1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) real semi-sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup sugar
3 Land O Lakes All-Natural Eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup finely chopped dry roasted peanuts
48 caramel-filled candy kisses
Combine butter and chocolate chips in 2-quart saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, 6-8 minutes or until melted and smooth. Remove from heat; set aside. Cool 30 minutes.
Add sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt to chocolate mixture; stir until well mixed. Add flour; stir until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate 4 hours or overnight until firm.
Heat oven to 325 F.
Place chopped peanuts into bowl. Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. (Dust hands with powdered sugar, if necessary.) Roll balls in peanuts, pressing gently so they stick to dough. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 11-13 minutes or until slightly firm to the touch.
Immediately top each cookie with candy kiss; cool 1 minute. Remove to cooling racks. Gently push on tip of each candy kiss to create crooked appearance to witches’ hat. Cool completely.
