I love coconut and chocolate together. I absolutely have to make these, as soon as our Christmas fudge is gone.
Another recipe from my daughter's Christmas gift, the Hershey's Cocoa recipe box. Photo is from the recipe card.

How to Make Hershey's KISSES Macaroon Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Beat butter, cream cheese, and sugar with electric mixer on medium speed in large bowl until well blended. Add egg yolk, almond extract and orange juice; beat well.
  2. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to butter mixture. Stir in 3 cups coconut. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour until firm enough to handle.
  3. Meanwhile, remove wrappers from Hershey's Kisses. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  4. When chilled enough to handle, shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in remaining 2 cups coconut. Place on ungreased or parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  5. Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press Hershey's Kiss into center of each cookie. Cool 1 minute. Carefully remove to wire rack and cool completely.
