Chocolate Candy Cookies

It’s National Dessert week and I couldn’t imagine anything better than a chocolate cookie filled with an overabundance of chocolate. When I get a craving for sweets, chocolate is always first on my list. I know I’ve made plenty to satisfy that craving like my Kahlua Hot Chocolate Cookies, Dark Chocolate Doughnuts and my Chocolate Magic Cake. But these chocolate candy cookies take the cake (er, cookie) for being the easiest. A lot of steps are skipped by using a premixed cake mix as the base, and they still taste completely homemade. Of course, along with all this chocolaty goodness I just had to add some more chocolate (grin).

I divided the chocolate cookie dough in thirds to try different additions. First was a batch for my grandson with peanut  M&M candies added. His first choice was any cookie with a blue M&M in it and it got his stamp of approval and Super Dog’s too!

My second batch had Dove Promises with Caramel inside. These were really good but I think they would have been even better if I could have found DelightFulls by Nestle Tollhouse, a caramel filled chocolate chip. And lastly, I just added dark chocolate chips which made them into a decadent adult treat!

When you make these be sure to hide a few for yourself because they’ll be gobbled up by all the munchkins in your house before you know it. Enjoy!

    Cookies are always better when you add candy to them!
