Today my daughter and I are making Christmas cookies! She requested cookies with Hershey's white chocolate peppermint Kisses but we could not find them at the store, so we improvised and came up with this recipe with the ingredients we already had at home.
These cookies are chewy and tender with an amazing cocoa taste and a hint of peppermint. We will definitely make these again. She has already told me that making these cookies should become a new tradition. Just another recipe to add to a long list of traditions.
Here is what you'll need:
1 chocolate cake mix
1 stick butter, softened
2 Tb water
1 t peppermint extract
10 peppermint candies, crushed
Hershey's Kiss candies (dark or milk chocolate/white chocolate mint) Remove from foil wrapper.
Place first 5 ingredients in mixer until well mixed.
Add crushed candies and mix well.
Scoop dough by heaping teaspoons.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-13 mins.
Remove from oven and gently press Kisses in middle of cookies.
Let cool completely before eating.
