Let's Make It
Preheat oven to 350°F. Microwave semi-sweet chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted, stirring after 30 sec. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Blend in milk and vanilla. Add flour and walnuts; mix well. (Dough will be stiff.)
Shape 1 level tablespoonful of dough around each caramel half, enclosing caramel completely. Roll in sugar. Place, 1 inch apart, on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake 6 to 8 min. or cookies are until soft and shiny. Let stand 5 min. on baking sheet. Transfer to wire racks. Cool completely. (Cookies will firm up as they cool.)
How to Warm Cooled Cookies
To warm cookies and soften caramel centers after cooling, microwave each cookie on HIGH 10 sec. or just until warmed.
Prepare as directed, substituting 48 JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows for the halved caramels.
