Candy Cane Cake Batter Cookies

I just love holiday baking, don't you? Candy canes have always reminded me of my childhood Christmas. I remember my mother would buy the boxes of candy canes and we would hang them on the tree. For a month straight, I would occasionally sneak a candy cane off the tree as a treat. Funny how the littlest things remind us of our childhood, huh? Well, I wanted to bring a little of that childhood back to life, and into my holiday baking! Once a year, Hershey's sells the candy cane kisses, a perfect little addition to my cake batter cookies!

Candy Cane Cake Batter Cookies
makes 24 cookies
1 cup flour
1 cup yellow cake mix
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons milk
24 candy cane Hershey's kisses

Preheat your oven to 375 f degrees. Beat together your softened butter and sugar using an electric mixer until well combined. Add cake mix, flour, salt, almond, and mix thoroughly. Add 3 tablespoons of milk or more if needed to make a dough consistency. Chill dough for one hour. Roll out dough and cut with a circle cookie cutter (about 1.5 in diameter). Place one Hershey's candy cane kiss in the middle of each cookie and roll in to a ball. Place onto a baking sheet. I like to use a rubber baking mat so that the bottoms don't burn. Bake your cookies for 11 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack. Enjoy!

    I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
