Secret Kisses Cookies
Can you imagine anything better to ring in the new year than surprise chocolate in a cookie? I didn’t think so. Try these for the party!
From: Hershey’s Cookbook, by The Hershey Company, 2009
(Makes 3 dozen cookies)
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
½ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup finely chopped walnuts or almonds
36 Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates or Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates with Almonds
- Beat butter, granulated sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed in large bowl until fluffy. Add flour and walnuts; beat on low speed of mixer until well blended. Cover; refrigerate 1 to 2 hours or until dough is firm enough to handle.
- Remove wrappers from chocolates. Heat oven to 375°F. Using about 1 tablespoon dough for each cookie, shape dough around each chocolate; roll in hand to make ball. (Be sure to cover each chocolate piece completely.) Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are set but not browned. Cool slightly; remove to wire rack. While still slightly warm, roll in powdered sugar. Cool completely. Store in tightly covered container. Roll again in powdered sugar just before serving.
Variation: Sift together 1 tablespoon Hershey’s cocoa with 1/3 cup powdered sugar. Roll warm cookies in cocoa mixture.
