1) Preheat the oven to 190°C/ gas mark 5.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

2) In another medium bowl, place the chocolate hazelnut spread, butter, and both sugars. Using a hand mixer, cream the ingredients together, for about 3 minutes, until smooth.

3) Add the egg and vanilla and blend until incorporated.

4) Stir in the dry ingredients, until just incorporated.

5) Shape the cookie dough into walnut-sized balls. Rolls the balls in the orange sprinkles or orange sugar, pressing to coat.

5) Place the cookies on a heavy baking sheet about 10cm apart. Bake for 8 minutes.

5) Remove the cookies from the oven. Quickly place a chocolate kiss in the middle of each cookie. Return the cookies to the oven and bake for another 3 minutes. Cool the cookies on a wire rack.
