Surprise Snowball Cookies. Hershey Kisses hidden in the perfect dough and tossed in powdered sugar. Nothing about this makes any sense….its just all madness…..sweet, melt in your mouth madness. I love the crunchy bits of pecan, the powdered sugar coating my fingers, and the melty goodness of a Hershey’s Kiss. All combined in one perfect cookie. You.Are.Welcome.
1 cup salted butter, soft at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup chopped pecans, chopped again to be finely chopped
36 Hershey’s Kisses unwrapped
3–4 cups powdered sugar for coating
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add in vanilla, flour, and chopped pecans. Mix until well combined.
Scoop out dough in 1-2Tbsp portions and roll in a ball. Flatten ball in your hand and place in 1 hershey kiss. Fold up dough around it and form back in to a ball.
Place cookies on baking sheet and bake for 10-11 minutes. You don’t want the bottoms of the cookies to become more than a very light golden brown.
Cool cookies completely and roll in powdered sugar. I give my cookies two coats of the powdered sugar. Enjoy!
