Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature

  • 3/4

    cup creamy peanut butter

  • 1-1/3

    cup sugar

  • 1

    egg

  • 2

    TB milk

  • 2

    tsp vanilla

  • 6

    TB red food coloring

  • 3

    TB unsweetened cocoa

  • 1-1/2

    cups all purpose flour

  • 1

    tsp baking soda

  • Pinch salt

  • 1/4

    cup red sugar crystals

  • 1

    bag Hershey's Kisses

Directions

Heat oven to 375. Beat butter, peanut butter, & sugar in a stand mixer for about 2 minutes on medium speed. Turn mixer to low & add in egg, milk, vanilla, & food coloring. Mix for about 30 seconds to incorporate, then turn mixer to medium high, blending until light & fluffy. In a separate bowl sift cocoa, flour, baking soda, & salt. With mixer on slow, add flour mixture to sugar mixture & beat until just combined. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Pour sugar crystals onto small plate or bowl. Roll dough balls in sugar & place on greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes (Mine were perfect at 8 minutes). While baking, unwrap Hershey's Kisses. Once cookies are done baking, remove from oven & immediately press a chocolate Kiss into the center of each cookie. The cookie should crack around edges. Allow cookies to cool to room temperature.
