    Orange Clove Chocolate Blossoms Recipe

    Orange Clove Chocolate Blossoms Recipe

    Orange, clove, and chocolate are three flavors that I associate with the Christmas season. A few years ago, I began experimenting with cake mix cookies. I came up with a simple and festive spiced orange crinkle that I made with an orange cake mix. For a new twist on the cookie, I skipped rolling the cookies in powdered sugar before baking and instead plopped a chocolate Kiss in the center of the baked cookie. The three flavors together are all Christmas!

    Ingredients

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
    2. Combine the powdered sugar and corn starch in a small bowl.
    3. Beat together the softened butter, eggs, water, and cloves in a large bowl.
    4. Slowly add the cake mix to the butter mixture. Combine thoroughly.
    5. Drop teaspoons of the cookie dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
    6. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
    7. Remove from the oven.
    8. Immediately press a chocolate Kiss into the centers of the baked cookies.
    9. Allow the cookies to cool slightly before removing from the cookie sheet.
    10. Store the orange clove chocolate blossoms in an airtight container.
