I made these cookies over a year ago! Sometime in 2014, actually. I found these pictures in my hard drive and memories came flooding back! These are gloriously tasty, easy to prepare and so much fun to eat!

Taking the concept from the basic thumbprint cookies, I stuffed a Hershey’s Kiss in the impression instead of Jam or something else. I didn’t expect it to work – honestly. I thought that the chocolate would melt while baking and become a mess. But to my delight, these cookies came out of the oven – smelling divine AND retaining their shapes.

The secret is to freeze the Hershey’s Kisses ahead of time. That way, they wouldn’t disintegrate and melt while baking. Moreover, when you remove the baking sheet out of the oven, have patience. Do not attack the cookies immediately. Give the Hershey’s Kisses a chance to set into the cookie impression. And when the cookies have cooled completely, you will have an amazing combination of Hershey’s Kisses and Vanilla Cookies.

Now – you have to admit – Hershey’s Kiss on a Cookie is wayyyy better than just a regular cookie!

  • ⅛ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons Milk / Water (if required)

  3. Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla extract for 2 minutes to form a creamy mixture
