Hidden Hershey Kiss Cookies

Stephanie Gallagher
Hershey kiss cookies are usually chocolate or peanut butter cookies that are topped with Hershey kisses. These chocolate kiss cookies have the Hershey kisses hidden inside.

If you serve these cookies warm, right out of the oven, the kisses are gooey and melted, making the hidden surprise even more delicious! When available, try the chocolate raspberry Hershey kisses. They make these cookies taste amazing!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 14 minutes

Total Time: 29 minutes

Yield: 24-30 cookies


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 1 cup very finely chopped walnuts
  • 24-30 dark chocolate or milk chocolate Hershey kisses
  • powdered sugar


  1. With an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar together until fluffy.

  2. On low speed, add the flours and cocoa powder.

  3. Stir in the chopped walnuts. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or as long as overnight.

  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  5. Unwrap Hershey kisses. Mold about a tablespoon of dough around each kiss until the kiss is covered.

  6. Roll in your hands to make a ball about the size of a walnut. Place on ungreased cookie sheets.

  7. Bake 12-14 minutes until firm.

  8. Cool. Roll cookies in powdered sugar.

Very Good!, Member SWARNER79

I made these last year for all of my family so I made several batches. Everyone enjoyed them & I have requests for more this year. The only bad thing that I had noticed with the recipe was that you have to use a little bit of dough around the kiss or else the cookie is too big. Taste better with less dough too. I they are messy cookies so make sure that you have a plate under them when you are eating them. I will definitely do this again.
