Chocolate Kiss Cookies are full of chocolate and buttery goodness! These delectable bites of heaven don’t contain peanut butter so they are great for those with nut allergies!

I don’t know about you but there is just something about chocolate and butter that just make life better.

Kiss cookies recipe

Some of my favorite reasons to make these cookies are that they use ingredients that are already in the pantry, the recipe goes together quickly, and they are perfect for holidays, special occasions, or just any reason at all!

Before you start making this chocolate cookie recipe, here are a few helpful tips:


Chocolate kisses, butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, salt, flour, and mini chocolate chips.


chocolate kiss cookies recipeHOW DO YOU KNOW IF COOKIES ARE UNDERCOOKED?

 When you pull the cookies out of the oven, and they don’t hold together when you try to take one off of the baking sheet with a spatula they aren’t done. Or if you look at them and they are still runny or gooey looking, then they definitely need to go back into the oven for a bit. 


 Usually yes. Normally when you take them out of the oven, they are soft and will get harder as they cool. They continue baking on the cookie sheet after you take them out of the oven. That is why as soon as the cookies are cool enough to be transferred without breaking, use a spatula and place them on a cooling rack, silicone baking mat, or on a plate to cool.

If easy cookie recipes are your favorite types of cookies to make, then I have two speedy recipes that you may just love! Our Patriotic cookies and our No-Bake Football cookies both use madeleine cookies which take a lot of prep time off the table! 

Chocolate Kiss Cookies


  • 1 bag (9 oz) Hershey’s Kisses unwrapped
  • 1 cup (2 cubes) butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 packed lt. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup Hershey’s Mini chocolate chips (optional)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugars, and vanilla. You can use a hand mixer, however, I’ve found using a stand up mixer works the best.
  2. Slowly incorporate the flour into the mixture or you will be cleaning your kitchen afterwards; trust me, I know. 
  3. Stir in the mini chocolate chips if you want an extra dose of chocolate flavor in your cookie.
  4. Then using a tablespoon, add small amounts of dough around each chocolate kiss and place them on a cookie sheet.
  5. Bake 10 minutes at 375. I normally bake the cookies only for about 7 minutes as I like the outer part soft.
  6. One tip to keep in mind is that you may want to double the recipe. These cookies are THAT good.

    I've seen chocolate kisses outside of cookies – like on top. How smart to have them in the cookie, like I'm drooling right now thinking about it.

  2. I like that the kiss is on the inside! Yum!!

    Ooh I've never had them inside, how smart. They look tasty!

  4. thanks for sharing this recipe! Mmm I can taste them now-I love chocolate 🙂

    Okay, I'm going to have to try this too. I usually just make these with the kiss on top. But the kids take a bite, and the kiss falls on the floor. lol With it inside, it would probably solve that messy little problem.

  6. Oh my. YUM! I will be making these.

  7. What a great concept! I like that the kiss stays inside the dough when baked. Very cute.
