cindy's notes for this recipe:
I get up late at night when I have restless legs and can't sleep. So I was doing coupons on the net and looking at different recipes. I usually find several recipes and then I find different ways I turn into my own by changing ingredients. That is how I came up with this recipe a couple weeks ago. Hope you all enjoy these Yummy Cookies!

Directions

1
Preheat oven according to cookie Package.
Place cookies in 4-12 cup mini muffin tins sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake 1 minute less than package says.
In the meantime, melt chips or chocolate in microwave 1-2 minutes and stir peanutbutter. Set aside.
When cookies are removed from oven, drop on counter so that cookies will fall and cause a indent in the cookies.
When cookies are cooled carefully remove from muffin tins. This is the tricky, be gentle. A small sharp knife helps to get them out.
When cookies are cool take a small spoon and put a
layer of nutella in the indent of cookie. Then place a small scoop of the peanutbutter mixture in it. Top with either mini m&ms or Mini recess's or any mini candy you would like.
They are best when left at room temperature but I store in Fridge and take out about 15 minutes before I serve them. If you are service the same day, just leave out at room temp.
Enjoy!!

I am sure you will enjoy them. I made 27 different kinds of homemade cookies for gifts for people this year. They all were great! These are one of my favorites and are easy to make!!
Merry Christmas
