20--- Nutella Kiss Cookies

This is a fun twist on a peanut butter kiss cookie.  Just in time for the holidays!  Go for the dark chocolate kiss- it makes all the difference.

Nutella Kiss Cookies
Makes ~2 dozen

1 cup nutella
1/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
24 dark chocolate kiss candies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a larger bowl, beat together nutella, butter, 1/2 cup white sugar, and brown sugar.  Continue to beat for 2-3 minutes, then add egg and vanilla extract and mix well.

Gradually add dry ingredients to wet and mix well.

Prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper.  Roll 2 Tbsp batter into a ball, then roll in remaining 2 Tbsp white sugar.  Place balls 2" apart on the baking sheets.

Bake for 10 minutes and remove from oven.  Gently press a kiss candy into the center of each cookie.  Allow to cool for 5 minutes prior to transferring to a rack to cool.

Store in an airtight container.
