Ingredients

Ingredients for the cookies

Ingredients for the filling

  • 28 dark chocolate kisses
  • Or
  • 2/3 cup good quality dark chocolate chopped, or use chips
  • 1/2 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 Tablespoon good quality cocoa powder sifted

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment or a nonstick pad. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer using the whisk attachments, beat together the peanut/nut/seed butter and eggs. (You can also use a large, sturdy mixing bowl and a hand mixer, if you prefer.).
  • Add the coconut oil and vanilla, and beat until combined.
  • Add the stevia, baking soda and sea salt, and beat until well incorporated.
  • Scoop 1 1/2 Tablespoon portion of dough and roll into a ball between the palms of your hands. Flatten slightly and place on cookie sheet. 
  • Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing cookies evenly (at least 1" apart) on the cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 13-17 minutes until cookies are puffy and very slightly cracked on top. 
  • Remove from oven and either gently press one chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie or press the lightly greased back of a 1 teaspoon measuring spoon into the center of each cookie to form a little well.
  • Allow cookies to cool and firm up at room temperature.
  • If you're filling your cookies with ganache, wait until they have firmed up and cooled slightly before combining the chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. 
  • Microwave on high for 30-60 seconds until melted and stir able. Stir until smooth, then stir in the cocoa powder.
  • Use a spoon or pastry bag to fill the holes you created in the centers of the cookies with ganache.
  • Allow the ganache to completely set at room temperature before serving or storing cookies.

Notes

  • Do not use the no-stir nut/seed/peanut butter. It will negatively affect the consistency of the cookies!
  • Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • Yield: 28 cookies.
