This version of the traditional kiss cookies were inspired on a recent trip. I was with my husband visiting his family. His aunt had a bunch of chocolate bars and asked what she could do with them. I of course thought of chocolate and peanut butter and suggested the kiss cookie recipe. After she baked them I of course ate quite a few. My mother sent me a huge package of candy for the holidays and a bag of Hershey's Miniatures was in it. I decided to put them to good use..

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup of creamy peanut butter

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 bag (10oz) of Hershey's Miniature Chocolate Bars (I used all regular chocolate but you could use Mr. Goodbar etc)
  • Additional granulated sugar to roll balls of dough into
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat shortening and peanut butter until well blended.

  4. Add egg, milk, and vanilla. Beat well.
  5. In another bowl stir together flour, baking soda, and salt.
