- Cover the dough with plastic and rest in a fridge for at least 30 minutes.

- Take out the sheet from the oven and place hard candies in the center of each cookies. Bake for 3-5 minutes or until the hard candy melts and spreads out.
- Let the cookies cool completely.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate, about 10-15 seconds.
- For the bottom cookies, add your favorite sprinkles onto the hard candy. Take the top cookies and drizzle melted chocolate around the rims. Immediately sandwich the 2 cookies and set in fridge for 15 minutes.
