Chocolate Candy Cane Kiss Blossoms

Okay so a picture of these cookies last year on Instagram is one of my most popular pins on Pinterest and I've seen a lot of comments on those repins about how angry people are that there is no recipe... so here we go!

I adapted this recipe from Two Peas & Their Pod.

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • icing sugar (to roll the cookie dough balls in)
  • Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses (you could substitute any kisses you wanted though, mint, cookies and cream, caramel would be delicious too)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa together and set aside.
In mixer bowl, cream butter and sugars together.
Add one egg at a time and the vanilla extract and beat until smooth.
Mix in the dry ingredients little by little.
Form balls with the cookie dough and roll then in icing sugar.

Bake them from 7-10 minutes and remove them from the oven, they will look like this:

Take your unwrapped Hershey kiss and press it into the center while they are still hot.

You can leave them like this to cool, and the kisses should keep their shape and harden back up.

Or to make packing them up a bit easier, this year I flattened the kisses out when they were hot.

This way they will stack in cookie tins or bags when I give them out.  I think it just makes my life easier, and they still look like cute little peppermints.

I hope all you lovely pinners found your way over to this recipe!

Happy Holidays everyone!
