A very festive thumbprint style cookie. A treat for the eyes as well as the tastebuds.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 3 egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 48 chocolate candy kisses with white stripes
- 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
In a medium bowl, combine the melted chocolate, sugar, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Mix well. Stir in the flour and baking powder. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Unwrap the candy kisses.
Roll cookie dough into walnut sized balls and roll each ball in the confectioners' sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart on an unprepared cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Tops should be crackled and the edges should be golden brown. While the cookies are still hot, press a candy kiss into the center of each one. Remove to cool on racks.
