Cookies to die for (okay, perhaps not LITERALLY!)

(No photo, cuz they were eaten too quickly!)

A very nice university student made us a batch of these last Saturday (thank you Abby!), and they lasted until Tuesday, and even that required a lot of restraint. They may be my favourite cookies ever, but I am partial to Hershey's kisses to begin with. Our friend adds more flour than indicated, as they are quite crumbly.

How can anything with chocolate, pecans and a cup of butter NOT be heavenly?

Secret Kiss Cookies

Cookie dough is wrapped around chocolate candy kisses to make these kiss cookies. Scroll down to see more cookie recipes.


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 bag chocolate kiss candies, unwrapped (7 ounces)
  • powdered sugar


Cream together butter, granulated sugar, and vanilla. Blend in flour and chopped pecans. Wrap one tablespoon of dough around each chocolate candy kiss. Bake at 350° for about 15 minutes, or until dough is set but not browned. Roll each cookie in powdered sugar while still warm.
Makes about 2 to 3 dozen cookies.

    The "unwrapped" instruction just makes you think, doesn't it?


  2. Well you just know SOMEBODY out there would leave the foil on!!!

    most likely :)

  4. I have a recipe for a chocolate caramel pie that states QUITE emphatically that one MUST unwrap the caramels. Really? Unwrap them you say.... Oh!

  5. Aw, I am so glad you liked them!!


Thank you for all your comments, which I love to read!
