Christmas Hershey Kiss Cookie

This next recipe will be a new favorite and most requested, really. Who doesn’t LOVE a Hershey’s Kiss? Well, then who wouldn’t LOVE a Hershey Kiss cookie, snowball surprise.

Did you know… Hershey Kisses were first made in 1907 by the Hershey Company in Derry, PA. There are several versions of WHY Hershey’s named this delicious chocolate treat a Kiss. I tend to go with the machine making a Kiss sound as it passes the candy out.

My husband is a history nut and most likely could have told me those facts and many more about Hershey Kisses. I’ll be honest, I’m more concerned about the taste. They just taste GOOD and that is all I need to know. They really make this Hershey Snowball Surprise Cookie taste good.
