Pinterest Review-Chocolate Kiss Cookies

Hey everyone! I was sitting at home tonight and my little one was sleeping and I got a mad craving for chocolate. Of course I didn’t have any because I tend not to buy junk food or else I’ll just eat it all in one day but that logic did not help my craving tonight. Sooo what do I do? Pinterest of course!

Triple chocolate kiss cookies with a super chocolatey center and crisp sugary coating is how this Pinterest poster described them and that was all I needed to read!

These cookies did not disappoint and are definitely for chocolate lovers. They are like little brownie bites with a crisp sugary kind of crust. The recipe called for chocolate kisses but I only had some candy cane ones left from Christmas so I used those ones and they were so good! I love chocolate mint though so I may be a bit biased.

12. Place on parchment paper 2 inches apart and bake for 10 minutes. (While first batch        is baking I unwrap all the kisses so they are ready to go as soon as cookies are done.)

13. Immediately press a kiss into the top of each cookie.

14. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely and for chocolate to set.

Enjoy! I hope you like these. They are especially good right out of the oven all warm and gooey with a glass of milk. I will definitely be adding this recipe to my folder.
