Choco-Kissed Cookies

Mom and I made a new recipe tonight!! They turned out super cute. I'm taking them to my Sunday School class in the morning to celebrate April birthdays! :)

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 up granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
48 Hershey Hugs, unwrapped

Beat butter, peanut butter, sugars, and vanilla in bowl until smooth and creamy for about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs. In a separate bowl, mix flour, cocoa, and salt. On low speed, beat into butter mixture. Refrigerate 30 mins to an hour.

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll dough into balls, 1 tablespoon each (size of a quarter). Dip each ball into sprinkles, so one half of the ball is covered. Place sprinkle side up on an ungreased baking sheet, 1 inch apart. Bake until set, about 9-10 minutes. Press an unwrapped Hug into each cookie. Let cool slightly on sheet on rack. Removing cookies to rack and let cool completely.

*Very sticky!
*The recipe says to bake for 9-10 minutes....we did 8-9 minutes.
*Don't put sprinkles on the side of the ball too will cause the cookie to stick to the pan.
