Surprise Chocolate Kiss Cookies
Take a bite of these Surprise Chocolate Kiss Cookies and what fun to find a Hershey Chocolate Kiss hiding inside! You can coat the outside of the cookie with a mixture of powdered sugar and cocoa, powdered sugar or leave it plain. Whatever you do to the outside of the cookie, the inside remains full of that Hershey Chocolate Kiss goodness!
In a large mixing bowl beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.
Add the flour and mix until it forms a dough ball.
If it is too dry, add 1/2 tsp of water at a time until it will form a ball.
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
Take a tablespoon of the cold dough, flatten it and place a chocolate kiss in the middle.
Form the dough around the chocolate kiss making sure you can’t see any of the
chocolate. Roll the dough into a ball.
Place all of the dough balls onto an
ungreased cookie sheet. They can be
very close, just not touching. Bake at
375 degrees for about 10-12 minutes
until done but not brown, watching
them carefully until done.
Remove from the oven and after a
minute or two, place them on a wire rack.
Combine the powdered sugar and cocoa.
Roll the warm cookies into the
powdered sugar mixture.
Store in an airtight container.

This looks SO GOOD!!!!! I should make it sometime. <3
They were very good. You would think they would be really sweet with the candy but they really weren’t! Fun to make!
That is really cool! Great!
How cute!! How has no one else thought of this before? I mean, why isn’t this in stores, or something? Brilliant!
I can’t take credit for this one. I actually have a Hershey Lovers Cookbook! It was a recipe from there. I let my granddaughter pick out what to make from the book and she picked this one.
Then thank you for introducing it to a broader audience!
Looks yummy, and not too hard to make!
They were fun to make! Thanks Moira!
Too much ! too beautiful ! fairy cookies 🙂
Awe thank you for you kind words! They are fun to make and even better to eat….lol
I made similar cookies years ago and have forgotten all about them. Thanks for the yummy reminder! Your recipe is a must do later in the week. 🙂
You’re welcome! They are definitely worth making!
Got to try this! I spent one summer in college working at the Hershey chocolate factory!
What????? only ONE summer!!! lol
These look like they’d fun to make and fun to eat – and hard to eat ‘just one more’, and ‘just one more again’ until they’re all gone. Hershey aren’t readily available in Australia, but I guess one of the other brands, perhaps bacci might do the trick.
Haha thank goodness it only made 24 cookies because one day after making them they are all gone! Definitely any type of chocolate piece should work just as well.
All I can say is yum!
Thanks and luckily the recipe only makes 24 cookies because we had them gone in 2 days!
They look so delicious, fantastic idea!
They look amazing, will certainly give them a go!
Thank you Sam and enjoy!
YUM! Can’t wait to try this!
Thank you and enjoy!
