Description

These cookies are bite-size bits of heaven! They call for mini chocolate chips in the dough, but I live in the boonies and was out of mini chocolate chips. I had a choice: use mini M&M’s or drive to the city to buy the chocolate chips. M&M’s won!

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Softened Margarine
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Light Brown Sugar (packed)
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips Or Mini M&Ms
  • 1 9oz. Bag Hershey Kisses
  • FOR CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE (optional):
  • ¼ cups Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 1 teaspoon Shortening

Preparation

Directions:

1. Preheat over to 375 degrees F.
2. In a large bowl, beat butter/margarine, sugars, and vanilla until well blended.
3. Add the flour and blend until smooth.
4. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
5. Mold a scant tablespoon of cookie dough around each unwrapped kiss, covering completely. Shape into balls.
6. Place into un-greased cookie sheet.
7. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until set.
8. Cool slightly, move from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
9. Prepare chocolate drizzle, if desired, and drizzle over each cooled cookie.
10. Enjoy!

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

*Yes, you read it right: there are NO EGGS in this recipe.

To make chocolate drizzle: In a small microwavable bowl, place 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon shortening. Microwave for 30 seconds to melt. stir until smooth. Drizzle over cookies.

I’m not sure what I did wrong but my cookies are DRY!!! They are hard as a rock- as the hershey kiss hardens when cool. Any advice?

I made these today and they are wonderful. I couldn’t locate any mini M & M’s so I just used the mini choc. chips. I liked them that way because it adds a little dark chocolate flavor instead of too much “sweet” milk chocolate. I’ll bet an almond Kiss would be good in the middle, too! I was able to get about 38 cookies. Also, I used butter instead of margarine and had no problem with the cookie flattening out.

I made these yesterday, they are fantastic. I did add an egg though, as my mixture wouldn’t stick together until I added the egg.

I just made these yesterday to take to a picnic today and they were fun, easy and really good!! I also used mini m&m’s instead of mini chocolate chips because I thought the added color made them cuter. Mine looked a little more flattened out and not as perfectly shaped as the ones in the picture… but they tasted good! Thanks for a great recipe.

These were a big hit with my family. Instead of 4 dozen, we only ended up with 28. My kids made them a little bit big and ate a lot of dough…but that’s okay because there are no eggs!
