These are butter cookies with a little twist. I don't know about you but I absolutely LOVE butter cookies. They aren't quite as sweet as sugar cookies so they pair well with things that have that extra bit of sweetness. My sister in law made us some Christmas butter cookies to take on our honeymoon. As soon as we got back I asked for the recipe and I haven't used any other recipe since. They are so soft and they just melt in your mouth. So what do you do when you have cookie dough left from a cookie delivery and you have tons of mini candies left from your husband's Easter basket? You cook them together of course! 
You need mini candies and any butter cookie recipe you choose to use. Any type of candy works but I used Milky Way and Snickers. (My husband now wants some with kitkats in them.) 
1. Preheat your oven to 350
2. Take a tbs of cookie dough and flatten it out
3. Place the unwrapped candy in the middle and pull the sides up over the candy. Make sure to push together any seams all the way around the ball. Any holes will cause caramel to leak out while you are cooking it.
4. Place the cookie balls on a baking sheet and cook them 10-12 minutes or until the cookie is cooked and brown on the bottom.
5. Make sure to let them cool before you eat them!
