A few months ago I bought a few bags of those Hershey's Hugs Raspberry Flavored Kisses and immediately fell in-love with them. They are the perfect combination of white chocolate with a tad of raspberry flavoring. Sweet, but not overly sweet!
Last week I decided to use some of those delicious tasting Hershey's Kisses in one of my favorite chocolate chip cookies recipes. Here is how I made my own cookies that your family is going to love!
If you are pressed for time, you can do it the "cheater" way by purchasing refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough & just press one unwrapped kiss into the top of each cookie while it is still hot from the oven.
Raspberry Hugs Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
36 Unwrapped Hershey's Hugs Raspberry Flavored White Creme Kisses
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl beat together the softened butter, vegetable shortening and granulated sugar until well blended. It should be creamy in it's consistency. Using an electric mixer, beat in the large egg and vanilla extract.
In a separate mixing bowl sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually beat this mixture into the first bowl until all ingredients are well-combined. Stir in the semi-sweet chocolate chips until they are well mixed into the cookie batter.
Drop cookie dough onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven. While cookies are sitting on the baking sheet, press one unwrapped Hershey's Kiss into the center of each cookie. Let them cool on the sheet. Store baked cookies in an airtight container. Enjoy!
