Hershey”s Kisses in a Cookie!



  • 3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 1/3 cup Powdered Sugar (confectioner’s sugar) (adjust to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 12 tablespoons Milk / Water (if required)
  • Hershey’s Kisses – freeze them for at least a couple hours before baking

Note – Freezing will ensure they don’t melt completely while baking


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil
  2. Preheat oven to 180 C (160 C if using convection oven)
  3. Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla extract for 2 minutes to form a creamy mixture
  4. Sift and add the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix well to form a smooth dough. If it is too tough, add 1-2 teaspoons of milk. The dough should be moist, smooth but not sticky
  5. Make equal sized balls of the cookie dough and place on prepared baking sheet. With your thumb, press the center of the ball to form a slight impression.
  6. Place frozen Hershey’s kisses in the impression created.
  7. Bake at 180 C for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are cooked through.
  8. Let them cool completely. If you try to eat them warm, the Hershey’s kisses will melt and become a mess. Let the chocolate set into the cookie.
  9. This will stay fresh in air tight containers at room temperature for 3 days
