Double Chocolate Kiss Cookies – soft chocolate cookies rolled in sugar and topped with a Hershey kiss. A fun cookie for chocolate fans of all ages! 

I love baking with Hershey kisses. Traditional peanut butter kiss cookies are always a hit, but we also enjoy pistachio kiss cookies and mint kiss chocolate cookie cups. This chocolate version is a new favorite.

There’s just something irresistible about a cookie topped with a Hershey kiss. Who can resist them? Certainly not anyone in my family! Being a chocolate lover, I had to make a chocolate version. They are amazing!

A sprinkling of sugar makes them pretty, and of chocolate cookie is soft, chewy, and simply divine. These are a yummy twist on a classic cookie.

How to make Chocolate Kiss Cookies

Ingredients:

  • butter
  • sugar
  • brown sugar
  • eggs
  • vanilla
  • flour
  • cocoa
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • Hershey kisses

Cream butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl till fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir into the wet ingredients just till combined.

Roll dough into tablespoon sized balls. I like to use a cookie scoop so that my cookies are the same size. Roll in sugar. Place onto lightly greased or silpat lined cookie sheets.

Bake at 350 for 9-10 minutes. Immediately place an unwrapped Hershey kiss in the middle of each cookie. Cool completely on cookie sheets, or move very carefully to cooling racks.

How to store chocolate kiss cookies: These cookies will stay soft and fresh for 3-4 days at room temperature in an airtight container. If you want to store them longer than that, they freeze really well. I place them in freezer ziplock bags, and they are great for several months.
