Notes

This recipe was adapted from a Hershey recipe I found in a magazine. Originally it called for the use of Hershey Kisses Mint I decided on using Hershey Kisses Caramel. OMG what a great treat as the caramel melts in the center of this cookie...nothing like chocolate and caramel.

This is another must on my Christmas cookie list.
