Candy Cookies

I found this recipe on The Pioneer Woman Cooks site and had to share it. I made these cookies for the super bowl party yesterday, and the were so yummy and super easy. My two favorite parts of a recipe!! :)

*Your favorite pre-made cookie dough from the store. I used peanut butter and chocolate chip.
*Any bite size candy. I used Rolos, Hershey's kisses, and mini Reeses Peanut Butter cups. (If you use Rolos, I found that putting them in upside down looks better.)

Preheat oven to 350. Cut the cookie dough into 1 1/2 inch slices, then cut those slices into fourths so you have 4 chunks. Put the chunks into a greased mini muffin tin.Don't forget to grease the pan-- it makes it hard to get the cookies out if you do.
Bake for 6-8 minutes. Do not overbake-- the cookies should just be getting golden. While baking, unwrap the candy.
As soon at the cookies are done, press the candy in the middle of the cookie. VOILA! Yummy dessert! This is a great recipe for kids to help with. By "help" I mean pressing the candy in a little to hard so that you have big finger holes in you cookies and can't take them to the party. (But you get to keep some for yourself! Who cares what they look like?) They also can help eat the candy as you unwrap it. We all were full before we even left the house!

It seriously took so little time, and I got tons of compliments on them. If you want to see pictures and a detailed list of instructions, click here. That will take you to the Pioneer Woman Cooks website.
