Double Double Chocolate Kiss Cookies

Double Double Chocolate Kiss Cookies

There is nothing that defines this time of year like Christmas Cookies!  One of our favorite cookies is the kiss cookie.  Traditionally, this cookie uses a peanut butter dough, but our recipe uses a s*$% ton of chocolate.  Yep, four types of chocolate. Two types of chocolate on the inside and two types of chocolate on the outside. Chocolate cookies, filled with chocolate chips, rolled in chocolate sprinkles and topped with a Hershey kiss…pretty much everything a chocolate lover (like my wife and son)would enjoy.  These cookies are the ultimate Christmas gift for the chocolate lover in your life.
