Red Dev­il Cook­ies with a Her­shey Kiss on top

Red Dev­il Cake Mix

2 large eggs

1/2 cup oil

1 Bag of Her­shey Kiss­es

Mix ingre­di­ents togeth­er in a large bowl, place a tbls sized amount of cook­ie mix­ture on ungreased cook­ie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 min. Remove from oven and imme­di­ate­ly place a her­shey kiss in the cen­ter of each cook­ie. Place on cool­ing racks.

Pep­per­mint Bark

2 reg­u­lar sized bags of White Choco­late Morsels

24 can­dy canes (red and green striped)

parch­ment paper

Unwrap and crush can­dy canes. (Make sure to leave some larg­er pieces of can­dy canes to go on top) Melt two bags of white choco­late morsels in microwave for 3 min. Stir melt­ed choco­late and poor half of the crushed can­dy canes into the melt­ed choco­late and stir again. Poor mix­ture onto parch­ment paper, spread mix­ture to the thick­ness you pre­fer. I like mine thin. Once choco­late is smoothed out, poor remain­ing mix­ture on top and gen­tly push in larg­er pieces of can­dy canes. Let cool until can­dy is hard. Cut or break into pieces and enjoy!
