Hershey Kiss Chocolate Snowballs


 

Hershey Kiss Chocolate Snowballs

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

I love Influenster.  I have received products from Fekkai, Breyers, Puffs, Ivory and others to test and give my honest feed back on.  This past week I was sent a bag of Hershey’s Kisses to use for #Kissmas. If you are interested in joining they are having a #FriendFlurry right now and you can check them out at: INFLUENSTER.

I decided to bake Christmas cookies with my Hershey Kisses.   I have never been a fan of Peanut Butter Blossoms, mostly because I don’t really care for peanut butter.  After making Hershey Kiss Chocolate Christmas Cookies I still had about half a bag of Kisses left so I wanted to try another cookie.  So, I went to the Hershey website to look for other recipes.  I found KISSES Magical Cookies at Hershey.com.

Verdict:

My daughter far preferred these cookies to the others I made.  The dough is not overly sweet but the sweetness comes from the kiss and powdered sugar.  The hidden treasure of the Kiss inside was a delicious surprise to everyone I had test them.

This recipe made 48 cookies.
