Review This Recipe
Yum! I didn't care for the Jingles, and used Huggies the white and milk chocolate swirled for 1/2 and dark kisses for the other half. Used heavy cream in glaze and a little more butter. Excellent with these modifications. Freezes great!
Cookie part was great, easy, and quick. However, the candy is too large for the cookie. So I used chocolate/peanutbutter kiss's (a smaller candy) and made then into peanutbutter and jam cookies. Worked for us.
