PLACE dough on lightly floured surface; roll out to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes with 2-1/2- to 3-inch floured cookie cutters. Trace smaller version of cookie shape on dough leaving 1/2- to 3/4-inch border of dough. Cut out and remove dough from center of cutouts; set aside to re-roll as needed. Place cutout shapes on baking sheets lined with foil. Repeat with reserved dough.

CRUSH each color of candy separately between 2 layers of wax paper with mallet. Spoon crushed candy inside centers of cutout cookie shapes.
