Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
  • tip 2
    These cookies bake BIG! Try cutting the cooled cookies into four “pizza”-shaped pieces for easy-to-eat, kid-friendly portions.
