Must be the kid in me ... but ... There is something so fun and appealing about drizzled goodies. The drizzles just make them look delicious. And if you know they've come out of LGrant's kitchen you KNOW they are delicious!!!

Hm... I have a staff meeting Monday, the 22nd. One of our food meetings too. .. might have to give it a try.

Let me know if you want the recipe, SA. You can make the dough well in advance but I wouldn't make the cookies more than a day or so before the event to keep them fresh.

I would LOVE the recipe! Thanks for always willing to share!

I'm not that precise with the measurement for the dough to wrap around the candy. I make sure it is enough to cover the candy well. And don't overbake or they will have a "blow-out" and the candy will ooze out the bottom. Definitely use parchment paper or the Silpats to avoid them sticking with the candy, if you can. Let me know if you have any questions. Oh, and don't try to double the recipe. I did and my 6-QT mixer could barely manage it. If you need a double batch--make two times and then mix together. I use gallon zip-lock bags to chill the dough. It is easier to lay flat and when you are ready, you can cut the bag away and work from the bag or dump in a bowl to work. The dough will look very dry and crumbly but press it well and it will work just great.

Santa’s Snickers Brand Surprises
2 sticks butter (softened) (8 oz)
1 cup creamy peanut butter (10 oz)
1 cup light brown sugar (8 oz)
1 cup sugar (7 oz)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 ˝ cups all purpose flour (sifted) (17 ˝ oz)
1teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 pkg. (13 oz.) SNICKERS Brand Miniatures

Combine the butter, peanut butter, and sugars using a mixer on a medium to low speed until light and fluffy.
Slowly add eggs and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Then mix in flour, salt and baking soda.
Cover and chill dough for 2-3 hours.
Unwrap all the SNICKERS Brand Miniatures.
Remove dough from refrigerator. Divide into 1 tablespoon pieces and flatten.
Place a SNICKERS Brand Miniature in the center of each piece of dough.
Form the dough into a ball around each SNICKERS Brand Miniature.
Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 300 degrees F. for 10-12 minutes.
Let cookies cool on baking rack or wax paper.
Spruce up cookies with drizzled melted milk chocolate (or Dove Chocolate Gifts-I used Hershey’s Kisses) and dust with powdered sugar.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
