32 kiss-shaped candies or your favorite caramel, unwrapped
½ cup sugar
Heat oven to 350°F. Place butter and bittersweet chocolate in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100% power), stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Careful not to burn chocolate (1 to 2 minutes). Cool 10 minutes.
Add 3/4 cup sugar and egg to cooled melted chocolate mixture; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add next 4 ingredients. Continue beating until well mixed.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Press 1 chocolate candy into each ball; form dough around candy to completely cover.
Place 1/2 cup sugar in small bowl; roll balls in sugar. Place 1 inch apart onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet. Serve warm.
