  • cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 ounces whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 (2 oz.) packs valentine’s nonpareils or other colors of choice
  • 24 Hershey Kisses unwrapped (we love the caramel ones)


  • Heat the oven to 350°F and grease or line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the cocoa, all-purpose flour, and salt. Set aside.
  • Using a hand or stand mixer, beat the butter and granulated sugar until combined.
  • Add the egg, milk, and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
  • Add in the cocoa mixture and beat on low until just combined.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 20 minutes to firm.
  • Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and roll each cookie dough ball in the nonpareils, tossing to coat the entire thing.
  • Place each cookie about 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes, or until set.
  • Remove from the oven and press a Hershey Kiss into the center of each cookie before removing and allowing to cool on a wire rack.


  • You can store the chocolate kiss cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. If your house is particularly warm, you may want to put them in the fridge to keep the Hershey Kisses from melting.
  • We love to use the caramel kisses on our cookies, but whatever variety your family loves will go great on top of this chocolate cookie.
