Surprise Snowball Cookies!

Oh man are these delish.  Hubby disagrees, but we'll ignore him for now.

These have a buttery, shortbread flavor.  They are flaky, smooth and decadent.  All at the same time.

And there is a surprise inside.

I'm a sucker for surprises.

I found this recipe in a magazine years ago, and have adjusted some ingredients.  The original recipe is from Hershey's.

1 bag Hershey Kisses
2 sticks butter soft
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
Mini Chocolate Chips, approximately 1 cup

Heat oven to 375.  Remove wrappers from kisses and eat at least two.  
I know I did.
Beat butter, sugars and vanilla in large bowl until well blended.  Add flour and blend until smooth.  Mixture will be thick.
Sprinkle on mini chips and stir in by hand.

Take kiss, and carefully mold dough around it.  
Shape into balls (that doesn't sound right no matter how you type it).
Place cookies on ungreased sheet and bake at 375 for approximately 10-12 minutes.  Edges will be just brown.  Very slight.  Do not overbake.  A tough crunchy cookie always disappoints. 
Cool on wire rack, admire.
Because you can't resist seeing the surprise, slice cookie in half.  

Yes, it is there.  A perfect hershey's kiss!

Now because you ruined the cookie, eat it.  No one will ever know.  Relish every moment you have with the Snowball Surprise Cookie.  

To fancy them up I dust with powdered sugar and place in cute little tin.  Great hostess gift!
