Looking for an interesting new treat for the Christmas season? These little treats will be a hit and definitely be requested at the next Christmas party you go to. I use my own homemade sugar cookies and give them a little "hug and kiss" and a dash of festive color for a Holiday theme.

There is a Candy Cane Blossom variation out there that uses Candy Cane Kisses by Hershey's Kisses brand to create a pretty red and white candy cane effect on the top that tastes minty, but I prefer using the cookies and cream Hershey's Hugs to give them a special twist with my own sugar cookie recipe.

Leave a plate of these out for Santa with a glass of cold milk and I can almost guarantee you will have lots of goodies under your Christmas tree this year!

  • 1 bag Hershey's Cookies and Cream Hugs
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • red sugar
  • green sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cup all purpose flour

Preparation Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove wrappers from 35 candies roughly.
  2. Beat butter, vanilla, sugar and egg in large bowl until well blended.
  3. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. Add flour mixture and milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
  5. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in red and/or green colored sugar. (Vibrant cookie note: If you want your Christmas cookies to really have a lot of color after rolling them up, mold them again into a ball making sure to work the colored sugar into the dough. After the sugar and dough is mixed, roll again in sugar for outer layer.) Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake 8 - 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookies is set. Remove from oven -- cool 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Press candy piece into center of each cookie. NOTE: Be quick about this or you risk breaking the cookie (I did this to a couple cookies my first time testing this recipe)
  8. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely and display them on a platter, or put them in a festive Christmas cookie jar!
