(some are a little mangled because Princess Pat was very exuberant in helping me put the candy in)
I am going to come completely clean with this recipe. I used refrigerated dough. But seriously folks, how many of us have received plates of cookies that we KNOW were made from these?! I thought so. And did our families eat them? So did mine. It happens. During the holidays parties and other obligations are numerous, while time and energy are in short supply. These cookies came about because a store had a BOGO free sale and I had a coupon. Two packages for two bucks is too cheap for me to pass up. (Notice how many times I used the word to/two/too in that sentence!!) So, I give you Candy Bar Cookies: store bought cookie dough baked in mini muffin tins with store bought Halloween candy dropped into the middles after baking. Our candies of choice this time were Milk Duds, Baby Ruth, Crunch and Tootsie Rolls.
Candy Bar Cookies
1 package refrigerated cookie dough (pb or choc chip)
1/2 as many small candy bars as you have cookies, cut in half
Place each cookie in a mini muffin tin. Bake 8 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and immediately put a candy half in each cookie. Take them out of the muffin tin so they don't get soggy.
