    cookies Ingredients

  • cup all-purpose flour

  • 1

    teaspoon baking soda

  • ½

    teaspoon salt

  • ½

    cup chocolate hazelnut spread (recommended: Nutella)

  • ½

    cup butter, softened (1 stick)

  • ½

    cup sugar

  • ½

    cup light brown sugar

  • 1

    egg

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½

    cup orange sprinkles, or orange sugar

  • 1

    (9-ounce) package of chocolate candy kisses, unwrapped (recommended:

Directions

Directions Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In another medium bowl, place the chocolate hazelnut spread, butter, and both sugars. Using a hand mixer, cream the ingredients together, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and blend until incorporated. Stir in the dry ingredients, just until incorporated. Shape the cookie dough into walnut-sized balls. Rolls the balls in the orange sprinkles or orange sugar, pressing to adhere. Place the cookies on a heavy cookie sheet about 4 inches apart. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven. Quickly place a chocolate kiss in the middle of each cookie. Return the cookies to the oven and bake for another 3 minutes. Cool the cookies on a wire rack.
