Hugs & Kisses Cookies
  • 1 cup butter , softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour , divided
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 48 Hershey’s Hugs & Kisses Brand Candies , unwrapped
  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Beat butter and sugar until well blended. Add the egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together 2 cups flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add into butter mixture. This mixture will still be sticky.
  3. Divide dough mixture in half in two separate bowls. Add 2 tablespoons flour to one bowl and the 2 tbsp cocoa powder to the other bowl. I use a ½ tbsp. measuring spoon to measure out a portion from each bowl. Roll the dough together to create a marbled ball. Place balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 11 - 13 minutes or until cookies are set. Allow cookies to cool for no longer then 1 minute then working quickly, press a chocolate into center of each cookie. Allow the cookies to cool for another 20 minutes on the cookie sheet before transfering to a wire cooling rack. Make sure the chocolate has hardened again before storing in an airtight container.
  5. Should make about 48 cookies.
