Ingredients

  • 1 tube (16-1/2 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

Nutritional Facts

1 cookie equals 224 calories, 10 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 12 mg cholesterol, 115 mg sodium, 33 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 2 g protein.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place cookie dough in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature 5-10 minutes to soften. Add flour to cookie dough; beat until blended.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-in. round cookie cutter. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile, place 2/3 cup chocolate chips in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; stir with a whisk until smooth. Stir in extract. Refrigerate until mixture reaches a spreading consistency, about 30 minutes. Spread filling on bottoms of half of the cookies; cover with remaining cookies.
  5. In a microwave, melt remaining chocolate chips with oil; stir until smooth. Dip tops of cookies in chocolate mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Immediately sprinkle with crushed candies; let stand until set. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.
Freeze option: Freeze cookies in freezer containers. To use, thaw cookies in covered containers. Fill and decorate as directed.
