Obviously, I'm on a chocolate kick right now. I love chocolate and can eat it as long as I don't overdo it. Dark chocolate is my favorite. I even liked dark chocolate as a child. I was always the weird kid who chose the Special Dark in the package of Hershey's miniatures. I also remember being the only girl in my first grade class to pick the black licorice instead of strawberry when the teacher handed them out as a treat one day. My weirdness started young.
I didn't make these cookies for me though. I made them for our neighbor. He helped us blow out our driveway after the snow storm last week so we could get to work. He deserved some cookies for that. Since I had a package of Hershey's Special Dark Kisses hanging out in my pantry, I thought of these cookies. They are so easy. Only four ingredients. And naturally gluten-free.
Start by unwrapping 36 Special Dark Hershey's Kisses.
Then mix together one cup sugar, one cup peanut butter and one large egg. I used my Kitchen Aid, but you can do it by hand, too.
Roll the dough into 36 3/4-inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. As soon as they come out of the oven, press a Kiss in the center of each cookie.
Transfer to a cooling rack and see if you can wait until they are cool to devour one!
