Chocolate Softies for Santa

72 Smarties or M&Ms (colours red, green & yellow)

½ cup butter or margarine, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

2 (1 oz.) squares of unsweetened chocolate, melted

1/3 cup sour milk

1 tsp vanilla

1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Cut candies into quarters with a sharp knife.  Mix next six ingredients well. Stir in next 4 ingredients.  Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet, allowing two inches between cookies.  Flatten cookies slightly with wet hand.  Place two pieces of each colour of candy on each cookie, pushing into batter slightly.  Bake in 400 F oven for about 8 to 20 minutes.  When pressed slightly with finger it should not leave a dent.  Remove cookies from cookie sheet.  Cool.  Makes four dozen cookies.
