Cut each candy bar into fourths; push one portion into the center of each ball, completely covering candy with dough. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown and surface cracks. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Tasted like a really good sugar cookie but with a surprise in the middle! Wasn't sure I wanted to gamble on a recipe that wasn't reviewed by many, I am glad I did ~ we even used halloween candy...

These were yummy. I don't think I made the candy small enough prior to covering them with the dough because my cookies were huge! I'll definitely make these again.
