Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses Cookies

Have you seen these little gems yet? Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses are now one of my favorite holiday candies. They have bits of candy cane in them which was a nice surprise to me. My mother-in-law got a bag this week and we noticed on the back of the package is a cookie recipe. I knew this was something I must try.

My son and I had a great time making the cookies. This recipe is perfect for the kids! You don’t need a fancy mixer. Use your standard hand held blender and a spoon. He had so much fun rolling the dough and rolling it in the sugar crystals. One thing I recommend is to wait at least 3 minutes, or a little more, to put the kisses in the middle of cookie after baking. I was a little anxious with my first batch and the kisses melted a bit too much for my liking. With the second batch I patiently waited and they turned out much better. I know you will enjoy these cookies as much as we are right now.
