      Made these delicious cookies for the seniors in my apartment complex bingo night and it was a really big hit. They love the chocolate & peanut butter combination.

      These cookies turned out really good. The chocolate kisses on top dress them up and makes them look “fun!!!” I rolled them into balls and then flattened them. A keeper.

      My family devoured these! These are easy to make and disappear quickly. I used chocolate stars instead of chocolate kisses.

      Quick and easy. Cookies have a great texture to mix up and after they are baked. I used the dark Hershey Kisses since we like dark chocolate best. They don't last long here!
