Candy Cane Kisses Cookies

Aren’t these cookies adorable and festive?

Many thanks to Tumbleweed Contessa for this delicious cookie recipe. These cookies definitely liven up a Christmas cookie tray. One point to note is not to add the chocolate kisses while the cookie is still warm, or else the chocolate will melt into a not so attractive puddle.

  1. This recipe went around last year and I tried them. They are really tasty and look so pretty on a tray! I found they did get stale rather quickly (anything with the sugar crystals on the outside seems to do this!) but that shouldn't be a problem if you eat them quickly 🙂
