Chocolate Mint Truffle Cookies

I know I’ve mentioned it before, but chocolate and mint together is one of my very favorite flavors in the world! I took my chocolate truffle cookie recipe, added some mint kisses, and came up with Chocolate Mint Truffle Cookies. They are amazing! They look plain jane on the outside, but then you bite into one and get a mint truffle explosion. Awesome stuff!

Chocolate Mint Truffle Cookies

1 1/4 cups butter
2 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 cup sour cream (fat free works fine)
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 bag Hershey’s Mint Truffle Kisses, unwrapped
Cream butter, powdered sugar, and cocoa till creamy. Beat in sour cream and vanilla. Stir in flour. Take about a tablespoon of dough and wrap around a mint kiss. You should get about 36 cookies. Reserve the remaining kisses! Place on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for about 8-10 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before removing to cooling racks. Cool completely. Melt remaining kisses and drizzle over the top of the cookies.

-Makes about 3 dozen
