1. If you like caramel centers, take
3oz of Kraft Caramels and add
1TB of water, heat until melted. Pour onto a plate so the mix will make a thin,
1/4" layer, place in FREEZER until it is hard. Then, when dough is ready, remove the hardened caramel from the freezer, cut small strips
1/2" wide of the caramel. Cut these into 1/2" bits, place in center of cookie dough and roll -- make certain dough completely surrounds the caramel. It will run out if not completely enclosed. Still good eatin', just not as pretty.
3 oz will do two recipes probably.
2. Get bite size Reese Peanut Butter Cups, cut into 2 pieces, and do same as above.
3. In place of (2), use crunchy peanut butter, using the BACK of a
1/4 t to touch into the peanut butter and get a dab to place on the cookie dough before rolling. Back of spoon allows peanut butter to be wiped onto the dough. Using inside spoon did not work for me. Hard to get out. Try it yourself. Peanut butter has stronger flavor than the Reeses Cups, so only a dab is needed.
4. I like mint chocolate. Found some Mintohs at Kroger. These are for candy making, baking, etc., Light mint flavor. Size of a quarter. Place one of these in the dough in place of other options. I tried the chocolate covered peppermint candy that is foil wrapped. It was TOO strong a mint. Overpowering. But that is my taste. Heat oven to
350. In medium sauacepan, combine chocolate chips &
1 scant TB of dough around each candy kiss, covering
1" apart. Bake
6 to 8 minutes. SEE NOTE
