Kiss Me Chocolate Cookies

Valentine's Day is coming up - so what better way to show your sweetheart you love them than triple chocolate cookies with a kiss in the middle? These are what my mother made to show her compassion around this time of year, though my father and I tried to convince her these cookies were awful, and she shouldn't share them but instead give them all to us. It didn't work. She saw past our fibbing faces and tasted the chocolaty goodness of these easy-to-make, delightful-to-taste cookies. 
Kiss Me Chocolate Cookies
1/2 cup butter or hard margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated (white) sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon milk
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups all-purpose (plain) flour
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
miniature chocolate kisses (approximately 48)

Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, Beat in eggs and milk.
Stir in cocoa, baking soda, and salt, then gradually stir in flour until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. 
Roll dough into one inch balls. Place a few inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for about ten minutes until set. Immediately press a kiss in the middle of each cookie and allow to cool.
