Chocolate Kiss and Reese's Cookies

These cookies are amazing!!!  Well, they're amazing if you love chocolate.  Oh, you don't love chocolate?  Then I'm going to have to ask you to move along to another blog, because I do not understand how you cannot love chocolate (just kidding...kind of).  Ben gets all of the credit for finding the recipe.  We added our own twist, though.  We added reese's peanut butter cups to half of the cookies.  This was probably the best decision we made.  Ever.
bag of Hershey's kisses
bag of Reese's peanut butter cups
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup Nutella
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder (I used Hershey's)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
granulated sugar

Makes 3 dozen cookies.

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Unwrap kisses and reese's.  Mix the shortening and nutella in a stand mixer.  Add the brown sugar until mixture is fluffy.  Add milk, egg, and vanilla.  Beat well.  In a separate bowl, add cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, and salt.  Gradually add flour mixture to nutella mixture.  Refrigerate dough for one hour.  Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and then roll in the granulated sugar (see 2nd picture below).  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place cookies on the sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Immediately place kiss or Reese's in each cookie after taking them out of the oven.  Let cookies cool completely on a wire rack.
