It's not often that I make a recipe off a recipe card without looking at the picture. So, halfway through making these, it dawned on me that I was putting the Hershey kisses in upside down. Oops. I think they're kinda cute that way. I also stuffed about 10 of them with dark chocolate Reese's peanut butter cups because it seemed like a good idea. It was.
I'm sending these off to work with the Mr. because I don't need 40+ cookies laying around, taunting me.

Makes: The recipe says 60. Mine made around 40.
1/3 cup butter or margarine
6 oz unsweetened chocolate
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) sugar cookie mix
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Hershey Hugs, unwrapped (I noticed they also have candy cane flavored kisses. Those might be cute)
Heat oven to 350°F.
In large microwavable bowl, microwave butter and chocolate on High 1 minute. Stir; microwave on High 1 minute longer or until butter is melted and chocolate can be stirred smooth.
Stir condensed milk into chocolate mixture.
Stir in cookie mix and cinnamon until well blended.
Using 1 level tablespoonful of dough for each cookie, shape into 60 balls (40 in my case). Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets (I used my Silpats).
Bake 6 to 7 minutes or until edges lose their shiny look (do not overbake). Immediately press 1 candy into center of each cookie.
- Cool cookies on cookie sheet 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. To get candy to spread slightly on top of cookie, tap edge of each cookie lightly. Cool completely. Store covered at room temperature.
