Description

If you, like me, have a fondness for chocolate and peanut butter, then you best hold onto your socks, because this here recipe will knock ‘em off!

Ingredients

  • 1 bag (about 12 Oz. Bag) Hershey’s Kisses (I Use Milk Chocolate)
  • 1-½ cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 stick Butter, Softened
  • ¾ cups Peanut Butter
  • ⅓ cups Granulated Sugar, Plus Extra For Rolling Cookies
  • ⅓ cups Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 3 Tablespoons Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

(In the tradition of all things heavenly, here is a recipe my mother-in-law always used to make around this time of year.)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Remove wrappers from chocolates. Set aside.

Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, cream together butter and peanut butter until well blended. Add the granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat until fluffy. Next add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Finally, blend in the flour mixture.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar and place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Then remove from the oven and immediately press a chocolate Kiss into the center of each cookie. Remove from the cookie sheet and place on a wire rack to cool.

Cool completely.

Um… I think you meant 1 1/2 cups of flour?? I’m making this recipe right now and added a cup bc I can’t imagine 1/2 cup being enough. I’m guessing it’s a typo :)

Really good! I will probably add more peanut butter next time.

Mmmmm, I gave the kisses an old flip-a-roo (pointy end pushed into the cookie) for better packaging when sending by mail! They melted into the cookie even better!
