How to Make Chocolate Mint Kiss
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Cream together butter, shortening and sugar. Add eggs and mix well. Sift together dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture mixing until well incorporated. Stir in Candy Cane Kiss pieces.
- Roll dough into 1 1/2" balls, (I used a large cookie dough scoop) roll in sugar and place onto ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with bottom of glass then bake at 375 for 10 minutes or until tops just start to crack. Remove from oven, allow to cool on cookie sheets 2 minutes, then remove to racks to cool completely.
- ***For Christmas, I put 1 tablespoon red crystal decorator sugar into the white sugar for rolling dough balls in.
