Hershey's Kisses Candy Cane Blossoms

I followed the recipe straight from a bag of Hershey's Kisses Candy Cane Mint. This cookie is not only easy to make but also seem to be a hit with a lot of people! I love making these for Christmas because they are so festive and colorful.

10 oz bag of Hershey's Kisses Candy Cane Mint (48 pieces of candy)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons milk
Coarse sugar, rainbow nonpareils, and confetti sprinkles for decoration.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove wrappers from candies and leave inside fridge until needed.

Beat butter, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended. 

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in coarse sugar, rainbow nonpareils, and confetti sprinkles. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. 

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookie is set. Remove from oven; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Press a candy piece into center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
