One of my most favorite bloggers is Mavis Butterfield from One Hundred Dollars A Month, do any of you follow her too?

Every day I read her posts and hope to one day to be just like her. 😀

The other day she posted a recipe for Hershey’s Secret Kiss Snowball Cookies – they looked divine!

My finished cookie pic above. I couldn’t wait to try them – I mean come on, a hershey’s kiss INSIDE chocolate cookie dough…salivating…mmmmmm. So, I made them today and while they were good, they were not as divine as I THOUGHT they would be. Maybe, just maybe when they firm up a bit in the fridge they will be better. Don’t get me wrong, they ARE ooey, gooey chocolately but I kinda thought there would be a little crunch to the cookie and then the melty goodness, you know what I mean????

Here is the recipe and my pics of the steps EXCEPT for mixing, sorry forgot to take a pic – heehee!


1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Hershey’s Kisses, unwrapped {I used regular chocolate, but any variety will work}
Powdered sugar

NO EGGS – REALLY!!! Thought it was a mistake but these are supposed to be fudgey gooey! I did use raw cacao instead of cocoa. I was eating the dough since there was no eggs – yummmmmmm.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar and vanilla together until smooth. Mix flour and cocoa together in a separate bowl until combined. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and stir until fully incorporated.

Drop spoonfuls of dough onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet {I like to use a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop}. Press a chocolate kiss onto each ball of dough and then form the dough around it, covering completely.

Roll, roll, roll them into balls...
Roll, roll, roll them into balls…

Bake for 7-8 minutes. Cool and then roll in a bowl of powdered sugar, coating all sides. *** I then put them in the fridge to firm up, MUCH better!*** Oh and the recipe makes about 28 cookies.

Sometimes you get so excited to try a new recipe , well at least I do!

Enjoy and hope you like them. 🙂
