These candy cookies were adopted from a German holiday cookie that I came across when I was there a few years ago. In Germany, they usually have huge platters of holiday cookies that moms make. And there was this one cookie that I kept coming back to over and over, and over again. It's basically a Candy-filled cookie. It's really simple to make. When I asked one of the bakers, I was like, what is this cookie? And she said, it's just a chocolate candy cookie. And, so as soon as I came back to the states I started making it. And eating them. And eating them constantly.
