Chocolate Kisses Truffles

Liners available in our webstore, the gold is now available Photo courtesy of Betty Crocker

 A lovely use for our mini liners we sell in our web store! I do not often use a mix for anything but I must say these turned out amazing and I will put them on my cookie exchange list every year! I love when a new tradition is born, don't you?


  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker® Sugar Cookie Mix
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup brute 80% Cocoa
  • 60 HERSHEY®'S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates, or cherry HERSHEY®'S KISSES unwrapped


Heat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, egg, flour, cocoa, almonds and extract until soft dough forms.
Shape dough into 60 3/4-inch balls; wrap each around a milk chocolate candy. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Cool slightly, about 5 minutes.
Roll cookies in powdered sugar. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Re-roll cookies in powdered sugar. Store tightly covered. About 5 dozen cookies.
