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!
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.
Chocolate Candy Cane Kisses Cookies
1 bag of Betty Crocker™ Sugar Cookie Mix (17.5 oz)
1 bag of Hershey’s® Candy Cane Kisses
1 stick of butter softened (1/2 cup)
1 package (about 4 oz) chocolate instant pudding
1 Tablespoon water (or as much as you need to get dough to form)
1. Soften butter at room temperature about an hour before baking
2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
3. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients with an electric mixer
4. Spoon dough into small balls on an ungreased cookie sheet
6. Press cookies onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
7. Allow cookies to cool about 10 minutes before pressing in the Candy Cane Kisses in the center of each cookie
I hope you love my cookie recipe!
