These cookies are truly magic. Why? They feature Hershey candy cane kisses, only available during the holidays. Red Tricycle’s San Diego Editor, Leah makes these on a yearly basis. She loves that the recipe is easy and produces delicious, wow-worthy results.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Candy Cane kisses (unwrapped)
Powdered sugar

1. Heat oven to 350-degrees. Enlist a helper to unwrap the candy cane kisses.

2. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla until creamy.

3. Stir flour and coca together; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Mold about a teaspoon of dough around each kiss, covering completely. Shape into balls and place on a greased cookie sheet.

4. Bake 8 – 10 minutes or until set. Cool completely; then sprinkle powdered sugar over the tops. Super easy and super delicious!
