Fudge Blossoms

Yesterday, I was making a sweet treat for the boys during our Second. Snow. Day. In. A. Row. At this point, I'm feeding them anything to keep them occupied long enough to let me check my email.

I started with an old favorite, Peanut Butter Blossoms:

And then wondered if I could make Fudge Blossoms? I began to experiment with my BH&G Cookbook recipe for Buried Cherry Cookies.


1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup flour
Hershey's Kisses

Beat butter with electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking powder, baking soda,and 1/4 tsp. salt. Beat until combined, scraping bowl.

Beat in cocoa powder and flour.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls, and roll in sugar.

Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

Remove them from the oven and immediately pop a Hershey's Kiss into the center of each cookie. Cool and eat!

***Check back tomorrow for a cute lunch time treat you can make for your kids for Valentine's Day.


  1. if I could get Hershey's Kisses I would bake them. they look delicious.
    My twins are at home too. the second week because they are sick...again.
    so the idea of feeding them just to have a minute is nothing new to me.

  2. Yum!!! Both cookies look so GOOD!!! I wish I had a snow day so I could make some too!!!!

  3. Yum! (You're a brave woman loading your boys up with sugar on a snow day!)

  4. Don't you feel like you are running out of ideas? Mine have been home since last Friday! And last week they only had one full day of school. It's been a challenge to keep everyone occupied! These cookies look yummy. We made chocolate chip and sugar cookies and today we'll try homemade lollipops!

  14. Time for my standard comment. These look delicious. But I'm not sure I can pull it off. LOL. But just like Jen said in her comment, if we have another snow day, I'll try!

    Juniper, what's with getting rid of the anonymous comment option. Dammit, I can't remember my Google login. LOL. Bring it back. Come on, girl!!!
