Chocolate Overload

This recipe was given to my by J. Michael Long, Charlotte, North Carolina.

Chocolate drizzle can be put on each cookie, either milk, dark, or even white chocolate can be used. Around Valentines you can replace the Kisses with the heart shaped Dove chocolates, dark or milk. This will make the cookies a lot richer in flavor, so don’t eat too many!

makes: 4 dozen

1 bag (10oz) HERSHEY'S Kisses, plain or with almonds
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
⅓ cup granulated sugar
⅓ cup light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375F. Remove wrappers from the kisses and set aside the chocolate. Beat butter, sugars and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Add flour and cocoa to butter mixture and blend until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Mold a scant tablespoon of dough around each chocolate Kiss, covering completely; shape into balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool slightly before transferring to wire rack. Let cool completely.
