Christmas Cookie Bonanza: Festive Fudge Cookies

I just started making these cookies a few years ago - I found the recipe on Betty Crocker's website, altered it a little bit, and fell in love with these! They're awesome and adorable when you use Hershey's Hugs, but they also taste amazing with Andes mints in the center instead. These also keep quite well, but if you do some with Hugs and some with Andes, make sure to store them in separate containers to avoid contamination!

Printer-friendly recipe

1/3 cup butter
6 oz unsweetend chocolate
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 pouch sugar cookie mix
~60 Hugs candies, unwrapped**

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Nuke chocolate and butter in the microwave for one minute. Stir well until smooth.
2. Stir in condensed milk. Stir in cookie mix.
3. Shape dough into 1" balls.
4. Bake 6-7 minutes. Immediately press 1 candy into each cookie.
5. Let cool thoroughly before storing.

** Andes mints work super well in lieu of Hugs, I just cut them in half.

Those sound good and I'm looking for new ones to tryout that aren't peanut butter. The dudes LOVE those pb ones with the big kiss on top, but now that we are a peanut free family those have got to hit the road. Thanks for sharing.
