1 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
25 (1/4-ounce) individually wrapped assorted miniature chocolate candy bars, cut in half


Heat oven to 375°F. Combine butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour. Beat until well mixed.

Fit cookie press with ribbon template. Divide dough in half. Fill cookie press with one-half dough. Press onto ungreased cookie sheets in 5 (15-inch long) continuous ribbons.

Place candy bar halves, 1/2 inch apart, onto dough strips. Fill cookie press with remaining dough; press in ribbons over candy. Lightly press edges of dough together. Score between candy pieces with table knife. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Cut cookies apart at score marks while warm.

Recipe Tip

Assorted miniature chocolate candy bars can be found prepackaged in the candy section of your supermarket. Chocolate-covered toffee bars or chocolate-covered coconut bars can also be used. For an extra surprise, substitute nuts, dates or spice drops for the chocolate bars.
