“So tonight we gonna party like it’s 1999 12-21-12.”

Congratulations! If you are reading this, the Mayans were thankfully drunk off tequila when they decided the world was going to end on 12-21-12. It’s like 2000 all over again, except I’m old enough to celebrate with a drink this time around.

Sometimes I get into things a little bit too much. Like theme parties or celebrating my birthday for an entire month. Same goes for the worlds gonna end events. New Years Eve 1999 and 12-20-12 were both spent with me enjoying it like it could actually possibly be my last day. Sure I didn’t believe the world would end on either day, but that didn’t stop me from eating like calories didn’t count, shopping at Target like I had someone else’s credit card and drinking wine before 5pm. :)

I wanted to share the fun of eating like the calories don’t count, so I took these Chocolate Candy Cane Blossoms around to our friends and family. We are leaving tomorrow to spend Christmas in Texas with all of my family, so I wanted the chance to spread a little Christmas cheer before I left.

These Chocolate Candy Cane Blossoms are exactly that – Christmas Cheer. The chocolate cookie is scrumptious all on it’s own, but the added bit of white chocolate and peppermint on top really sends it over the top. This cookie is also great with the Hershey’s Cordial Cherry Creme Kisses. I actually preferred it with the Cherry Kisses over the Candy Cane ones! Use whichever your family likes better!

Merry Christmas!! (…or Happy Hanukah…Happy Kwanzaa…or just plain Happy Holidays!)

These candy cake cookies are filled with chocolate and topped with Hershey's candy cane kisses.

    Just baked off a batch of these this morning– I love the idea and they’re adorable, but the cookie itself doesn’t have a very strong chocolatey flavor. I will definitely make them again, and might try substituting out some of the flour with extra cocoa powder? Otherwise, I love them, thanks for the recipe!

    There coookies are great, however the recipe fails to mention that they should be rolled in sugar before baking….and also do not put the kisses on the cookies until AFTER they have cooled for 2 minutes, otherwise the kisses melt and don’t keep their shape.

    To prevent the kisses from melting when u press into warm cookie refridge kisses for a few minutes before. Also to put dough into fridge before forming balls the. Roll balls in large crystal sugar before baking for prettiness.

    How did you keep the kisses from melting? Mine all turned into a puddle. Still taste good but not as attractive.

      Hmm that’s strange! Mine didn’t melt at all. Maybe next time give your cookies a few minutes to start to cool and then press them into the top!

    WOO the world did not end! Which means I can continue to eat like calories don’t exist ;) And I LOVE blossom cookies – I fell in love with Caramel Kiss ones but Peppermint must be divine with chocolate cookies. YUM

    Merry Christmas!

    Excuse me, but you had me at “Cherry Kisses”. There’s actually Cherry Kisses?! How did I not know this? Cherry and chocolate are my favoritest (is that even a word?) combination… ever. Thanks for the tip, girl!
