Hershey’s Kisses Candy Cane Cookies

I bought a bag of Candy Cane Hershey’s Kisses on a Christmas shopping spree at the grocery store last week. I also bought a bunch of other candy cane paraphernalia along with a few boxes of White Fudge Covered Oreos. Those are a holiday family tradition I’ll have you know.

I wasn’t quite sure what kind of cookies I wanted to make with the Candy Cane Hershey’s Kisses. I thought about making some chocolate thumbprint cookies but the recipe on the back of the bag caught my eye. I have previously made recipes on the back of Hershey’s boxes with great success, so I thought what the heck. They looked cute and a-baking I went!

20121126-221426.jpg I took this recipe right off the bag of Candy Cane Hershey’s Kisses. You can find it online here.

The official name of this recipe is KISSES Candy Cane Blossoms.

You’ll need: 1 bag HERSHEY’S KISSES Brand Candy Cane Mint Candies 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened 1 cup granulated sugar 1 egg 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons milk Red or green sugar crystals, granulated sugar or powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350°F. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt.

20121126-221615.jpg Stir everything together until well blended. I called my friend Yurko to come over and help me make these. We mixed everything by hand because it seems every time I use my mixer, I get all excited and mix the cookie dough too long. This only happens with cookies though.

20121126-221726.jpg Roll the cookie dough in colored granulated sugar. Make the balls small, 1 inch. This is really hard for me. I have a heavy hand when it comes to cookies.

20121126-221816.jpg Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. I used parchment paper to keep the cookies from sticking.

20121126-221901.jpg Let the cookies cool for 2-3 minutes then gently press the Hershey’s Kisses into the center of the cookies.

20121126-222125.jpg They are pretty delicious.

20121126-222212.jpg And really not too hard to make. You could easily make these on a week night after work. Yurko and I also thought this would be a fun holiday activity for the kiddos.

This is definitely on my top 10 favorite holiday commercials! Thought I would share with all of you!

Enjoy!
