Rolo Cookie Cups or chocolate covered caramels are so easy and too good for words.

Turtle Cookie Cups are similar to a Rolo Cookie Cup in that you shove one right inside the cookie dough and bake.

Nutella Cookie Cups are absolutely wonderful if you are a fan of the hazelnut spread.

Chocolate Filling for Cookies involve using a round chocolate treat or even a chocolate covered cherry inside.

Cookie Cups for Ice Cream are also an option if the cookie is pressed into the sides of a muffin pan and baked.
