"First of all, these are not for me -- not a huge peanut butter fan, but I did try one to make sure all was well. The cookie was so light I couldn't believe it! It was almost like a delectable crust of some sort, impressive to say the least. On the first batch I had unwrapped my chocolates ahead and was ready to go when they came out pipin' hot, but they were not sticking or melting to the cookie so I put them back in the oven for a 30 seconds or so. The second batch I cooked for 8 minutes since 9 was slightly too much for the first batch. On the last minute of cooking the second batch, I opened the oven and dropped the chocolates in place. By the time I had dropped all 12 in, it was time to remove and they were perfect. You definitely will not find these cookies in the grocery store on the shelves or the bakery. If you have a peanut/chocolate lover like mine, they will very much appreciate a fresh batch of these! Thank you for a very nice recipe. :)"
"I had never made these before - DELICIOUS! So glad I picked this recipe. Thanks AprilShowers!"
"Better than store-bought! These tasted amazing and I would make them again in a heartbeat. After you place the Kisses, they won't be hard for a long time so remember that when you plate the cookies."
"This is an excellent recipe. Don't overcook them - I pulled mine at about 7-8 mins, and after topping the cookies with a chocolate kiss put them back into the oven for just about 30 seconds. They came out perfect!"
"My boyfriend made these (his favorite cookie) and they turned out perfect and delicious, thank you! I will be trying the heart variation for Valentine's Day :)"
"These were exactly what I was looking for. Very good."
"these r the best hershey kiss cookies i have ever made. easy, on hand ingredients, and best of all...quick. this recipe made exactly 48 cookies and i used a 1" cookie scoop. perfect. thank you for posting."
"Excellent cookies. I used dark chocolate kisses and they were wonderful. DH prefers milk chocolate kisses."
"These were so good! I made hearts out of mine, just formed the dough with my fingers before placing it on the cookie sheet. A side note, I will make them a little smaller next time! When I put them on the cookie sheet I thought they would be the size i wanted (small) but the dough spreads out a good amount!!! These were still so simple and very yummy!"
"We had a ton of leftover chocolate eggs from Easter, so I sliced them in half to use on these cookies. Turned out perfect. I will say that I overcooked them a bit waiting for them to get "lightly browned" but learned quickly that it was too long. Thanks!"
"So so good! I can't wait to make these again!! 8 mins was absolutely perfect for me."
"These were really good, we used to make them all the time when I was a kid and I couldn't find the recipe, this was definitely it! I put them in the oven for 8 minutes, and then took them out and put the kisses in the cookies, then put them back in the oven for a couple more minutes; it made the kisses just the right amount of melty without burning them. YUM!"
"This is very similar to the recipe I use, but I replace the Chocolate kisses with Dove chocolate hearts. They are perfect to make around Valentine's Day!"
"I made these for DH and used mini Reeses Peanut Butter Cups per his request (I'm not much of a cookie person). He told me that "these are the best things you've ever baked" (I'm not much of a baker!). So, five stars from DH!"
"These cookies were amazing! Amazingly perfect! I kept them small (yielded 51 cookies) and only cooked them for 8 minutes and they couldn't have been better! I will be using this recipe for many years to come! Thank you!"
"This was my first attempt to make these and they were fantastic! Easy and delicious! Thanks for posting."
"These Cookies Were Great! The one thing I did change was the shortening, I use butter flavored shortening, because usually I like to use butter, and the flavor was fantastic! They were fairly easy to make as well which is a bonus with three little one running around!! Thanks April!"
"This recipe is sooo easy and delicious. DH's favorite, and my little one is liking all the chocolate out first as I write, before she tackles the rest. You can't go wrong!"
"Very good. As an alternative, try using rolos in place of the kisses. Equally good!"
"I have to make these every year for x-mas. Thankfully this recipe was here, I misplaced mine. My husband informed me I need to make more because the one's I made wouldn't last the night. Thanks for posting."
