Forgotten Kiss Cookies

These cookies are bite-size bits of Heaven!
They call for mini chocolate chips in the dough,
But I live in the boonies and was out of mini chocolate chips.
I had a choice... use mini M&M's or driving to the city to buy the chocolate chips..
M&M's won!
And the Little-Foreman-in-Pink loves the "rainbow" look.

  1. I think you need a step 2 1/2 - you forgot the flour! :)

  2. You are right! I just noticed that. thanks! I am quite the dork! lol

  3. MMmmmm! These look delicious!!

  4. Wow they look so beautiful and delicious, i can imagine biting into one of theose. Yumm.

  5. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO making these cookies, Dana!

  6. Great, just great...that added several pounds to my butt, and now I have to make it to add a few more pounds to the rest of me.

  7. Those look great. I wish I could con somebody into making them for me!

  8. Just curious - why is it "forgotten" kiss?

    - your spoiled rotten, "city girl", little sister

    Because, unlike most cookies with kisses, you cannot see the kiss, it's not on top like usual. So... it'd tucked away inside a yummy crisp cookie and forgotten...

    That sounds good right? cause I don't know! lol

  10. Oh wow, these cookies have two of my favorite candies: M&Ms and hershey kisses. I saw this on food gawker and i am definitely bookmarking the recipe!

  11. Ok.. now I know what I'm doing this weekend!! Those just look too darn good!

  12. Dana....
    When are you going to publish a cookbook? I will be first in line to buy one! I have made many of your recipes and they are all FANTASTIC!

    Something to think about? please

  13. What a fun little surprise! I like it!

  14. I made these, chocolate cherry cookies and the maple snickerdoodles, these were the ones they liked the most, though the chocolate cherry were a close second. It probably wasn't fair of me to have 2 chocolate cookies with the maple snickerdoodles, they didn't seem to get touched...I think most will choose a chocolate cookie.
    I made these with the mini chocolate chips, I didn't have the m&m, though I like the color of yours better.

  15. I have been making these cookies for about 10 years but I never thought to put chocolate chips in the dough! great idea!

  16. How much flour do you use.

  17. Made these cookies for a potluck at work. They were all eaten!!!

    I could only get 3 dozen out of the mix and it took me for ever to make them. Definitely will be making these cookies in the future though!

  18. You said the kisses are 'unwrapped'.... Is this right??

  19. Help! I cooked these and the dough fell completely flat, so much so that the kisses ended up just sitting on top of the dough when I pulled them out of the oven. The only variation I did was use salted butter instead of margarine. Is that what caused the dough to lose its shape?
