Hershey's also is the distributor of Cadbury's here in the states.

Aja - I've been making these cookies for years, only I use a chocolate chip cookie base rather than peanut butter (I can't eat peanut butter). Thought I might try them this year with the new chocolate mint hershey's kisses.... choc and mint are a favourite combo of mine and it always reminds me of Christmas. These cookies also freeze very well.

I actually put my kisses in before I put them in the oven and they just get nice and gooey but don't actually melt all over. It helps to make a little indent in the cookie before you put the kiss in the middle...... I like to use a small tart tamper as it's just the right size.

These are also really good with a choc/caramel kiss or Rolo in the middle.

Damn.... I think I've talked myself right into some baking this weekend. Laughing
