Secret Kiss Snowball Cookies

Can you believe it is December already, and the weather outside is not at all frightful?  Our fires have yet to be delightful.  And, we all have places to go, yet there is no snow?  Do we dare request, “let it snow, let it snow, let it snow?”

Actually, here in Mississippi, snow rarely happens anyway.  But, I’m pretty shocked to see Facebook status updates of many of my friends and family in the north about their 60 degree weather in December!  Good for you, my friends!  Enjoy it while you can…

Since it seems no one has any real snow quite yet, how about we enjoy them in cookie form instead?  These snowball cookies were inspired by a friend of my mother-in-law’s, who served something very similar to us years ago.  She wrote down the recipe for me back then, and I recently came across it deep down in my recipe files.

This turned out to be a great way for using the chocolate kisses Hershey’s sent to me along with a few other baking goodies.  And, guess what?  They want to send the same treats to one of you, to help with your holiday baking adventures.

Thanks for the goodies! Ready to bake! #hersheys #CookieHQHere’s what one winner will receive:

  • Hershey’s®Cookie Headquarter Apron

  • 1 pkg. Hershey’s® Kisses® Chocolates
  • 1 canister Hershey’s® Cocoa
  • 1 set of recipe cards featuring the core Hershey’s® holiday recipes

Okay, how about that to get you started baking?  And, all you need to do to enter the giveaway is leave me a comment below (attached to this post) telling me one thing you plan to bake this year for the holidays.  The winner will be chosen by a random number generator, but I still read every single one of your comments, so entertain me! 😉

Secret Kiss Snowball Cookies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 2 dozen

Secret Kiss Snowball Cookies

Hidden chocolate kisses make these snowballs a sweet surprise.

  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 24 Hershey's Kisses (any flavor, I prefer chocolate), unwrapped
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream together the butter, granulated sugar and vanilla until smooth. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and cocoa powder. Gradually add to the butter mixture until combined.

Drop tablespoon dough balls on to a parchment lined baking sheet. Place one chocolate kiss on top of each dough ball then mold the dough around the chocolate kiss, covering completely. Bake for 8 minutes.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on wire rack. When cool, roll in powdered sugar to coat. Best served within 1-2 days.

  187. im gonna bake pignoli cookies!!

  188. I’ll make peanut butter blossoms, with kisses, of course! 🙂 Also snickerdoodles, Norwegian almond cookies, sugar cutout cookies, and peanut butter fudge!

  189. I KNOW I will have to make my brownies which I exclusively ONLY use Hershey’s cocoa for. I’ve gotten so many people addicted to those brownies that I should get a kickback from Hershey’s. LOL During the holidays I make the brownie recipe pouring only half the batter into the pan and then put a layer of Andes Mints (the regular kind) OR sometimes the Mini York Peppermint patties and then pour the rest of the batter on top and bake as usual. They are SO good.

    And I know this year I must make my sugar cutout cookies. I haven’t made them in about three years and I miss those since they really are one of my favorite cookies.

    And I need to make the pecan tassies since those are a favorite too. I could go on listing about 40 things but since you only asked for one, I’ll stop and spare you. LOL

    Thank you for the chance at an awesome prize package.

  190. one thing I am definatly making is my peanut butter fudge. It’s always requested by my friends! I love to give homemade treats for christmas!

  191. Aloha From Maui,

    Our family bakes tons of yumminess every year. We add a few new recipes to our regulars each season. We always make candy cane cookies, thumbprint, snowballs and cream cheese roll ups.

Any baking goods is a happy addition to my kitchen!

    I always make a FRESH Coconut Cake, using a real coconut. My son always has to break the coconut and help me get the coconut out of the shell.
