Yummy Recipe!

About a year ago I was given a recipe for some really yummy cookies. They were chocolate with caramel filling, made from pretty easily from cake mix and rolo's. :) As I was eating one of them I was struck with the thought of how yummy a cookie would be if it was filled with a minature reese's cup. So I started experimenting with the recipe.

So far I've made chocolate cookies with minature reeses cups, white cookies with candy cane kisses, and spice cookies with pumpkin spice kisses. With the same yummy results everytime. Basically, if the combination sounds like it will taste good, it will taste good, and this last experiment was yet another success! :)

I chose Red Velvet cake and hersey's hugs. :)

So first you take a box of cake mix and stir in 2 eggs and 1/3 cup of vegetable oil, which turns the cake mix into a thick dough. Then you chill it in the fridge for a bit so it doesn't get gooey in your hands too fast. (Yup you're gonna get to play with it. haha)

Then you unwrap your candy of choice and roll then into balls of dough. This process always brings me back to playing with play dough as a kid, its fun!

You then dip the top in some sugar.

And put them on their trays to cook at 350degrees for approximately 10 minutes. ;)

Then you gobble a few down while they're still warm! (Don't forget some milk!)

Mmmm another success!

Enjoy! And let me know what yummy combinations you come up with. :)
