Candy Bar Cookies

Hide and Seek Cookies

This week's recipe is for a cookie.  And rather than a drop cookie or a rolled cookie or pressed cookie (umm I think we get the idea)...well this is a cookie with a surprise in the middle.  It's a surprise and nothing will get that secret out of me.  Nothing.

It's a mini chocolate treat inside the cookie!!  Shut the front door!

 Life is good my baking is good.  This really cuts down on having to decide whether to have a chocolate treat or a cookie.  Just kidding...there's no or in that situation!

Cut, fill and shape.  Did I mention there are mini chocolate treats in these cookies?  Yup.
I think these would have been great with coconut chocolates (like Mounds).  But I couldn't find any (it might be an American treat).  Hubbie isn't heartbroken, as coconut is not a favourite of his.

This really is a simple little cookie.  Perhaps another great one to add to my Christmas cookie list. (if I had one)  I have a list in my mind.  So yes, the list is safely tucked away (even from me).

And here are the cookies straight out of the oven.  Not exactly exciting to look at.  But wait...they're not done.

These cookies need a little somethin' somethin'.

This will do nicely.
Are you ready to double dip?  This double dipping is okay and Baked Boy approved!

Dip, dip, dip goes the cookies (clang, clang, clang goes the bell) into the white chocolate.

Then they are dipped again...this time in dark chocolate and sprinkled with coloured sprinkles.

What a great little surprise in these cookies.  No one would have guessed there was a mini chocolate treat in them.  Glad I kept that secret until the end.  <cough>

So darn cute!  Check out Baked Sunday Mornings to see how the rest of the gang liked these cookies, and to get the recipe.

And stay tuned next month, when Baked launches their newest cookbook Baked Occasions.  (Click on the link and take a look inside the book.  You can see some of the testers.)  You might just see me!  Did I mention I did some recipe testing for this book?  Yup, me and a lot of the other Baked Sunday morning gang helped out.  It was a lot of fun being part of this and helping our Baked Boys.  And lucky us, we get to meet them and be part of the official book launch next month in New York!  Yup, we're heading to New York!!!
