As these cookies puff during baking, the chocolate appears through the powdered sugar, forming zebra stripes. Striped candy kisses enhance the effect.
- Stir chocolate in small heavy saucepan over low heat until melted. Cool. Combine eggs, sugar, melted chocolate, oil, baking powder, and vanilla in large bowl. Gradually add flour to chocolate mixture, stirring until combined. Cover; chill 2 hours or until easy to handle.
- Shape dough into 1-1/4-inch balls. Roll in powdered sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in 375 degree F oven 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are set and tops cracked. While still hot, press a kiss into the center of each. Cool on a wire rack. Makes about 48 cookies.
