1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius). Spray two mini muffin pans (about 36 muffin cups) very generously with cooking spray.
2. Divide dough evenly between mini muffin cups, using about a tablespoon of dough for each, depending on the size of your tins. Fill halfway to three-quarters of the way full; smooth tops. (Wet fingers will help the tops spread smoothly.)
3. With a floured fingertip, form a small indentation in the center of each cookie. Stir the Nougat Schmeer to soften and fill each indentation to the top. Smooth tops. Alternatively, drop in a few nougat chips to fill the indentation.
4. Bake for 10–12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before removing nuggets from tins with a dull knife.
