2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 vegetable oil
2 t peppermint extract
4oz unsweetened baking chocolate, melted and cooled
4 large eggs
2 c all purpose flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 c powdered sugar
Peppermint Hershey Kisses (about 6dz)
(another variation you could use the mint filled Hershey Kisses)
1. Mix granulated sugar, oil, vanilla and chocolate in large bowl. Mix in eggs, one at a time. Stir in flour, baking powder an salt. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours.
2. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheet with shortening or spray with cooking spray (or use a stone like I do)
3. Drop dough by teaspoonful into powdered sugar; roll around to cat. Shape into balls. Place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet (these cookies do not spread a whole lot)
4. Bake 10 to 12 min or until almost no indentation remains when touched. Place Hershey Kisses in center of cookie immediately after removing from the oven, then place on a wire rack to cool.
