Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
When pressing the chocolate candies on top of the cookie dough, be generous! Even if it seems like you’ve put a ton of candies on top of the dough, the cookies will spread when they cook, so put more than you think you’ll need for great-looking cookies.

These cookies bake BIG! Try cutting the cooled cookies into four “pizza”-shaped pieces for easy-to-eat, kid-friendly portions.
