Directions

  1. Beat 1/2 cup butter or margarine, white sugar, egg yolk, 2 tablespoons milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine flour, cocoa and salt; gradually add to butter mixture. Cover and chill 1 hour or until firm enough to roll into balls.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, lightly beat egg white.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  4. Shape dough into 1 inch balls; dip in egg white, then roll in nuts. Place on greased baking sheets. Make an indentation with thumb in center of each cookie. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until center is set.
  5. To Make the Filling: In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar, 1 tablespoon of butter or margarine, 2 teaspoons of milk and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.
  6. Spoon 1/4 teaspoon of the filling into each warm cookie; gently press a chocolate kiss (unwrapped) in the center. Carefully remove from baking sheet to wire racks to cool.

These are DELICIOUS!! I made a couple changes though. I did not roll in egg white & walnuts, instead I rolled each ball in sugar & did not indent. I only baked for 8 minutes then let them cool for about 1 minute before lightly pressing the kisses in the center. Some of the kisses did melt slightly but not too bad. I also left out the frosting. They were perfect with just the kiss. Soft, fudgy, chocolatey...perfect!

These were sooo good, a few comments I received: "these could be dangerous", "very addicting". I melted white chocolate for the center instead of glaze and then I drizzled the leftover chocolate on top of the cookies for decoration.
