I've made these a couple times now. But I make the sugar free. I use the Splenda baking white and brown sugar. And sugar free reese cups. After about 10 minutes I take them out of the mini muffin pans and put them on a cooling rack in the refrigerator for about a half hour to an hour so the chocolate gets hard again. Works great...
Easy to make...I always unwrap all my candy place them on a plate and stick in the freezer ...so when the cookies come out the oven and I place the candy inside they don't melt as fast...I make them every year at Christmas they are the first to go
