Magical Mint Kiss Cookies

I didn't know this was a Hershey's recipe until I bought a bag of Mint Kisses two years ago. I thought my mom made it up! Either way, a delicious chocolate-mint recipe for those who are partial to the combination. I know I am.

Magical Mint Kiss Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
¼ cup Dutch process cocoa powder
48 mint kisses, unwrapped
powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350. In a mixer fitted the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. In another bowl, blend flour and cocoa together; gradually add to butter mixture on low speed. Mold a scant tablespoon of dough around each individual mint kiss, covering completely. Shape into balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool about 1 minute and then remove from baking sheet to cool completely. Roll in powdered sugar once and then roll a second time just before serving.
