Fudgy bonbons and options

Yield: 60 Cookies

Measure Ingredient
1 \N 12oz pkg chocolate chips semi-sweet
¼ cup Butter or margarine
1 can Condensed milk, sweetened
2 cups Unbleached or all purpose flour
½ cup Nuts, finely chopped (opt)
1 teaspoon Vanilla
60 \N Candy kisses, chocolate SEE OPTIONS
2 ounces White baking bar or vanilla flavored candy coating
1 teaspoon Shortening or oil
\N \N * Exported from MasterCook II *
\N \N Mother's Sugar Cookies/Cut out type

OPTIONS FOR CHOCOLATE KISSES: 1. If you like caramel centers, take 3oz of Kraft

Caramels and add 1TB of water, heat until melted.

Pour onto a plate so the mix will make a thin, ¼" layer, place in FREEZER until it is hard. Then, when dough is ready, remove the hardened caramel from the freezer, cut small strips ½" wide of the caramel. Cut these into ½" bits, place in center of cookie dough and roll -- make certain dough completely surrounds the caramel. It will run out if not completely enclosed. Still good eatin', just not as pretty. 3 oz will do two recipes probably. 2. Get bite size Reese Peanut Butter Cups, cut into 2 pieces, and do same as above. 3. In place of (2), use crunchy peanut butter, using

the BACK of a ¼ t to touch into the peanut butter and get a dab to place on the cookie dough before rolling. Back of spoon allows peanut butter to be wiped onto the dough. Using inside spoon did not work for me. Hard to get out. Try it yourself.

Peanut butter has stronger flavor than the Reeses Cups, so only a dab is needed. 4. I like mint chocolate. Found some Mintohs at

Kroger. These are for candy making, baking, etc., Light mint flavor. Size of a quarter. Place one of these in the dough in place of other options. I tried the chocolate covered peppermint candy that is foil wrapped. It was TOO strong a mint.

Overpowering. But that is my taste. Heat oven to 350. In medium sauacepan, combine chocolate chips & butter, cooking & stirring over very low heat until chips are melted & smooth. Add sweetened condensed milk & mix well.

Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup & level off. Combine flour & nuts ~if using- in medium mixing bowl, add chocolate mixture and vanilla and mix well. Shape 1 scant TB of dough around each candy kiss, covering completely. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, 1" apart. Bake 6 to 8 minutes. SEE NOTE 2 jgb

They will hrden. When cool, heat vanilla flavored candy coating and the oil, drizzle over cookies. This is the Pillsbury cookoff winner, and I posted it before. The options I have played with. They work. Good fun to all. Jerry G. Brewster, MPHS, TN 04/16/06:36 pm


Dee I have 7 recipes to post for you. The first 3 are sugar cookies.

Important to remember is to follow instructions exactly and if the recipe calls for chilling the dough be sure to do that.
