The other day at the grocery store, there was a sale on huge tubes of cookie dough. What caught my attention was that they had gingerbread cookie dough. I usually bake my cookies from scratch, so I’m not sure if gingerbread tubes are a new thing – but they were new to me.
I bought a tube, and my brain’s Chubby Girl Delight concoction machine went into overdrive. It didn’t take longer for a second for the bell to ring with a brilliant idea: Hershey Kisses on top! (I know I’m not the only one who put this gingerbread/chocolate combo together, but it was an exciting moment for me!)
All you do is spoon little blobs of the dough on a cookie tray, bake for 11 minutes, remove from oven and place a Kiss on top of each one.
Can you say heaven? What makes them even better is that people will expect them to be peanut butter cookies, so the gingerbread is a nice surprise. And combined with the warm chocolate? Delish!!! My family gobbled these up pretty quick and I know I’ll be making more for the holiday season.
If you are going to a party and need to take something, but don’t have a lot of time, Gingerbread Kiss Cookies are for you! also, if you want to earn brownie points from the fam, bingo!
