• 1 (12 oz) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk (make sure it’s sweetened)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup good brandy
  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 60 Hershey Kisses, unwrapped

Oh, how we love these truffles! The Hershey Kiss found inside of each confection and the addition of good brandy adds just the right surprise to these holiday favorites.

Another great thing about these delicious treats is that they can be made way in advance and wrapped as Christmas gifts.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In medium saucepan, combine chocolate chips and butter. Cook on low, stirring constantly until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and add the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and brandy; mix well.

Add flour to mixture and, with wooden spoon, stir together completely. Remove from warm pan to a bowl. By placing waxed paper on top of the dough as you shape the Bonbons you will avoid drying out the dough. Using a tablespoon measuring tool, take one tablespoon of cookie dough and place one unwrapped Hershey Kiss in the middle, close up the dough around the Kiss and roll in your hands until a ball forms. Place all bonbons on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 9 to 10 minutes. You can place them fairly close together on the cookie sheet because they do not increase in size while baking in the oven. Watch them carefully and DO NOT OVER BAKE. They will look shiny when they come out.
