Peppermint Kiss Cookies

During Halloween I made Candy Corn Kiss Cookies so I decided to do peppermint kiss cookies this time with chocolate cookies. I was asked to make the dessert for a work Christmas party and then again for someone dinner party tonight. I stayed up until 4 am Friday morning baking for the work Christmas party. It was for about 90 people. I made a few platters of bite size treats and will post the recipes in the coming weeks.
Beat 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar and 1 stick butter until fluffy, then beat in 1 egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Whisk 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon baking powder; stir into the butter mixture. Chill 30 minutes, then roll into balls and bake 12 to 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Then place a kiss in the center of each cookie.

I also made:
Brownies(with Christmas m&m's scattered on top.
Bite Size Red Velvet Cupcakes


  1. These are really cute. I'm going to try these and peppermint bark next weekend. Thanks for sharing.

  2. any combination of peppermint and chocolate is a winner in my book. these are particularly festive--very nice!
