I read about them in a magazine called Christmas Cookies and they were billed as a cookie to make with your kids, since they used premade cookie dough. I will note that making these following these directions was a bit messy, but the kids did enjoy helping.
Super Duper Chocolate Kiss Cookies
- 16.5 oz package of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
- ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ⅔ cup cup chocolate-flavored sprinkles
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 40 Hershey's kisses, unwrapped
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- In a large Ziploc bag, combine the cookie dough and cocoa powder. Seal the bag and knead it with your hands until the dough is well mixed. (Note: These bags are going to get seriously messy inside, and it may be difficult to get everything out. If you are not making these with kids, I would not necessarily put them in the baggie. But, if you are, the baggie is a great way to have the kids help.)
- Put chocolate sprinkles in a shallow bowl, and then the milk in another shallow bowl.
- Remove the dough from the plastic baggie and start forming them into 1-inch balls.
- Dip the balls in the milk, just to moisten them, and then roll them in the sprinkles.
- Place these balls two inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
- Bake for approximately eight minutes, or until the edges are firm.
- Immediately press a Hershey's kiss into the center of each cookie. Transfer the cookies onto a wire rack and let cool.
