Recipe: Chocolate Mint Kiss Cookies

Summary: December 6 - A Cookie A Day Until Christmas!  Chocolate kisses on peanut butter cookies work so well, why not try a chocolate/mint combo? These are so pretty, too.  Hershey's has a recipe on their website for "Candy Cane Blossoms".  Same concept (duh), but with a chocolate cookie.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2½ cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses
  • Sugar
  • White chocolate, melted (for to Make It Pretty!)

Instructions

  1. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients, then add to butter/sugar mixture.
  3. Roll dough into 1 ½” – 2” balls, roll in sugar.
  4. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and place a kiss on each cookie.
  6. Make It Pretty! – drizzle melted white chocolate over cookies.
