Oatmeal Dark Kisses Cookies

There they were, sitting in my Drafts Folder: some draft posts for cookies I bakes for the Christmas Platters I gave to friends, family and coworkers last year. These cookies were one of the twelve different cookies I had on my Christmas Platters, they sounded pretty healthy as they contained oatmeal and I ended up using Dark Hershey Kisses instead of Milk Chocolate.
Hershey Oatmeal Dark Kisses Cookies
recipe adapted from Hershey’s
makes about 6 dozen cookies

1 bag (13 oz.) Hershey’s Kisses Brand Dark Chocolates
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2-1/4 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 cup chopped nuts
Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove wrappers from chocolate pieces.
Beat butter, shortening, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. Add eggs; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in rolled oats and nuts. Shape rounded teaspoons of dough into 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown. Remove from oven; immediately place chocolate piece in center of each cookie, pressing down lightly. Carefully remove cookies from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
