Snowy Mountaintops are easily shaped; the dough is cut into squares, a kiss is pressed into the center, and the dough is shaped around. They keep a week or two at room temperature in an airtight container, and they can also be frozen successfully. I have several friends and relatives who live away, and have found that they ship well, too; there has never been any breakage reported.
The only real work involved in making these yummy cookies is unwrapping the individual kisses. This is a good job for kids or husbands, and they usually do so willingly while watching TV - as long as they don’t have to clean up the mess, it’s safe to ask. While they’re unwrapping, make sure they do a whole package, since a double batch is a must.
2 cups flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1 cup powdered sugar
