Description

I've always loved the chocolate peppermint combination and when I found the Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses I knew I had to make something delicious using them. I decided to incorporate them into a scrumptious chocolate thumbprint cookie and the Peppermint Kiss Cookie was born.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, unsalted at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbs. half & half
  • 1 bag Hershey's Kisses Candy Cane flavor

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer or large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugars together until fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Add the vanilla and mix well.

Add the flour, cocoa powder, and salt and mix until incorporated. It will be dry.

Add the half & half and mix until incorporated.

Roll the dough into walnut sized balls and place on parchment lined baking sheet about 1-1/2 inches apart.

Bake for 9 minutes.

As soon as they are out of the oven place the peppermint kiss in the center and push down lightly until it is set in the cookie.

Cool for 5 minutes on the baking tray then move to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

The chocolate and peppermint flavor of these cookies reminds me of cool winter days.

Enjoy!
