Ingredients

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups sugar

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

Milk chocolate with caramel candy kisses, unwrapped

 

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup pecans

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Melt butter and chocolate in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Cool completely.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine melted chocolate mixture, 1 cup flour, sugar, eggs, baking powder, and salt in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until well mixed. Stir in remaining flour and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Cover; refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Meanwhile, pulse 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup pecans in small food processor bowl fitted with metal blade until very finely ground. Set aside.

  4. STEP 4

    Heat oven to 325°F.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

  5. STEP 5

    Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Roll in sugar pecan mixture. Place 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 9-11 minutes or until just set around edges. Remove from oven; immediately place 1 chocolate caramel candy kiss in center of each cookie. Cool before serving.

Tip #1

If dough becomes too sticky to roll into balls return to refrigerator for 10-15 minutes before continuing.

Delicious! These were a hit with everyone. The cookies were ended up a bit flatter than I would have liked. Also, while rolling balls, it was a very sticky dough (even after refrigerating). The cookies were so good, that I will make them again.
