Goodies for Giving *Kisses Chocolate Chip Cookies

I won the Hershey's Cookie Exchange!!! I am so excited! Instead of throwing a party, Ive decided to cook up all kinds of cookies and give them away as gifts. This month has already been scheduled and were way too busy to even think of throwing a party. So I will bring the party to them.
Each pack included the following:
3 packages of Hershey's Kisses
1 coupon for FREE Hershey's Cookie Dough
15 Hershey's boxes
15 Recipe flip cards with beautiful pictures of each cookie
1 free calendar with all kinds of recipe's and some coupons
1 Hershey's kiss ceramic kiss holder

Each box I fill will contain many different types of cookies that I made using the Hershey's recipe, a
recipe flip book, and lots of Hershey's Kisses. This way each family can decide which cookie is their favorite and be able to make it using the recipe flip book.

What about those who did not win the cookie exchange? Well Hershey's has the best website around and you can get any of their recipe's you want there.

Kisses Chocolate Chip Cookies

48 Hershey's Kisses variety of choice. (almond etc)
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1/3 sugar
1/3 packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp shortening

Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and remove the wrappers from 48 Hershey's Kisses. Beat together one cup of softened butter, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/3 cup of brown sugar and one teaspoon of vanilla into a large bowl until blended smooth. Add 2 cups of flour to butter mixture and blend until smooth. Stir in one cup of mini chocolate chips. Mold scant tablespoons of dough around Hershey's Kisses, covering completely. Shape into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes or until set. Cool completely.

Prepare chocolate drizzle by placing 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips and one teaspoon of shortening in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave at a medium (50%) heat for 30 seconds; stir. If necessary, microwave at a medium heat for an additional 10 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Drizzle mixture over each cookie.
Makes about 4 dozen.
