Cookie Candy Experiments

It's holiday time, and therefore cookie time. But what happens when you put the wrong candy in the cookie?

We were trying for chocolate cookies, using M&M's. Since Skittles look so much alike, I accidentally added some of those. Here's what we got:
As the Skittles baked, they got chewier and harder, probably because so much of the water from the soft fillings evaporated. The ones on the bottom melted into chewy puddles on the pan. I don't know if I'd recommend them as a cookie filler, but they were sure fun to play with!

And does anybody remember the transit of Venus last May, when the planet Venus crossed in front of the sun, forming a tiny black dot?
Here's my "Transit of Venus" cookie.
