Hershey Kisses Cookies for Christmas: Mocha Coffee Blossoms
- 17.5 ounce sugar cookie mix
- 1 stick butter, room temperature
- 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- ½ cup flour
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
- ½ cup turbinado sugar or white granulated sugar for rolling
- 48 Hershey's Hugs or Hershey's Kisses
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
- In a large bowl, cream the butter and cream cheese with a mixer on medium-high speed. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until completely incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and espresso powder to remove any lumps. Add the sugar cookie mix and whisk to combine.
- Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
- Roll cookie dough into 1-inch balls, then roll them in sugar.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are firm and the tops are soft and puffy.
- Immediately -- and gently -- press a Hershey's Hug into the center of each cookie. Be careful not to press it all the way through the soft cookie.
- Cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool all the way. The Hershey's Hugs will get very soft and may take 1-2 hours to cool completely cool and harden. You can speed up the process in the refrigerator or freezer.
- Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-4 days or in the fridge for up to one week.
- Store cookie dough in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.Freeze baked cookies for up to 3 months. Freeze unbaked cookie dough balls for up to 2 months. To bake from frozen, add a minute or so to the baking time.
