Roll each warm cookie in powdered sugar, then crushed candies. Place on cooling rack. Cool completely; at least 20 minutes. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
  • Use Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting over cookies for a more decorated look! In small microwavable bowl, heat 1/4 cup frosting uncovered on High 10 to 15 seconds until frosting is thin enough to drizzle. Using a fork, drizzle warmed frosting over cookies. Let stand about 2 hours or until set.
  • For even baking, make sure cookies are the same shape and size.
