Remember the sugar cookies that had a Hershey’s Kiss pressed into the middle of them? Well we’re taking that cookie to the next level of fabulous. These Forgotten Kiss Cookies are surprising easy to make, incredibly tasty and are a guaranteed hit with friends and family! When we made these cookies we opted for Mini M&M’s but if you don’t like M&M’s (How can you not like M&M’s?), you can use mini chocolate chips. Enjoy!
