Cookies are VERY good, I made them today for the holidays. I made some with Hershey's Hugs and some with the new Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses. The Candy Cane Kisses added a peppermint taste and look very festive. Candy Cane Kisses are seasonal, I'll make the Hugs year round :) YUM!

Very simple recipe and great the first day. By the second day they were as tough as hockey pucks even though they were stored in an air-tight container.
