Chocolate Kissed Snowball Cookies
Why I Love This Recipe
I found this on the back of something I bought once. Maybe it was the sugar cookie mix. Either way it was good and I make them at Christmas every year. I just changed it a bit to serve my chocolate love!
Ingredients You'll Need
1 (1 pound 1.5 ounce) pouch Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
60 Hershey Kisses milk chocolates, unwrapped
3/4 cup powdered sugar
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, egg, flour, cocoa, almonds and extract until soft dough forms.
Shape dough into sixty 3/4" balls; wrap each around 1 chocolate. Place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
(I find it easier to sink the chocolate in, and pinch around the outside to hold it up)
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Cool slightly, about 5 minutes.
Roll cookies in powered sugar. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Roll cookies in powdered sugar. Store tightly covered.
