Chocolate Cookies with Christmas Kisses

I shared this recipe with Crafty Cierra last week so in case you missed it, here it is!
 I was walking through Target a month ago--sad how all the Christmas stuff was already out-- and I saw these amazing flavors of Hershey Kisses.  I thought I have to have those!!!  So I found my favorite chocolate cookie recipe and went to work.  They turned out fantastic and were a hit with adults and children a like.  So bake some up and share with everyone--after all they make 4 dozen.

1-1/4 c. butter, softened
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
2 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
Peppermint Hershey Kisses
Mint Truffle Hershey Kisses

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, then add vanilla.  Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets.

2.  Bake for 9-11 minutes. Do not overbake. Cool for 1 minute before removing to wire racks.   As soon as you have removed them to wire racks to cool, put unwrapped hershey kisses in the center of each cookie.  Eat, share and love!
