My mom used to make this recipe but instead of putting chocolate chips in the middle, she would use mini reeses peanut butter cups. You put them in right after the cookies come out of the oven.

Weird. Someone changed my review. The directions here are incomplete. The squares NEED TO BE DIVIDED IN HALF FIRST then pressed into the center. There is no need for shortening. Be prepared to waste a lot of money on the dough like I did to get this right, if it can be done at all. Also, this is really sweet.

I'm still amazed that people still use plastics in microwaves, hmmm! Please take the time to melt the chocolate on the stove top. Other than that these are great. Thanks for the half a square tip from one of the other reviewers.

Ok, I really only used this recipe as a general suggestion. I made my own chocolate chip cookie dough following the recipe on the back of the Nestle chip bag (used mini chips). Put one scoop of dough into each muffin cup. Instead of using the melted chocolate, I used Hershey Drops (like extra large M&Ms without the candy coating) for half the batch and the super mini-peanut butter cups (they come in a small bag, like the Drops, and have no paper on them) for the other half. Places these candies in the center of the dough and baked. They were AWESOME. The pb cup ones were the overwhelming favorites, though. Really easy to make and quite a hit!

I'm an RA and I made these for my residents at a floor meeting. They loved it! ..and me for making them :) You have to play this recipe by ear. I know that a previous reviewer said to only use half a square, but I found that using one square worked just fine. I was careful to make a very deep groove before I baked the cups and then after a few minutes of them coming out of the oven I poked them down a bit so when they cooled their groove was nice and deep for the melted chocolate.

So I sent my husband to the store on Christmas Eve with a coupon for 3 tubes of crescent rolls. He returned with...3 packages of refrigerated cookie dough and he STILL had the coupon. So, I improvised. I used this basic idea for a pie, using refrigerated cookie dough that I fully baked as a pie crust, then added melted chocolate chips in the ratio of 2 cups chips melted into 1 can sweetened condensed milk (to make a softer filling, suitable for pie). It turned out super rich to the point where I can't eat it, but the chocoholics in my life thought it was great. I think if I made it again I'd have to find a way to add a peanut butter layer to cut the strong flavor of chocolate, because it was just too much for me. Thanks for the recipe!
