Welcome, sweet friends! Today, I’m sharing a recipe that’s as delightful and inviting as a warm hug on a chilly day. My Chocolate Kiss Cookies are more than just treats; they’re little promises of joy, combining the rich depth of cocoa with the sweet surprise of a chocolate kiss. Perfect for any occasion, from afternoon snacks to festive holiday trays, these cookies are sure to steal the show and win hearts!


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 48 chocolate kiss candies, unwrapped


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla, mixing until thoroughly blended.
  4. In another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa. Gradually add to the creamed mixture, mixing until just combined.
  5. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and arrange on the baking sheets, spaced about 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie.
  7. Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Softness is key: Be careful not to overbake to keep the cookies soft and tender.
  • Chocolate Varieties: Feel free to experiment with different types of chocolate kisses for a variety of flavors.
