Tempt My Tummy Tuesday…Candy Cane Kisses Cookies

by Lisa on December 19, 2011

Only a few more days until Christmas!   I don’t know about you, but I still have goodies to finish preparing  for gifts and my husband’s office party.  In case you are in my same predicament, I thought I would share these sweet cookies with you – AND the recipe calls for my favorite candy of the season…. Hershey’s Candy Cane Mint Kisses.  I LOVE them and am sorry I discovered them! My defenses are weak when they KISSES are near. 



  • 48 HERSHEY’S KISSES Brand Candy Cane Mint Candies
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Red or green sugar crystals, granulated sugar or powdered sugar


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Remove wrappers from candies.
  2. Beat butter, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
  3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in red sugar, granulated sugar, powdered sugar or a combination of any of the sugars. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookie is set. Remove from oven; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Press a candy piece into center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 dozen cookies.

I hope you have enjoyed all the fudge and other sweet recipes I have shared over the past few weeks.  I pray you have a Merry Christmas and rejoice in the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Great minds! I made similar cookies but mine are just chocolatey – not festive red and green. Still amazingly delicious though!
