The One and Only Super Bowl Treat. . . Chocolate Fantasy Kissed Cookies

Drum roll please . . . . . I present to you, the one and only cookie that is worthy of your Super Bowl party. . . . . Chocolate Fantasy Kissed Cookies!! They are sweet and chocolaty beyond your culinary imagination. They are silky, chunky, and so very easy to prepare. They are destined to become a regular upon your cookie platter for years to come. This is your moment to WOW the crowd. WAIT!!! Nobody is watching the big game!! Your guests are too busy admiring and eating your cookies!! Better make a double batch.

Chocolate Fantasy Kissed Cookies
1 roll refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie dough
1/3 cup cocoa
1 cup chocolate chunk chips
chocolate sprinkles
1 cup white chocolate chips
chocolate candy kisses
2 teaspoons shortening
Preheated oven to 350 degrees

(1) Bring Chocolate Chip cookie dough to room temperature. (2) Add cocoa to cookie dough and mix well. I do this with my hand mixer. (3) Add Chocolate chunk chips and stir by hand until well blended. (4) Use your melon ball scoop to measure cookies. Shape cookies in to a ball and roll in chocolate sprinkles. (5) Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper. (6) Place cookies on cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. (7) While cookies are still on sheet place a chocolate kiss in the middle of each. Remove to wire racks and cool completely. (8) Place white chocolate chips and shortening in a food baggie and microwave until just melted. Cut a very, very small hole in the edge of the bag and drizzle over cookies!!!!! (9) Don't eat ALL the cookies. Save some for your Super Bowl guests!!

These cookies are small, but pack a double punch of chocolate and sweetness. The drizzle of white chocolate icing really sends them over the top for richness. They are elegant and sophisticated, yet such a simple concoction. Just one cookie is remarkably satisfying. They are excellent to make ahead and freeze. Now, go and have one of the best Super Bowl parties on the block.
