :) Everyone buy these!

Well it sounds like the cookie mixes are a success. I wanted to write my review asap but with a busy weekend it just didn't happen, and I wanted to include the photos too.

We arrived home on Friday to a parcel on the doorstep we opened up the parcel and to mine and Caitlyn's delight it was the Betty Crocker Rainbow Cookies (with M&M’s) , we couldn't wait and with lunchtime around the corner I decided it would be a nice treat with lunch. We got straight into cooking hands washed, aprons on and GO,... I have never used a packet recipe before or made biscuits so it was all very exciting. We measured the butter, softened it, added the egg and Caitlyn poured the mixture (powder) in. Then mix mix mix. This was fantastic Caitlyn (Almost 2) could do all herself with a little guidance from me. I loved that she could have such an active role in the cookie making. She also did a bit of taste testing to ensure she had made it right.

It was easy to follow the instructions although we did have to remix the dough as it was a bit crumbly so maybe an added instruction would be good (for those beginner cookie makers). We added the M & M's onto the cookies (with some being taste tested) was impressed by the amount of M&M's we had some left over. Although some got less as I was firing them on before the chocolate monster got them. We also tried the biscuits on a stick like the box suggested (we had some in the cupboard) and Little Miss liked the biscuits on the stick the most..

Cooking time was super fast and perfect timing. Then we enjoyed them. I seriously didn't think Hubby was going to get to try any biscuits but he did. We even got to share them with guests as my Mum, sister and nephew came over.

Caitlyn was so proud and she kept saying I a good cook. She was I am so proud of her and was glad she loved this experience, I just we got more than one box to trail because little Miss loved so much. I would definitely look into purchasing some mixes for emergency pop overs and as a cooking experience for little Miss . Oh yeah I forgot to mention it was a horrible rainy day so perfect indoor activity to do together.

What an awesome package to receive. My 2.8mth old daughter was so excited when we received it on Friday but had visitors so instead she made it with her dad on Saturday while I relaxed on the couch. Now if he can make them anyone can - Keana loved mixing the dough and her job was to squash the biscuits down once Brynn had placed on the tray. Then they both inserted the M&M's. So easy to make and so tasty as well!!! They made the biscuits a little to big for the tray so made two batches the first purerly with the M&M's and the second also had chocolate chips inserted and they tasted great also. Much easier to make this way then from scratch.

seriously amazing! I made my cookies last night, they were so yummy that I had hubby ripping them off the tray still too hot that he had to juggle them! the box shows them with so many chocolate chips and I seriously thought it wouldn't have that many (as boxes often mislead) but when you are mixing it you realise that there REALLY is that many choc chips, they are so good .. I am eating on right now! they are so simple to make and I would defiantly buy them, I am going to give the rainbow ones a go and see that they are like. thanks so much kidspot, I would never have purchased these from the grocery store without the trail! :)

My daughter and I made the Betty Crocker chocolate cookies on the weekend - super easy to make and super yummy! I was really surprised at how little time they took to prepare. We made 21 cookies all up. They had a lovely texture, firm on the bottoms and slightly chewy. One thing I was really surprised at was the amount of chocolate drops - and they were really tasty! Theses cookies were fun and easy to make - I even think my husband to make them! Would definatley look at purchasing in my next grocery shop :o)

hello! my 6 yr old daughter and i baked the cookies last weekend and i should say,
it was really easy. i did the measuring and mixing and my daughter did the cookie shaping and putting exactly 7 m&ms on each cookie. we made 26 cookies, instead of 24 so there were much to munch. the cooking time varied. the 1st batch was perfect for me which had little crunch on the side and chewy middle part. the 2nd batch turned out a little brown, which is good if you want hard cookies. my not-so-negative comment is that the cookies became big during baking so it stick with the
other cookies. we should have placed them far apart. we had to watch it bake bec it easily turns brown after the 10 mins baking time. it was just too sweet for me but the kids love it! My daughter keeps on bragging that she baked the cookies by herself and even suggested that we should do it again and make different shapes. will that work?
overall, it was easy! definitely will recommend it to others who likes simple, easy and quick cookie baking.
thanks again for choosing us to sample the product!

YUM! We received the Betty Crocker Choc Chunk cookies. We made these over the weekend so I have 2 little helpers :) I found these really easy to make and were great when you have the kids helping as not too much mess can be made. We made 19 cookies out of this, all medium size, perfect for lunch boxes or afternoon teas. Really loved how once cooked they had a nice firm bottom but were still slightly chewy and not dry at all. These were a hit with the whole family! I think next shop I will try out another type. Was such a great trial, thanks for this :)

I thought the Betty Crocker mix was absolutely great. My four year old basically made them herself, getting her little hands into it and kneading it. I involved my two year old as well for decorating and used ice block sticks too – a real hit! They tasted fantastic and the kids were so proud of themselves. We even wrapped some of them up and gave them to Grandpa for Fathers Day. I would actually recommend giving them as a gift too, so yes I will definitely buy them again. Any child would love to get that pack.
As my husband leaves my kitchen in a very bad mess when he bakes, it would be a great alternative for him too.
Thanks for letting us trial them.

I think ill start my review with one work 'YUMMY' my betty crocker rainbow cookies arrived early on Friday morning and I was so excited that within 40 minutes I had baked, cleared the dishes and was sitting down to enjoy one of many cookies.
I got all the ingredients that I needed, 3 things into a bowl and mixed how easy is that for cookies. I used my hands to make sure everything was mixed well and of course tasted a bit of the raw cookie mix and it was very sweet and scrummy. Rolled all my cookies out and spread them on the tray, the most fiddly thing was putting all the mini m&ms on top I put 6 - 7 on each cookie and even managed to eat a few and didnt run out. I have a few broken m&ms but every last one was used up. Putting the cookies into the oven I set the timer for 13 minutes scared I was going to over coo them. I took them out of the oven after 13 minutes of baking and they were lightly golden and looked so yummy I couldnt wait until they cooled slightly to eat. I followed the instructions on the back and it was so simple and easy, I made 24 small cookies which is a tablespoon as the recipes said. I often buy the betty crocker cake mixes if I'm short on time and these cookies are another excellent product by Betty Crocker. I agree with the note on the box and they do taste best fresh on the same day, although if you do have any left over the next day they still taste nice. The cookies were soft when I took them out of the oven but they did firm up once they cooled down so you'd have to make sure you didnt leave them in the oven for to long.
A great product, easy for adults and kids alike make. Highly recommended and ill definately be buying and recommending to others. They are almost and essential item to have in the pantry for when you have unexpected visitors coming round and want something yummy to make with no fuss and no mess. Next time Im going to try the recipe suggestion of rainbow cookie lollypops, sure they would be a hit for a kids birthday party.
The cookies were a yummy sweet cookie similar to the taste of a choco chip cookie without the chocolate chips of course. The m&ms on top made gave them a yummy chocolate taste and crunch for the cookie.
Others that ate my cookies were impressed as well with the taste.

Thank you for choosing my family to review the Betty Crocker milk chocolate chunk cookies. We received the mixture on Friday and we made them up on Saturday morning for morning tea. This the second time we have made these cookies, they didn't turn out exactly the same cording to the kids, hard to please some males I thought they where OK ! It's so easy to make only having to add butter and a egg and less mess with the kids helping. The mixture said it makes 24 small we got 22. I don't normally buy packet mixers because of the cost. But if I added up all the baking I have done that has only every seen the inside of a waste disposal then the cost is irrelevant at least you know these turn out, specially if you need to take a plate somewhere. The only thing is that in the mixer we found two pieces of mixer that had gone hard which was a shame. So all in all they turned out great once I had finished taking a photo of the biscuits, hands came in from every direction and they were gone ! So yes Betty Crocker you got the seal of approval from my three sons now I have to buy the rainbow ones on pay day.

Thanks Betty Crocker and Kidspot for picking us to trial. We had been away for a few days and arrived home tonight to find the e-mail advising we'd been picked and the package on the back door step. Thanks ever so much! We'll get onto baking them asap. Nom nom nom!!

Have to say that the Betty Crocker Rainbow Cookies is totally so easy to make, am very happy that I didn't make a mess in my kitchen and less dishes to wash, after having a baby cleaning the kitchen after baking puts me off because of too many things to wash and clean but with Betty Crocker Cookie mix, unbelievable but it's true, it's easy and so simple to make and before you know it your done with the preparation, before am not a fan of ready mixes when it comes to baking as my first time experience with the other brand, my finished product looks so different with the one that is advertised on the box, so after that no more ready mixes for me, that is when I learned to bake from scratch but it's a bit tiring after doing the baking then cleaning's next....but I really love to bake, thank you again for giving me the opportunity to try the Betty Crocker Rainbow Cookies, now I know what brand to pick at the grocery for easy baking but yummy sweet treats, have to confess it didn't last the next day hehehe... okies here are my other comments: with regards to packaging - very attractive to the consumer eyes, as the rainbow cookies are so mouth-watering, your finished product will definitely look like the one's on the box, with regards to baking procedure; it's simple and direct to the point, totally not complicated to follow so even kids can do it but of course with the adult supervision and with regards to the finished product; oh wow what can I say, so yummy..yummy..yummy especially with m&m minis on top! I agree with the product statement that "Betty Crocker Rainbow Cookies with M&M Minis are Sweet delicious sugar cookies topped with M&M MINI's. Sure to impress the kids, not only do these cookies taste great they are also fun for the kids to help make too." And YES I will absolutely buy this product again and will also recommend to friends, these cookies are great to eat at any time of the day, will definitely bake my own cookies again and also these cookies can be a nice gift to friends, family and in laws. I put some photos of my cookies, before and after and btw I used cookie cutter just to add more fun.... Happy Baking!!!!

Thank you kidspot and Betty Crocker for the lovely Rainbow cookies mixes. Believe it or not, it was first ever for me to bake cookies in my life. (My 4yo girl made a few cookies from her pre-school. ) I haven't been bothered to make cookies at home only because I am too busy and too lazy doing other unnecessary cooking. I would rather go out to buy cookies outside. However my daughter is very into baking and I thought I'd have a go.
First of all, I thought it won't work without any sort of liquid e.g. milk or water. But it worked out perfect amount using what it listed as butter and egg. In fact we don’t use butter at home, so I just used the same amount of the margarine, but it turned out to be very good too. So quick to make the whole dough but it says 24 small cookies, but I could not be bothered to make every little 24 cookies, so my daughter and I made rather large cookies to fit into one tray. However I didn’t know it was going to expand!!! ***I think the instruction should include the warning that it will expand a little.*** Mines were nearly over the edge of the baking tray because it all expanded and all joined up each other.
Also my brand new oven just needed 13 minutes rather than 15 minutes. I know the instruction says 13-15min, but it was my mistake. I quickly pulled it out when I smelled the early burning at 15 minutes. You can tell it was really my first time to bake!
But in the end the taste test passed with lots of ticks!! Although it was slightly burnt and all joined like a huge one piece cookie due to expansion, the taste was good! My daughter was also very excited about the extra M+Ms that she was picking and eating.
Thank you so much for the lovely experience, and I am going to buy it again to try to make perfect cookies next time. Definitely recommend to my other friends.

These were so easy to prepare, I used margarine instead of butter as it isn't in our budget, my little girl had fun putting the m & ms on top of the cookies (plus a few in her mouth). I made bigger ones then the package suggested and they turned out to be gorgeous and chewy, like the ones that you get at subway.

If my budget allows it one shopping day I will definately get another packet:)

Just added the photos - the giant cookie will make a nice gift wrapped up in cellophane for Dad ( and this idea could be used as gifts for other people actually, or our school fair coming up!) and the batch of cookies. The ones on the top rack got brown faster than the other rack.

Thank you Betty Crocker and Kidspot!! We recieved some Rainbow cookies on Friday, and the kids were so excited!! Despite many please, we didn't make them that night, but made them early the next morning. We have tried Betty Crocker cakes before ( which are yum!) but haven't tried the cookies. I guess because usually if I'm using a packet mix, I use it for a special occasion, or because it's super quick, and I'm not a fan of rolling a lot of cookies!

But with the kids, it was easy and they enjoyed it very much. They are 4 and 6 and with the pictures on the back were able to make the cookies themselves. They had a lot of fun sticking the M&M's on, it various patterns, and had the idea of making a giant cookie for Dad for Father's day, which turned out really well. My only issue was that it said 13-15 minutes to bake, so I set the timer for 11 minutes, but by then the cookies were already a bit too brown and very crunchy, but we would just be aware of that next time, and the kids still love them. Would buy them again for a rainy day activity or school holidays.

Thank you Betty Crocker and Kidspot, Our Choc Chunk cookie mix arrived yesterday and with morning tea guests arriving for Saturday morning tea the kids and I had the perfect opportunity to use the mix... What fun we had... Quick and easy, tho cookie dough mix is best stirred by Mum, the cookies were a lovely texture and we managed 14 decent sized cookies from our batch. The kids Loved licking the spoon of the left over cookie dough and YUM they were a delicious success!! My 2 year old was thrilled to announce she found chocolate hiding in her cookie! ;-) We will be making these again.

Thanks so much for letting us try the Betty crocker Rainbow Cookies they were so good and the kids had so much fun making themThe instructions on the box are very easy to under stand so that was good. They did not take that long to make and there was no mess We did not get all the m&ms in the cookies becauses the kids keeped eating them but they still taste good. They now want me to buy the Betty crocker milk chocolate chunk cookies.They are so good to make if you are in a hurry . thanks again for letting us try them

Our Milk chocolate chunk cookie mix arrived yesterday. My kids (6.5 and soon to be 3) made the cookies themselves with a little supervision from me, so absolutely very easy to make with no mess at all!! We could hardly wait for them to cool down!! They came out perfect, uniform sizing, just delicious, lots of chocolate bits and a nice chewy texture. Will definitely buy these again and recommend them to others. I've tried many Betty Crocker muffin mixes before, but not a cookie mix as I've been making my own cookies or buying cookies. I will continue to make my own cookies, but will henceforth always have a pack of these in the pantry when a quick batch of yummy cookies is required and they will also be part of a birthday party spread from now on, especially since my son can make them himself!
5/5 from me for a quick and easy way of whipping up a delicious batch of cookies! You definitely can't go wrong with them! Thanks Kidspot & Betty Crocker :)

Woohoo my first review. Our package arrived yesterday but we waited until today to do some baking. We got the Betty Crocker Rainbow Cookies. I have not made boxed cookies before and i'm not at all successful in the cookie making department. These were easy and quick to make. There were plenty of m&ms to go on the cookies, and the cookie dough goes a long way. They were fantastic!! My kids loved them and they were all so excited when they came out of the oven. The smell that the the cookies made through the house was amazing and the cookies themselves tasted yummy. I would definately buy this product again and i will be recommending it to my friends and family. It was so easy and satisfying. I have not been able to make my own cookies so these will probably be the way i will be making cookies in the future.

Ours arrived yesterday just before I was about to pop down to the supermarket and pick something up for afternoon tea as a friend and her 3 kids were popping by after school. I am a little pedantic about what my kids eat so I read the ingredients on the packet before I made them up (Milk chocolate chunk cookies)- nothing artificial with the only"number" for a Sodium Bicarbinate which is safe in food use! Super easy to make up and they made the house smell absolutely devine. Suffice to say that the kids were all excited when I bought the biscuits out for them to eat and it wasn't long before they were asking for seconds. Myself and my friend also tasted them and they were delicious. We had to make sure that there was one left for hubby when he got home and he liked them too. I would definitely recommend these to friends/family and will be buying them again.
emjay - 8:52 PM on Fri-2-Sep-2011 reply | message
Yay, ours arrived this morning, we got the rainbow cookies and we had a betty crocker baking morning! yesterday I had bought the choc swirl cake and vanilla frosting to try today after those reviews (and since it is daddy's birthday tomorrow) so it was a nice surprise to find we had been picked for the trial and have them arrive this morning too!
The cookies were very easy to make, miss 3 did nearly everything, until the stiring got a bit hard for her, but then she was right into the dough at the end with her hands to make it into a nice smooth mix and then rolling out the balls for the cookies. it was fun watching her learn how to roll balls rather than sausages! i then left her to it as she pushed all the m&m's into the biscuits. she did a very good job and most had a good covering so she got to eat the last few herself :)
Dont know if it was my perfect cooking or the magic cookies but they came out of the oven Beautiful! crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle, YUM. they are definately not an only 1 biscuit!
the box says makes 24 small biscuits but we got 23 large biscuits! they spread a long way on the tray so definatly good value.
The taste is great, and as good as my nana's special recipe if not actually better than other home made cookies.
To answer the questions in the letter:
would i buy again or recommend? YES
If first time tried, why? I have always been a biscuit and cake maker from scratch, i have done muffins and cupcakes from boxes (including betty crocker varieties - my fav is the choc caramel muffin) but haven't done the boxed biscuits.
will i ever make my own cookies again? Yes but will definately buy these again, not only when a quick batch are required, but for the yum specific taste.

Thanks for picking me for the cookie trial, received the rainbow cookies this afternoon and like edrendle commented, my daughter also wanted to bake around 2pm and because it was so easy and mess free, we were able to bake in no time before picking up my boys from school. My 3 1/2 year old daughter loved that she could participate in putting the chocolate on top of the cookies and I loved that I didn't have to worry about her making a mess : ). It was a win-win situation! I decided to pack some cookies away to take for my boys after school as a treat as they ran cross country earlier today so it was a perfect reward for doing well. They were pleasantly surprised and shared with all there friends, needless to say they were gone in seconds and my kids LOVED them. I had to taste them as well and they were dee-lish! Taste better than made from scratch and without the mess. Thankyou Betty Crockers, if I'm ever in a rush and want the taste of home baked goodies, I will definitely be picking you from the supermarket shelf!

This morning we recieved Betty Crockers Milk Chocolate Chunk Cookies in the mail!

When my 4 year old asked me to do baking at 2pm (1 hour before the dredded school pick up) i didnt hesitate knowing i would not have a whole bench full of ingredients to put away! The recipe was easy and required little preparation or clean up.

The only constructive critisism i have is that even with the softened butter the mixture was too crumbly to spoon onto the tray, this was fixed by microwaving slightly, perhaps next time it will be easier to melt the butter first.

As for the taste test DELICIOUS! couldnt have made them better if i did it from scratch myself, thank you Betty Crockers yummy friday afternoon tea!

Miss 6 would love to trail these. She loves baking with me. Her favourite bit about making cookies is rolling the dough and cutting the shapes. Having everything already mixed in the bag with only a few ingredients to add means less to do before she gets to her favourite part (& less mess for mummy to cleanup).

I don't currently make cookies at home. I've tried, but they're either crumbly or too hard. All I end up with is a messy kitchen and a bin full of 'cookies'! I have heaps of cookie recipes, but have become discouraged, so it would be great to try a 'box' cookie mix. I'm sure even I can manage that!
I would make these to share with my family. Actually, if they're nice, I'd have to hide some from my husband or they would disappear to work in his lunch-box.

I have four children and although we try to bake together its hard to find something that is quick enough to hold their attention and is something that they will all eat. I think the Betty Crocker range of cookies would be a great way to make something tasty, quick and without making too much mess.
We would put them in lunches, serve to family and friends when they come to visit.

Yum the milk chocolate chunk ones sound delish!! Though the rainbow ones I'm sure would be right up miss 3's alley and not one I would probably buy without having heard good reviews so looks like this review will be very helpful trial for me even if I don't get selected.

I would love to find a chocolate chip style cookies that are as good as I remember some I used to buy (which are no longer available in NZ as far as I'm aware) they were a pre-prepared one in the a roll of dough that you sliced and put on the baking tray and have yet to find any recipe that can match those!

I would bake them for something fun and easy to do with my family as a treat and if they were good i would bake for family and friends, good kind of thing to have in the cupboard with a baby due in 4 weeks we will no doubt be inundated with visitors and I'm sure no one could hassle me about the pre-packed mix excuse when you have a new baby!

I would make treats for the kids and myself as well as friends and family. I love dropping off treats to friends!

I will have a go at baking most things but I havent found a *really* tasty biscuit recipe yet, I normally use a basic recipe and add extras to it. Also shortbread, I want to be able to make melt-in-your-mouth shortbread.
I am more likely to make Betty Crocker as a treat for my family. Just last weekend I used the Devils Food cake mix for my husbands birthday, it was sooo good!

What baking would you love to be able to make easily at home that you don't currently make?

I'd really like to be able to make my own short-crust pastry for fruit pies etc- I've never given it a go because it all seems a bit complicated with all of this business about having icy cold butter and all of the chilling and rolling- I just cheat and grab mine from the supermarket :(

Would you bake Betty Crocker™ as a treat for yourself and your friends or just for your kids and family?

When our coffee group get together every fortnight we all bring along something tasty to share for morning tea, now that the children are getting a bit older some of the ladies are getting quite creative. I'd no doubt have ten VERY happy toddlers if my daughter and I were to take along a beautiful batch of rainbow cookies!!

Biscuits are so not my forte and I wish they were because EVERYONE likes home cooked cookies. I can bake cakes and slices but biscuits ellude me

Would I cook for friends or family ? Probably both in all honesty if they last long enough..but with a family of 6 they don't last long

I'd like to be able to make custard squares as well, they are so addictive and one thing I haven't tried to make cause they look so hard to make.
I always use the cake mixes for birthday cakes, everyone loves them, bake them in two pans cream in the middle and icing on top, delicious, cant get enough of it. Love baking often give it away to parents and sister cause I couldnt eat it all and for whenever friends come over to visit always good to be able to offer them yummy baked treats with a coffee.

It would be great to have a quick chocolate brownie mix - this is a family favourite in our house but doesnt get made very often as the recipe I have is very involved and needs heaps of different ingredients.

I would love to be able to bake a decent cake! I am really good at muffins and people comment on them but cakes, I don't know what happens, they look great in the oven, then they come out and they sink or they are hard or crumbly, don't think there is a cure for me either :-( If we got picked to trial Betty Crocker cookie mixes we would most likey bake them on a Sunday afternoon for a special afternoon treat with my parents as my Dad is unwell and we like to do fun, inexpensive, treat things with him while we have the chance, and hopefully there would be a couple left over for the school lunchbox for Miss 8 :-)

I haven't baked banana muffins for a long time - despite always ending up with manky old bananas that would be better off in muffins than on the bench - as whenever I make them they rise beautifully in the oven but as soon as I take them out, they deflate to less than the original size!!! I find that so depressing that I've just stopped making them now.
I think we'd probably bake the Betty Crocker™ bikkies for whoever is in the house at the time - if we have visitors then they're welcome to share! :)

I bake Betty Crockers for both the kids and family but also when I need a quick and yummy treat to take for a plate or when having guests.

What baking would you love to be able to make easily at home that you don't currently make?
I wish I could make fancy desserts more often, but they seem so overly indulgent and unneccesary at home and I just can't justify the cost and effort for something that the rest of the household doesn't appreciate as much as I wish they would.

Would you bake Betty Crocker™ as a treat for yourself and your friends or just for your kids and family?
I think I would mostly bake Betty Crocker™ for friends as I know it will be fully appreciated. My family is quite content with the simpler, less exciting things that I make from scratch.

My two kids love both making and eating baking and being 5 and 15 as you can imagine they have stomachs like bottomless pits ! Betty Crocker mixes are great for the kids to have fun with to make ( and great for Mums that want to impress ! ) I've never tried a cookie mix so would love to see how it would turn out, the idea of a quick and easy no fail cookie mix is very appealing to me , who can show me a way of having the baking last longer than one day ....... .

Pick me! I would absolutely love to trial these! I was at a function last night and saw Betty Crocker Rainbow Cookies out on the table. They look like they would be perfect for kids parties, lunchboxes etc. I even asked the host about them and she said they were fantastic, yummy and easy to make! (She failed to mention that they were Bettry Crocker Cookies mind you) I really regret not sampling one. I got distracted and never got another opportunity to get near the table. I have trialed the Betty Crocker Cake mix and absolutely love it! I have even got my mum on to the cake mix so she is buying them as well now. Currently I also have Betty Crocker Frosting in the fridge and its so delicious I eat it as a treat, straight off the spoon. I think I would be easily converted to buying the Cookie mixes aswell, as I have three little kids who are all keen bakers assistants, and I really rated how easy it was to cook with littlies when using the Betty Crocker Cake mix. I would happily trial either product. I am looking for something to add into the lunchboxes and my kids are just getting to the age when I am looking around for interesting food that they might actually want to eat. I'm thinking bake on the weekends with the kids so I have a yummy cookie to add to the lunchboxes, and with 3 kids and a baking eating machine of a husband they would all be gobbled up in no time. Currently I don't bake much at all, I just don't have the time. I make cakes for special occasions, but I want to get into more regular baking. I remember my lunches from when I was a kid and we got one homemade biscuit, and how much I looked forward to this lunchbox delight.

I would love to be involved in this trial, I love baking, and make cakes and biscuits all the time. Ive baked with the betty crocker cakes many times but have never tried the cookies and Im sure my son would love these biscuits too. So in answer to yoru questions:
# What baking would you love to be able to make easily at home that you don't currently make? Really quick biscuits if I know someone is coming over at short notice or as a pick me up for my son when he is grizzling (or for me..)

# Would you bake Betty Crocker™ as a treat for yourself and your friends or just for your kids and family? Both! Ive made the cakes for coffee groups, birthday cakes, and when I feel like something chocolatey. My son Alex loves these cakes too. Id love to trial the biscuits, it would make life so much easier when I need to get some something made quickly, the one with pebbles looks particularly appealing (as my son loves pebbles/smarties..its his current favorite thing..)

I would love to give these cookies a go. What baking would you love to be able to make easily at home that you don't currently make? - not a lot at the moment, don't have the time as Mr 1 has decided to go down to 1 sleep a day so find I spend most of his sleep time catching up on housework and when I decide to look in my baking book his radar works and he wakes up. Would you bake Betty Crocker™ as a treat for yourself and your friends or just for your kids and family? - I would have them as a treat for everyone. They would make a quick and easy plate to take to coffee group and as I haven't met anyone who doesn't like cookies with chocolate in them I'm sure they'll be a hit with the other mums.

I recently trialed the Betty Crocker Cake Mix and was super impressed with that, so now am a baking mix convert and would love a chance to trial the biscuits too, and would happily share with family and friends.

I would love to spend more time trying out new recipes involving pastry making - it is something I am not confident doing, but never seem to have time to experiment.

Cookies are certainly the thing I would like to make more of but don't as I am often not happy with how they turn out, so these Betty Crocker Cookie Mixes look perfect to fix that problem! I would make these cookies as a treat for myself and my friends, particularly when it is my turn to host Coffee Group, with any leftovers for Hubbie to eat!

I'd love to bake a really nice white chocolate cake where you don't need lots of weird ingredients! lol. Also my sister and best friend were diagnosed with coeliac last year so glute3n free stuff would be awesome! I bake alot and like things like rainbow cookies for the kids but I usually like to make fancier stuff to take for desserts or afternoon tea with my friends. Would love to trial these cookies because sometimes I just can't be bothered baking from scratch. I love having stuff in the cupboard to just throw together like the one step pancakes! I know a simple raspberry slice recipe box would be great! ;-)

I would love to be able to make a Chocolate Gateau cake - one like the bakeries with all the different layers of frosting and fancy decorations on top. I would make the Betty Crocker cookies on a Sunday. That way they're ready for the school lunches and any visitors that may arrive. They also look like they'd be great for kids birthdays.

I can't wait to try these. I just checked out their website and they have a recipe using the rainbow cookie mix (but I'm sure the milk chocolate chunk cookies would work well too) to make a cookies and cream ice cream. I would love to make this to take as a dessert when I go to friends for dinner. I would love to be able to cook something different. I always seem to stick to the same simple recipes.

Since i have never been successful with baking choc chip cookies & have spent more on choc chips for the perfect cookie but always flopped. it's been 6 months now & i have never succeeded, just simply gave up. However this time if i am lucky to receive this trial I will proudly share with my family only so they now there is hope for me & cookies.

My 7 year old son wants to try baking but hasn't got the skills nor the patience of his 9 year old sister! As such, using Betty Crocker will be a good idea to see if he can do it and to start him off.

1) I'd love to be able to bake scones without having to buy butter... tricky, I know! :/ I usually never use butter in my baking (trying to be healthy), so find it annoying having to buy a whole pack of butter when I'd really only use a small amount... but I miss baking scones!!
2) I'd certainly be happy to share the cookies with friends and family, though I'm positive the kids would want to try some not long after they were out of the oven, filling the house with beautiful smells!

I would love to be able to bake simple pies or tarts (eg, fresh fruit mini pies for the kids and beautiful pies for us adults). Currently with a toddler and newborn it takes far too much time to even give it a thought. Betty Crocker would be baked as a - weekly treat to fill the pantry for both family and friends. Our door is always open and people are served what we treat ourselves too.

I currently buy packets of biscuits as I find I don't have the time to bake like I normally used to. When I had two children I used to always have the tins full, but now with the third child and also working I find I do not have the time to keep any tins full so would love the opportunity to try out this easier version with nearly all the ingredients mixed for me. I would love to bake biscuits which taste yummy and share them with my family and take some along to my work for a treat with the team I work with. Biscuits are so much easier to transport and would love to do a review on these please.

We make lots of cupcakes & cakes but would like more savoury or simple mixes that my son can be more involved in helping bake.

I have purchased some of the muffin mixes in the past, I find them good to have in pantry for unexpected visitors, as they are easy & the house soon warms to smells of baking. I would happily buy these again but tend to stick to tried & true so reviewing products is a great way of trying & finding other alternatives.

Would love to try one of these, I love baking and am always keen to give something new a go, and this looks like something I could easily include the kids in helping with the making of them.

Ooh we love to do lots of baking and sometimes when I have to take a plate to some shared meal or girls brigade night etc, I'm really pushed for time or ingredients left in the cupboard! I'd love to make cheesecakes but I just never get around to it. I'd bake with the kids and for the kids but also for extended family, friends / visitors and for the shared lunches and take a plate events.

I'd love top make some of those 3 tiered slices easily at home, Base ,filling & topping by the time ive sorted it all out and made other things i just dont have the will and dedication they deserve.
I would bake Betty Crocker for family and friends. Product wouldnt be so successful if it wasn't good enough to eat!.

We would love to trial these. Most weekends we make peanut butter and Choc Chip cookies, these would be a great change and something new for their lunchbox. Plus its something we can all try :o)

I do a lot of baking with my boys - but this way is sooo much easier. I would love to make carrot muffins at home easily (I never have all the ingredients), and while may baking may start out to be also for gifts, it usually ends up being just for my family :)

I would love to give my son these cookies ... he doesn't seem to like the ones I make from scratch!! :-( I would love to make him more - if he will eat them!!!

I would love to make more biscuits and slices at home. I always seem to be missing an ingredient when I go to make them! These mixes look like a great idea! but haven't tried them yet.
I would bake these as a treat for me and my little girl, and she would love to help me make them!

I would be keen to review this product! Cooking with the kiddies is fun - especially when its this easy :-) Always looking for ways to engage my boy and baking is one he loves! Thanks.

Would love to try these as currently just starting to do the baking thing with my 5 and 9 yr old girls. So this product would make it a lot easier especially with my 5 year old. Also would make it easier for when their friends come over after school as they could all make them and enjoy the finished product all together.

Would love a chance to review these my daughter who is 4 loves to help me bake in the kitchen and this would make it so much eaiser for her to do moslty alone with my help of course :)

I would love to be able to make fudge and toffee successfully - two things I have never been able to conquer and another thing is scones - they always turn out like rocks. Betty Crocker would be both for me and my family and also as a treat for my friends. I have some friends who are fabulous in the kitchen and love visiting as I know there will always be home baking - alas, it is not my forte. These rainbow cookies looks so cute and yummy. I would love the oportunity to trial these - I think it would be a great activity to do with the children I currently look after and my own daughter would love it as well.

What baking would you love to be able to make easily at home that you don't currently make?
Umm - slices such as mint, passionfruit etc - if they came as a Betty Crocker - I would honestly buy them in a heartbeat.

Would you bake Betty Crocker™ as a treat for yourself and your friends or just for your kids and family?
I would bake it regularly as I find them so easy to prepare and they NEVER fail to impress. So bake for everyone is the option I would choose.

Rainbow cookies - yum!
Had so much fun reviewing the betty crocker cake mix and frosting, would love to try these too

I would LOVE to be able to make custard squares at home.

As for who i would share these with? Everyone, baking at home encourages bonding with your children and they love showing everyone what they have done.

I would love to be able to bake slices easily - I find them a bit to tricky with the kids around. I think if I was baking these cookies I would make the chocolate chunk cookies for having with friends but would save the M and M ones for the kids and their friends.

I like the idea of the Betty Crocker mix being fast and able to be whipped up to have warm when friends are in the car on their way for an afternoon cuppa.

oh i love to try Betty Crocker Cookie Mixes, i love baking and whole family loves my sweet treats too, and me and my partner loves to munch cookies along with our coffee but after having a baby i find it so complicated to do the baking, so i think these cookie mixes will save the day, i like to bake cookies for the whole family, to impress my friends and of course to satisfy my sweet tooth also... pls include me... cheers!!!

I would like to make more variety. I love to bake but seem to bake the same things. I love to bake biscuits and cakes and cupcakes. I would like to bake more cupcakes and learn some more party cakes to make :) I would bake Betty Crocker as a treat for our family and our friends. Would be great for taking to playdates as a contribution to the afternoon or morning teas or just as a treat for my daughter to have in her lunch box. Yum

I would love to review this and i love to bake, but i often struggle to find the time to make biscuits, and this is something that my children could help to make :)

Oh i would love to bake biscuits, i have never had much success at them and i hate buying them for the kids. I dont know how many times i have had ONE biscuit baking in the oven because the mix has spread! I would bake Betty Crocker for both my family and friends. Depending on how nice would be if i shared it out equally. A rich cake i would probably save for friends for a coffee visit lol!

Would love to be picked,I bake a lot but sometimes would be nice to have something quick & easy to bake that was different from what I normally bake for the boys

What baking would you love to be able to make easily at home that you don't currently make? I'd definitely like to make treat biscuits rather than plain ones which is what I tend to stick to at present mostly because they are simpler and need less ingredients.
Would you bake Betty Crocker™ as a treat for yourself and your friends or just for your kids and family? I think I'd use them as a treat when I needed to take a plate to share and was running short on time - get the taste of home baking but the convenience of just picking something up from the supermarket...almost!!!
I'm returning to work part-time and I know I'm going to need a few shortcuts up my sleeve but I really don't want to resort to expensive packaged biscuits that are all too easy to eat in one go!!!

I'd love to be a bit more creative with the kids lunchboxes, perhaps go beyond the usual things I make (same old recipes..getting a bit boring). These Betty Crocker biscuit mixes sound quite neat..I am sure the kids would love them. I would probably bake them for use in lunchboxes..but not just for the kids.
lotsakids - 4:36 PM on Sun-14-Aug-2011 reply | message
Yummmmm! Pick me please! i love to bake with my children - nothing taste better than home cooking and the smell of cookies in the oven would be heaven around here! and with 5 children 6 if you count hubby - you are sure to get a wide rage of comments about these cookies - Now as for answers to your questions - who would i make them for, more than likely it would be for my family and all the kids friends that are always here! and as for what do i not make at home and want to - i really want to learn to make cheesecakes and pavola - :O) anyway off to cross my fingers!

oooh, I would love to bake caramel slice at home. Too fiddly for me! I only do baking for my children, however my husband and I do tend to sneakily have some ourselves!
tortie - 4:36 PM on Sun-14-Aug-2011 reply | message
Oh, I love cookies, but don't often bake them - mine always seem to come out wrong! So I'm keen to try these ones - they must be no-fail, right?!

I'd make them for our coffee group, so a bit of a treat for my kids :)
carlee - 4:36 PM on Sun-14-Aug-2011 reply | message
Ooh I would love to try these. I have three small children and work part time, so baking needs to be quick and easy!! I love the other Betty Crocker products too like the frosting...!!!
