Chocolate Kiss Cookies

These easy to make and super delicious Chocolate Kiss Cookies are sure to be a hit! They are packed with chocolate flavour and so simple to do!

I absolutely love these cookies and am so excited to share this recipe with you! They are easily one of my favourite cookies cause they are packed with chocolate! And they are so easy to do too!

I’ve enjoyed these cookies so many times over the years but particularly love making these for gatherings. They are great for special occasions and have always been a hit at potlucks! I have even made versions of these rolled in sprinkles for holidays including Christmas, Halloween, and Valentine’s Day.

How to make Chocolate Kiss Cookies

These simple treats are super easy to make! For this recipe, you will need:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sprinkles (optional)
  • 20 Hershey’s kisses

Preheat oven to 350F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy (a couple of minutes). Add the egg, milk, vanilla extract and mix to combine.
Add the salt, cocoa powder and baking soda and mix to combine. Slowly add the flour until incorporated.

Scoop out dough (I like to use a small sized cookie scoop- about 1 tablespoon) and roll the dough into a ball. If you like, you can roll the dough balls in sprinkles at this point. Place the dough balls on the baking sheets, 2 inches apart.

Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes. Remove them from the oven and gently press a Hershey kiss into the center of each cookie. Allow the cookies to cool on a baking sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

That’s it! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do! If you give them a try, I’d love to hear what you think in them!
