Fail-proof. I followed the directions and everything turned out perfectly. ADVICE: freeze (or put in fridge) unwrapped PB cups - it is easier to press the frozen candy into the hot cookie without falling to pieces. SUPERB!

WOW! Fantastic Recipe! Made a single batch to try it out exactly as it was printed. Some Key Tricks I Used: **Make dough, and pop into refrigerator for about an hour--it makes cookies easier to scoop. **I used the smallest cookie scoop I had (approx 2 tsp) and levelled off the bottom (so I had exact size balls (With flattened ends!) **I scooped the first batch into the mini muffin tin...and while that batch baked, I scooped the rest of the dough onto a plate--that way I could quickly refill the pan once cooled (I have asked Santa for an extra pan for Christmas--It would be good to make more than 12 at a time!!!) **Freeze PB Cups, unwrap, then pop back into freezer--until cookies are out of oven. **Allow middles to "sink" a bit before adding the pb cup(should happen when removed from the oven after 8 minutes) the "sink" will prevent the sides of the cookie from cracking. **ABSOLUTELY refrigerate the pan before removing cookies for cooling rack... BUT **Decorate with sprinkles BEFORE refrigerating pan--place decor quickly, as the chocolate will start to melt. Shifting placement of the decorations will be tricky! **Once cooled...HIDE from husband, kids, neighbours...they disappear faster than you can make 'em! Great recipe!

I'm not sure where I went wrong, but it most have been me because all of the other reviews don't mention the cookies cracking. I used a regular muffin tin, ungreased. The balls stayed as balls, no spreading. When I took them out at 8 mins. and pressed the frozen p-nutbutter cup in, the cookies edges cracked and seperated. Any suggestions?
