Cocoa Kiss Cookies
Added by Shorty's Place | Wed 28 Jan 2009 @ 12:03
1 cup (2 sticks) butter - softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 bag (9 oz) Hershey's Kisses - milk chocolate
I felt like baking the other weekend, and ended up making these guys, which are dangerously delectable! Each cookie has a Hershey Kiss wrapped inside of it, so I find them best to eat after warming them a bit in the microwave, so that the chocolate melts inside.
I ended up taking a few to my friend Tiffany, who was so delighted by them, that she asked me for the recipe and made them for a party she went to the next week. I hear they went quickly!
Here's how they're made:
In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until creamy. Stir together flour and cocoa; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Add pecans; beat until well blended. Refrigerate dough about 1 hour or until firm enough to handle. Heat oven to 375įF. Remove wrappers from Kisses. Mold scant tablespoon of dough around each chocolate piece, covering completely. Shape into balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes or until set. Cool slightly, about 1 minute. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Roll into powdered sugar.
