After trying several different kinds of candy with these I would recommend mini peanut butter cups, I used Walmart brand, and the small York peppermint patties. I tried Nestle's treasures and used all but the caramel variety after I found that they leaked out onto the cookie sheet. I left out the nuts, didn't chill the dough the first time I made them but did the next time and didn't see much diffence. I put a hunk of dough in my hand and another on the candy to make a kind of sandwich, then I just rolled the whole thing between my palms to make it round. It covered the candy almost every time. I did use 1/2 tsp of salt with unsalted butter and 1/4 tsp with the salted kind. Another time I might dip the top of the unbaked cookie in chopped nuts or drizzle some frosting on top to dress them up. Be sure not to overbake them. It will depend on your oven but I'd start with seven minutes and see if that is enough, a good reason to sample as you go.
