Warning: The dough is to DIE for! 🙂
I made these with my 4 year old son one afternoon. So fun and very delicious!
Nutella Kiss Cookies
(from Giada De Laurentis, www.foodnetwork.com)
♦ 1 3/4 cup flour
♦ 1 tsp baking soda
♦ 1/2 tsp salt
♦ 1/2 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (I use Nutella)
♦ 1/2 cup butter, softened (1 stick)
♦ 1/2 cup sugar
♦ 1/2 cup light brown sugar
♦ 1 egg
♦ 1 tsp vanilla
♦ 1/2 cup orange sprinkles (orange sugar)
♦ 1 9-ounce package of chocolate kisses, unwrapped
1.) Preheat the oven to 375 degree F.
2.) In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
3.) In another medium bowl place the chocolate-hazelnut spread, butter, sugar and brown sugar. Using a hand mixer, cream the ingredients together, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and blend until incorporated. Stir in the dry ingredients just until incorporated.
4.) Shape the cookie dough into walnut-sized balls. Roll the balls in the orange sprinkles, pressing to adhere.
Place the cookies on a heavy cookie sheet about 4 inches apart. Bake for 7-8 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven. Quickly place a chocolate kiss in the middle of each cookie.
5.) Return the cookies to the oven and bake for another 3 minutes. Cool the cookies on a wire rack
Yield: 36-40 cookies
