Surprise Crinkles Recipe

  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (13 ounce) package fun-size Milky Way candy bars
  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream the shortening, butter and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Roll into 1-1/2-in. balls. Cut each candy bar into fourths; push one portion into the center of each ball, completely covering candy with dough. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown and surface cracks. Remove to wire racks to cool.
