Chocolate Candy Cookie Cups

A few months ago I stumbled upon this recipe when I was making a cookie tray for my sister's graduation (see HERE) and completely forgot to share it all with you. These Chocolate Candy Cookie Cups (recipe HERE) were a complete success and the hit of the party. The kids gobbled them up and I don't think there was one crumb left by the end of the night. I thought Christmas time was the perfect time to share this recipe with all of you. My mom already decided that these are the cookies I'll be making for the cookie exchange next weekend which is perfect with me. These Chocolate Candy Cookie Cups are SO easy you'll be surprised.

I took a short cut that the recipe doesn't call for. The recipe (see HERE) calls for canned icing that you spoon on which seemed like alot of work to me so I picked up a can of the Pillsbury Easy Frost icing. The icing comes in a can similar to cheese spray and all you simply do is squirt it on. I tried putting baby Reese's Peanut Butter cups in the center of these cookies but they just didn't taste the same as the Snickers. The mixture of the soft and crunchy is perfect. Feel free to try other candies and let me know what you try so I can experiment as well! You can also top these cookies with all kinds of decorations for all different holidays. I think we're going to do silver/red stars for the cookie exchange.

This weekend should be exciting. As you're reading this I'm on my way to Washington DC to visit with my sister, nephew, and baby niece. It's just a short trip but it will be worth it to spend some time with my family. Then on Sunday I'm getting up bright and early to head home for my oldest niece's 12th birthday! I can not believe my sweetpea is growing up....so fast!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Don't forget to enter my Shabby Apple giveaway (HERE)! It ends Sunday. Monday a new giveaway will kick off!
