Chocolate Kiss Cookies


These are some of the easiest and cutest little cookies around.  I saw some sweet "wrapped" (from Pam at Cookie Crazie) and unwrapped (From Lisa of The Barefoot Baker) chocolate kiss cookies on other blogs and thought they were so adorable that I had to make some!
My unwrapped kiss cookies are frosted with melted Hershey's Kisses:) 

To make them I used a sugar cookie dough and a diamond cookie cutter for the kisses (using a knife to cut the diamond in half:). 

Instructions:
For the chocolate, unwrapped cookies~ Melt about 2 dozen Hershey's kisses (with about a tablespoon of shortening added) in the microwave.  Pour the melted chocolate into a pastry bag (I used a disposable bag).  Let the bag cool for a short bit in the fridge.  With the decorating bag(and a #3 tip), simply apply the chocolate to the cookies by outlining (to look like a chocolate kiss) and immediately filling. Let dry. 

For the "wrapped" cookie~Tint some royal icing gray, outline the cookies(I used a #3 tip) and immediately fill. While the icing is still wet adhere a small piece of the Hershey's kiss tissue tag on the very top edge of the cookie.  Immediately after, sprinkle with some silver sugar (I used Betty Crocker's Silver Sugar Cupcake Gems). Let dry. I left them overnight to dry and then shook off the loose sugar.

TA DA!  That's all there is to it! Cute and tasty little cookie bite kisses for any day of the year!

Happy Valentine's day!
