  3. Easy Christmas CookiesTo melt chocolate use double boiler or microwave:
  4. Double Boiler: Unwrap and add the Hershey kisses to the top of a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can easily place a light, metal or glass bowl over a pot of lightly steaming water. The steam will slowly cook the chocolate above. Make sure the bottom of the bowl holding the chocolate does not touch the hot water below. Stir constantly. Once all chocolate has melted add in powdered sugar and stir until well mixed.
  5. Microwave: Unwrap and place kisses in a microwave safe bowl. Melt by microwaving for 30 seconds and stirring, then repeating until melted and smooth. Add powdered sugar and stir until well mixed.
  6. Using a fork, dip Oreos in melted chocolate and flip to ensure complete coating. Shake off excess and return to prepared sheet (bonus points for adding in some Taylor Swift Shake it Off lyrics for the kids).Dipped Oreos
