Sanrio Cookies



Sanrio is a Japanese company that produces kawaii (cute) merchandises aimed for young girls. The most famous character from Sanrio is "Hello Kitty" - I am sure most of you have heard or seen "Hello Kitty" somewhere. Growing up, I loved buying and collecting Sanrio stationary products and accessories, from cute notebooks, stickers, pencil cases, rulers, letter-sets, well, you name it! I still love them, but there's not much choice around here in Germany, just Diddl, Nici and Hello Kitty in a few stores. I was never that fond of "Hello Kitty" anyway. I prefer other characters from Sanrio like "Badzt-Maru" the penguin, "Keroppi" the frog or "Monkichi" the monkey ;). I was inspired to make some cookies using these characters from Sanrio, even though I finally didn't make "Keroppi" because my green food colouring's gone! Anyway, here they are...


"Welcome to my house," said Jacque the bear. "You can also have some Badtz-Maru cookies with milk :)!"

Do you see the character sketches behind the cookies :)?

Which character do you like best?


Chococat the Cat?


Kuririn the Hamster?

Badtz-Maru the Penguin?



Or, Monkichi the Monkey?

I personally like "Kuririn" the Hamster the best, because the Kuririn cookies have the least flaws I think. Anyway, it was a quite fun project with a lot of drawing and painting :)! I used marshmallow fondant to decorate the cookies, click here if you want to see the recipe. I used food colourings to paint the characters and Food marker pens to outline them. I used some sugar sprinkles for the general decoration like the hearts, pink balls and pink glitters on Kuririn's head.


Sugar sprinkles I used.

I made the cookies using Peggy Porschen's recipe from her wonderful book: Simply Spectacular Cakes. Very simple and easy to remember: 200 g butter, 200 g sugar, 400 g flour and 1 egg. That's it!

  1. Aww..so cute they look..My daughter was a fan of hello kitty. Just recently I read that they are going to stop the production of Hello kitty things...maybe kids are getting bored of it

  2. @ Gulmohar - They're going to stop the production of Hello Kitty stuffs? No, I haven't heard about it yet, not that I've been following news from Sanrio. Well, I guess there would be some disappointed people out there, but as I have written in my post above, I am not a Hello Kitty fan, so it's not that bad for me ;).

  13. @ Madin - thanks Madin, I actually like all characters too, but the Kuririn ones look somehow the best to me :).

    @ICook4Fun - I originally just wanted to make Badtz Maru cookies (that's why you can see there are more Badtz Maru cookies than the others) because I like this character very much, but finally ended up making several different other characters for fun :).

    @ Indie Tea - Thank you:). You're right, I think little girls would love such cookies, I would have loved it as well a child, but at that time fondant was not popular yet.

    @ Lisa - You're the second person to say that Badtz Maru the cutest one :). I like his grumpy expression actually...;).

    @ Somewhere in Singapore - I didn't intend to eat them either, those cookies are just a little fun project to 'admire' after the work is done ;), I made another batch for eating :D).

    @ Honey Bee -Thanks, Honey Bee. I am glad you like the cookies.

    @ Xiaolu, Little Inbox, Wenn & Jessica - Thanks for the lovely compliments :)!
