1/2 cup runny peanut butter

Drain and rinse your chickpeas with a colander and lay them out flat on a sheet of paper towels, pat the top dry with more paper towels.
Add all the ingredients (except chocolate) into a food processor, blend until smooth and the dough starts to ball up. You may need to stop every once in a while to scrape the sides.
Make about 20 quarter size balls by rolling them in your hands. Flatten each one with your fingers or the bottom of a flat glass. These cookies will not raise or spread out so make them the shape you want. Space them on your baking sheet just far enough apart that they do not touch.
Bake for 7-10 minutes or until they crack. While they bake unwrap about 20 Hershey kisses.
Take them out and add the kisses right away, pressing them in just slightly. Work fast!
