Chocolate Covered Chocolate Centered Sugar Cookies



These are amazing. A lot of work, but absolutely amazing!!
I have a freezer full of discounted Halloween chocolate that I bought with plans to convert into Christmas baking, and while these are the only things I've created with the Halloween chocolate these will remain the ONLY things I make with the Halloween chocolate - they are that good.

To start off I whipped up a double batch of sugar cookies. I found a really yummy recipe on allrecipes.com, but you can use store bought sugar cookies if you don't feel like making your own.

I used 100 Grand and Butterfinger mini chocolate bars and cut them into halves.
I then wrapped some of the sugar cookie dough around each piece of chocolate and baked.
For the baking time I just followed the instructions on the regular sugar cookie recipe.


Once the sugar cookies had cooked I let them cool and then cut them into quarters.

I then melted some Hershey's Dark Chocolate bars I had also picked up after Halloween and dipped each quartered sugar cookie into the melted chocolate.

Good diet food? I think not.

I let the chocolate sit on wax paper to set and eventually moved them to the fridge, covered in plastic wrap, to set overnight as they weren't getting hard on the counter.
The fridge did the trick and by morning they were the most perfect chocolate covered centered sugar cookie you ever did have!

You had to give an irresistable recipe....that's a ton of work. Sigh. I never try your easy recipes, only the involved ones.
This really does look worth the effort though!

I love stuffing candy into cookies. My favorite is to take Peanut Butter dough or Chocolate Chip dough, and putting it in mini muffin pans.

Bake as normal, then as soon as they come out, shove a piece of chocolate into the center.

We've used Hugs, Kisses, Rolos (OMG, SOOO good in Chocolate Chip Cookies!), Peppermint Kisses, Caramel Kisses, and Peanut Butter cups. They are so delicious, and yet, very easy to make- just make sure to grease the mini muffin pan really well!
