YUMMY YUMMY ...

Not for my tummy though. Who needs the expanding waist line?
Well not me but I have to share a yummy recipe I found scoping out the Hershey's website.
One of my favorite candies for the holidays are these little candy cane kisses..
I found this recipe for them

CANDY CANE BLOSSOMS

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

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.

And Ohh yes they were as yummy as thy look.
P.S. That is not a picture of the ones I baked. By the time I finished making 2 batches of these I realized oops I forgot to take a picture. This one is off the Hershey's website.
ENJOY!
