I love baking treats for the holidays! I’ve got a really easy cookie recipe to share with you: Chocolate Candy Cane Kisses Cookies made with Betty Crocker™ Sugar Cookie Mix and Hershey’s® Candy Cane Kisses that I purchased at Randalls. You’ll love the combination of the chocolate and candy cane flavors plus I’ve got an easy trick to turn your sugar cookie mix into a chocolate sugar cookie mix. I think you’ll agree with me that the ease and love are baked right into these cookies!

Chocolate Candy Cane Kisses Cookies ~ #SpreadCheer with Betty Crocker™ and Hershey’s®I shopped at Randalls for my Betty Crocker™ Sugar Cookie Mix and Hershey’s® Candy Cane Kisses in the baking aisle and the holiday section. I rely on Betty Crocker™ cookies mixes to be able to make cookies with the small amount of time I have to bake.

The trick to turning your sugar cookie mix into a chocolate sugar cookie mix is to add an instant chocolate pudding mix to it. You’ll get a really nice chocolate flavor plus your cookie will be super moist. Because you’re adding in the instant pudding, you’ll need to add in a little water so that your cookie dough will take form.

Here is my recipe for Chocolate Candy Cane Kisses Cookies. My kids loved it so much that they’ve already requested a second batch! It’s also the perfect cookie for gifting to neighbors and friends because it’s so pretty and festive.
