Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies: Cookies ‘n’ Crème Brownie Bites

Cookies and Cream Brownie Bites 3

DAY 11: Cookies ‘n’ Crème Brownie Bites

A simple cookie recipe that starts with a brownie mix and ends with a kiss.

I added white chocolate chips to the dough, but next time I think I will leave them out. You can use Hershey’s Kisses or Dove Chocolates to top the cookies. When I used the Dove chocolates,  I let them melt on the hot cookies and then swirled them with a toothpick into a rounded shape.

Cookies and Cream Brownie Bites 3

1 brownie mix (18-20 oz package)
4 oz cream cheese, softened
¼ cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
1 pkg. Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Crème Kisses or Dove Cookies & Crème Chocolates

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a medium bowl, combine brownie mix, cream cheese, butter and egg. Beat with a mixer until smooth. If desired, stir in white chocolate chips.

Use a very small cookie scoop (about 2 tsp) or teaspoon to drop balls of dough onto baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Do not overbake.

Cool cookies for 2 minutes on the baking sheet and then press a Hershey’s Kiss or Dove chocolate into the center of each cookie. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

If using the Dove chocolates, let the chocolate melt on the warm cookies and then swirl with a toothpick.

Makes 48 small cookies.

Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies: Candy Cane Kisses Cookies

120511 002-2 DAY 12: Candy Cane Kisses Cookies

Fun little Christmas colored cookies topped with candy cane flavored Hershey’s Kisses. These are great for making with kids. They love rolling the dough balls in colored sugar and pressing the Kisses into the warm cookies. I did find that the white chocolate kisses tend to collapse into themselves (melt) faster than the regular chocolate kisses. If you like this, press the Kisses into the cookies immediately after removing the cookies from the oven. If you want the Kisses to hold their shape, wait about 3 minutes before pressing the Kisses into the cookies. Don’t wait until they are completely cool, however, or the Kisses won’t “stick”.

These cookies are best made very small; they should be just barely bigger than the Kisses (after baking).
