This is my first time eating sweets in such a long time! Sweets are the absolute hardest for me to say no to, but I have surprisingly been quite good :) That is… until tonight. Haha go big or go home! I am so glad I have a house full of hungry people to share these with, otherwise I could have probably eaten them all. Obviously I do not recommend this if you are in the middle of your fitness program. But if you feel like indulging, they are absolutely perfect with a glass of cold milk :)

INGREDIENTS (I found this recipe online and worked out so great! But I did change a few things to match our taste.)
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. peanut butter (creamy)
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 bag of Hershey’s Kisses
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix the wet ingredients together (they’re the first 5 on the list); then add remaining ingredients. I just used a fork to do this; I don’t like using machines unless I really have to (I am weird like that). It will form a sticky dough. Roll into small balls and place onto a greased cookie sheet. |It should fill 2 cookie sheets perfectly (24 on each). The original recipe instructed us to bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown; ours were perfect at 8 minutes . Place Hershey kiss in center of each cookie right when you take it out of the oven.
When they get cold (and the chocolate gets hard), you can pop ’em in the microwave for 8 seconds per cookie.
