Ok..... you're gonna have to follow me close on this one. I feel like I'm gonna ramble.
Pretty much all the recipes I have posted have several ingredients and take a little time to prepare and bake....
So, I wanted to bake a simple recipe with just a couple of ingredients with a miniature spin on it.
That was my goal when I headed to the store.
This is what I came out with....
TOP 7 reasons this bag ended up in my hands:
1. 3 Musketeers
4. Milky Way
5. it looks like an Easter basket (see me holding handle!)
6. it has a pink bow on it
7. it has the word "mini" printed on it.
Duh... I can't resist any of those things. Not even one.
So I walked out of the store with one item. Easter candy. Oh, also.... Easter is pretty late this year... April 24... know what that means? Like 3 extra weeks of Easter Candy stocked stores... blue, pink, yellow, purple, Peep-y, Cadbury-y, jelly bean-y, chocolate bunny-y stocked shelves!!! (rambling)
I got home with the candy and... and... and... still needed a recipe. Then I remembered I had a roll of Pillsbury sugar cookie dough. Clearly these 2 items could make something sweet. This is very simple and not original. People are stuffing mini candy into all kinds of things these days...
This is just my version of 2 very common ingredients used in a very simple way....
So Sugar Cookie Candy Things :)
You will need:
1 roll of sugar cookie dough
1 package of miniature chocolate candy of your choice
regular muffin tin
mini muffin tin
Another quick ramble.... look at this bowl I got last weekend at an estate sale...
Seriously? Seriously! Cutest, coolest bowl ever... $20! To see more of my Vintage Finds click HERE.
I also decided to display the 2 ingredients in the bowl....
And then the candy... dumb, I know...
But, it's really pretty candy... and miniature.... and, and, and....
Back to the recipe. So easy.
Slice the cookie dough in 1/4 inch slices...
Place the candy in it... and roll into a ball...
Spray muffin tins with non stick spray and place one ball in each cup...
The Twix are too big for the mini muffin tin so I put them in the regular tin along with a couple of Snickers :)
Can you guess which ones are Twix?
Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.
Let cool in pan.
Once cooled, loosen edges with a thin knife and remove from pan.
Some of them will cave in after cooling... bummer.
I seriously thought about pipping some icing and top and adding sprinkles BUT this is supposed to be my token "2 ingredient" recipe.
Icing and sprinkles would have thrown me into the "4 ingredient" category... not cool.
Sooooooo... here they are. They are not gorgeous. They are not covered in beautiful ooze BUT they are easy and they taste yummy.
I mean, it's candy and cookie.... Easter Candy!!! and cookie... it's like good for your soul candy.... duh they taste good.
The photo shoot was not much fun because in my own personal opinion... "2 ingredient" recipes are BORING! Snooze fest...
Baby Candy Filled Cookies...
Regular Candy Filled Cookies....
In the words of my multi-talented musician husband "not every song is a hit but it still needs to go on the record.... you've gotta have some semi-lame stuff in there somewhere"
Soooo... this is my semi-lame recipe.
I hope you enjoy it!
