Kiss Cookies

Mmm chocolate on chocolate. If you're a cocoa fan like myself, you'll love these. And they're super simple to whip together.



I used this recipe from the Curvy Carrot, and the only modification I made was adding about a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to the dough to bring out the cocoa flavor.



Here's the star of the show: the Hershey's kiss. In dark, milk, and hug variety. I actually hate white chocolate, but I thought the hugs would look cute. Plus, I made these for my coworkers and I assumed (correctly) that some of them would like white chocolate.



And of course, my favorite, sprinkles. Lots of em.



Once the dough was made, I let it chill in the freezer for a few minutes to make it more workable and then rolled into tablespoon sized balls. I rolled each ball in sprinkles...



... and then pushed my thumb in them to make an indentation. They baked at 375 degrees for 8 minutes.



While they were in the oven, I unwrapped my kisses. As soon as the cookies came out, on went a kiss (or hug)!



These were yummy. The cocoa gives them a nice dark flavor, and they stayed soft throughout the next day (the cookies weren't around after that, so I can't vouch for their long-term softness).

One hint: don't try to make these on a 95 degree day before you've put in your AC units. My dough (and chocolate kisses) were getting constantly gooey, making rotations in the fridge necessary.
