My friend gave me this recipe and I guess she served to David Arquette at a band rehearsal and he loved them so she named them after him.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla in large bowl until creamy. Stir together flour and cocoa; gradually add to butter mixture, stirring until well blended. Cover dough with heavy foil and refrigerate at least 1 hour, or until firm enough to handle and shape.
  2. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. While oven is heating, unwrap chocolate kisses. Mold a scant tablespoon of dough around each chocolate piece, covering completely. Shape into balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool about 1 minute and remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Roll in powdered sugar. Roll in sugar again just before serving.

What a great little cookie recipe you have here Heidi! They made a perfect 24 little cookies. I used a coconut filled hershey kiss (spring special) and they were divine! I made the dough the day before and then wrapped and baked the next day. You do have to let this little guys cool a bit more than 1 minute though before removing from the pan - I'd suggest about 5. They roll nicely in the powdered sugar after being completely cooled as your instructions state. They were a hit at a soccer team meeting! Gone! Made for 123 Hits.

Oh my... these are SO good! I made a half a batch because I wasn't sure if my entire family would like them, but what a mistake. They loved them and all 12 were gone in an instant! The only problem was that I did as directed and let them cool for 1 minute, then tried to roll one in powdered sugar and it promptly fell apart. So I sifted powdered sugar across all of them and it worked out great. Next I want to try these with peanut butter cups or pieces of Butterfinger bars!
