Chocolate Mint Crinkles w/ Mint Truffle Kisses

I just made these today, and I couldn’t resist sharing them with you immediately.



Have you been persuaded to buy any of those specialty bags of Hershey’s holiday kisses? I picked up a bag of the Mint Truffle flavored variety at Target the other day and found myself wondering what the heck I was going to do with them. I opened the bag and sampled them… bad idea… they’re good. I needed to use them up as soon as possible, so I put them in a cookie: Mint Chocolate Crinkles with Mint Truffle Kisses.



These kisses have the same sort of minty filling as the Andes mints. If you’re a fan of those, then these are a must-try. The chilled dough is rolled in green sprinkle-tainted powdered sugar. While baking, they crinkle apart, giving you snow-topped cookies with chocolate crevasses. Kisses are placed onto the piping hot cookies & then the baking sheets are chilled until the melty kisses are set. Yum yum.

This recipe can be found HERE.

    I love the detail of the green sprinkles on the cookies too. These pictures are making my mouth water.
    I am going to try making these with the mint swirl kisses, mainly b/c those are the only kisses I have on hand and don’t dare to brave Target to get another variety.

    These are beautiful! And I bed they are to die for. I am a big chocolate & mint person, but my hubby hates mint, so I hardly ever make mint recipes because I know I’ll just eat the whole thing myself.

    Oh wow, I have seen those kisses but just walked on by because I thought it was maybe a solid chocolate mint filling…don’t know why I thought that. These look yummy! So do your cookies!

    Don’t they look “purty.” I’ve been filling up my Hershey Kiss dispenser with the kisses of the season for weeks now. I’m yet to find one that doesn’t light my fire!!!

    Thanks for sharing Lori:)

    My mint truffle kisses have a brown mint-chocolatey filling, not the pretty green ones! It was the only variety of mint ones I’ve found. I wonder if Hershey’s does different varieties in different parts of the country?

    Awesome. I love how nicely you sliced through one of the kisses! And what a perfect cookie to attach them to.

    Excellent job in cutting the cookie and kiss in half! So that’s what the center of a hersey mint kiss looks like. NICE!

    Those cookies look amazing! I *love* those specialty kisses. The pumpkin spice ones are also dangerous.

    Love the chocolate mint combo! I haven’t actually tried the mint truffle kisses, but I will have to. I am seriously obsessed with the candy cane ones.

    I made these yesterday and enjoyed them but thought it was a little heavy on the peppermint extract. Probably ould cut it in half.

    I made these cookies for a cookie exchange and all of the girls loved them! They do taste like an Andes mint.
