Fudgy Bonbons

1 (12-oz.) pkg. (2 cups) semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup margarine or butter
1 (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
2 cups Pillsbury BESTŪ All Purpose or Unbleached Flour
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts, if desired
1 teaspoon vanilla
60 milk chocolate candy drops or pieces, unwrapped
2 oz. white chocolate baking bar or vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark)
1 teaspoon shortening or oil

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Melt margarine and chocolate chips over very low heat in a medium saucepan until smooth. Remove from heat and add condensed milk; mix well. Add flour and vanilla (nuts if you like) and mix together.

Shape one tablespoon around kiss or hug, covering completely. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350°F. for 6 to 8 minutes. Do not overbake. Cookies will be soft and appear shiny but will become firm as they cool. Remove from cookie sheets and cool. Drizzle bar melted with shortening over cookies. Store in tightly covered container. Makes 5 dozen cookies
