Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/4 cups white flour
  • Red and pink sprinkles
  • 30 Hershey’s Kisses

Directions

In a large mixing bowl cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and blend well. Stir in cocoa, baking powder, baking soda. One half cup at a time, add flour.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Once ingredients are all blended, roll a silver dollar size dough ball into a smooth sphere, slightly flatten and dip into a bowl of sprinkles. Place on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.

As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, press an unwrapped Hershey’s Kiss into the center and move the cookie to a cooling rack.

Little ones LOVE to be involved in the prep of these cookies – especially the rolling, sprinkles and Kiss pressing 🙂 If your mama patience can stand it, invite them into the kitchen to help prep these yummy treats!
