Candy Cane Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups

Today is National Cookie Day!  I love cookies so much, so I thought I would post a great and easy Christmas Cookie recipe.  Last year while I was at a cookie exchange my husband decided to experiment with some of the leftover cookie dough.  He came up with these cookies, which are delicious.  I like making the cookies like cupcakes because they come out really thick and the Candy Cane Hershey Kisses add great flavor.

Candy Cane Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups

Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Red sugar sprinkles
30 Candy Cane Hershey Kisses (per dozen cookies)

1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Roll the dough into a rounded teaspoonful and place one ball in an ungreased muffin tin pan.  Repeat for the rest of the cookie dough balls. Bake for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown. Then cool for1 minute and sprinkle the red sugar sprinkles on top of the cookies.  Cool for an additional 4 minutes. 

3.  While cooling, double boil the kisses. To do this, boil a small saucepan that is 1/4 full of water on medium heat.  Use a small bowl that fits inside the saucepan.  Make sure the bowl will not touch the water.  Once boiling, put the small bowl on top and add the Hershey Kisses.  Stir the kisses until they are melted.

4.  Then spoon the melted Hershey Kisses on top of the cookies, covering the indented part.  Continue to cool for another 5 minutes.  Then carefully move the cookies onto a cooling rack.
