Surprise Crinkles Recipe

Surprise Crinkles Recipe

I created this recipe by trial and error using many different kinds of candy. Milky Ways were the secret "surprise" my family liked best.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min./batch YIELD:54 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 packages (13.3 ounces each) fun-size Milky Way candy bar

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the shortening, butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
  • 2. Roll into 1-1/2-in. balls. Cut each candy bar into fourths; push one portion into the center of each ball, completely covering candy with dough. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown and surface cracks. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 9 dozen.
