Chocolate Kiss Cookies

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” – Charles M. Schulz


Nothing else quite gets me in the spirit of Valentine’s Day than Hershey’s Kisses!


 It’s hard not to love Hershey’s Kisses – am I right? These little treats have been around for quite some time and with each new flavor that is introduced they seem to get better and better. I still prefer the plain milk chocolate, but I certainly can’t resist the chocolate & caramel combination!


With such an outstanding reputation, you can’t go wrong by pressing a Hershey’s Kiss into a chocolate cookie. It’s easy, delicious and a definite way to win over some hearts this Valentine’s day!

  • In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugar until well blended. Beat in egg and vanilla.
  • Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder in a medium bowl until combined.
  • Gradually beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture in two additions until combined. Add milk, one teaspoon at a time, to help dough stick together.
  • Flatten dough into disc and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Roll dough into 1-inch balls, then roll in sprinkles (if desired) until balls are completely covered. Place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until cookies are set.

    These cookies look so delicious!! I’ve had peanut blossoms before, but these are much prettier.

      I love peanut butter blossoms! I actually have some leftover Hershey’s Kisses from this recipe and thought I might make blossoms. I never got a chance to make them during the holidays this year.
