These Stuffed Chocolate Cookies are a combination of your favorite chocolate candy and a soft and chewy chocolate cookie. All you have to do is add a Rolo or peanut butter cup in the center of the cookie dough and then roll it into a ball and bake. The hardest part is waiting for the cookies to come out oven.
The sky is the limit with these cookies. If you don’t like Rolos or peanut butter cups, you could try Peppermint Patties, Snickers, Milky Way or really any other kind of candy bar that can be bought and cut into bite size pieces.
These cookies are a great way to get rid of all the Halloween candy your kids have gathered. Every year I get overwhelmed with the piles of candy my kids come home with. I think this year I am going to make a few batches of these babies and then take them out to friends and family. It is a win for everybody!
