  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, and stir in the milk and vanilla.
  4. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture until well blended. Shape tablespoonfuls of dough into balls, and roll in remaining white sugar.

RECIPE BACKSTORY
I make these for my co-workers all the time. You can go wrong with Hershey Kisses! I usually half this recipe, because half a batch is more than enough... Plus then you get to eat the left over Kisses while you're baking.
