Candy Cane Blossoms


1 bag Hershey’s Kisses brand Candy Cane Kisses

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 egg

2 cups all purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

2 tablespoons milk

Red and Green colored sugar



Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove wrappers from candies (approx. 35).


Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in red and/or green colored sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 8 – 1o minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookies are set. Remove from oven; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Press candy piece into center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. This makes approximately 35 cookies.

Nutter Butter Santa Cookies


  • Nutter Butter Cookies (could also use Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies, Vienna Fingers, or other oval-shaped cookie)
  • White melting chocolate disks
  • Red melting chocolate disks
  • White Chocolate chips
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Cinnamon Red Hots candies
  • coconut flakes (or plain white sprinkles)


  1.  Dip each end of your Nutter Butter into the melted white chocolate.   

NOTE: If you’re making a bunch of these, I’d recommend dipping no more than 8-10 at a time so the chocolate doesn’t harden before you can sprinkle on the coconut.

  1.  While the white chocolate is still wet, sprinkle some coconut flakes on the bottom part for Santa’s beard.


  1.  Let the white chocolate cool and harden while you melt your red chocolate disks.  Then quickly dip part of the top in the red melted chocolate, leaving part of the white showing.  


  1. While the red is still wet, press a white chocolate chip on the side to make the pom-pom on the end of Santa’s hat.


  1.  Using a bit of melted chocolate or frosting, add two mini chocolate chips for eyes and the cinnamon red hot for a nose.  ( I just used a toothpick to add a tiny bit of melted chocolate then attached the eyes and nose)
