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

Directions

  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!
