  • Once the dough is made, place a rounded tablespoon full of the dough on a baking sheet lined with a Silpat or parchment paper 2″ apart.  You can roll the dough into balls if you want. I do this to get uniform sizes once they are baked.
  • Bake at 375º for about 4 minutes. The dough should spread a little and will look as if the surface is a cookie instead of a dough ball.
  • Remove them from the oven and and place a Hershey’s Kiss in the center of each cookie.
  • Then, add a half of a marshmallow on top of the Hershey’s Kiss.
  • Place them back in the oven and bake for 4-6 minutes.
  • Remove them from the oven and drizzle them with melted chocolate.
  • Let them cool and eat one because they are oh so good you won’t want to wait!
