form the cookies, add the smartie and press very gently (or it'll break);


(note to self, maybe one should freeze the smarties before putting them on so that they won't break?);


once formed put in the fridge (or outside if it's cold enough) to set for 10 minutes;


cook in a preheated ventilated oven at 180°C for 6-8 minutes;


cool completely on a rack and decorate with a little bit of melted chocolate.
