As you can see in the photo, I made these to look like little volcanoes with chocolate lava!

The funny thing is, there weren’t supposed to turn out that way at all 🙂

The recipe I used said they would be neat little balls with a  Hershey’s kiss hidden inside. For some reason, mine flattened out. All I did for the chocolate drizzle was melt some of the leftover Hershey’s kisses and pipe them onto the cookies. So, if your turn out like mine did, feel free to get creative with the invented glaze! If they work for you, then good on you! Be very proud.

Even if they don’t look quite like they should, they are still delicious!
