Valentine Cookie Cups (with a hidden treat inside)

These little cookie treats are perfect for Valentine's Day!

You start with a sugar cookie mix and add a few ingredients, 
then wrap dough around a candy kiss to surprise each recipient. 

I really LOVE shortcuts so this makes it easy for a last minute treat
if you need one. 

Get the kids to help by unwrapping the chocolates...and maybe even wrapping the dough around each candy. 

Homemade gifts from the heart are the best! These sweet treats definitely say LOVE, especially with the hidden 'kiss' inside. 

Don't waste any time...get busy making these fun cookie cups to 
give to friends or share with your family. They'll be so glad you did!


(with a hidden treat inside) 

1 bag (17.5) ozs. package sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter, melted
3 Tb. all purpose flour
1 large egg
several drops pink or red food coloring
(I didn't measure, I just squeezed out a stream) 
24 Hershey's kisses (or hugs), unwrapped
Valentine sprinkles, optional 

Spray a mini cupcake pan with cooking spray - you'll need 24 total. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350*. 

In a large bowl, blend sugar cookie mix, melted butter, flour, egg and food coloring (I added food coloring to melted butter before adding to mix - you may add a few more drops as you're mixing if desired.)  I stirred this by hand. 

Using about  1 Tablespoonful of cookie dough, roll into a ball; flatten in your hand...covering most of your palm, placing the 'kiss' in the center. Wrap the dough around it to create a ball; roll until smooth. 

Place the cookie balls into muffin cavities and repeat until you use all the dough. 

Bake for about 12 minutes or until the outsides of the dough look set. Remove from oven and then top with sprinkles. 

Let cookie cups cool in pan for at least 15 minutes before removing from pan to cooling rack.
