A yummy Hugs cookie recipe :)

Hey everyone I thought since I promised a friend that I would post this recipe I'd go ahead and do it now. I make these every year since 2004 and the kids insist that it needs to be done now no matter what.

Fudge Cookie Surprise:

One 12 ounce bag of semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
One 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. vanilla
approximately 60 Hershey Hugs unwrapped
2 oz white chocolate bar


Heat oven to 350 degrees and in a medium saucepan, combine chocolate chips andf butter. Melt over low heat until smooth. Add condensed milk and mix well. Lightly spoon flour mixture into measuring cup and level off.

In a medium bowl, combine flour,chocolate mixture and vanilla. Mix well. Shape one tablespoon(Use measuring spoon)of dough around each Hug, covering completly. Place one inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at350 for 6 to 8 minutes. The cookies should be soft and appear shiny,but they become firm as they cool. Do not overbake. Remove from cookie sheet and cool.

While the cookies are cooling,melt the white-chocolate baking bars according to the directions given on the package. Drizzle over cookies. Store in an airtight container when completely cooled.

*Note*: You may substitute Hershey's Kisses,with or without almonds, or Hershey Hugs with almonds.

Yeild:approximately 4 dozen

These are yummy and if you eat them warm out of the oven they are a googy yummy mess. I'm not a white chocolate fan but love these. :)
