  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Unwrap chocolate kisses. Mold about 1 tablespoon of dough around each chocolate kiss. Place 1 1/2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until set. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Roll cooled cookies in confectioners' sugar.

This is a great recipe (from Hershey's Kitchens)...I was a little concerned that the kisses would leak through the dough using a scant tablespoon...but they baked beautifully with no leaks at all. I didn't roll these in powdered sugar because I thought the flavor of the dough and the sweet center balanced each other very nicely. Read More

I got complements on these cookies and they were relatively easy to make as well as pretty to present. I liked the pecans. BUT the cookie part was super crumbly and had a strange texture. I won't make these again. Read More

Fantastic! One person at our cookie exchange was almost speechless and finally smiled and said with enthusiasm "this is so good it's ridiculous!" I loved the way the candy kisses stayed soft inside the rich chocolate cookie. I had to agree with my fellow cookie exchanger. I will definitely make again. Read More

This was a huge hit at our Teacher Appreciation Tea. The great thing was that the room was so warm that the Kisses melted again in the classroom we were using. Also to make it extra rich I added dark chocolate kisses versus the regular kind. Read More

These are a great cookie to make with kids! My stepsons loved getting thier hands messy and "hiding" kisses inside. I did use more than a tablespoon for each but it was all the same. Tasted great- nice texture. I used mint kisses- nice combination with the powdered sugar. A fun and yummy cookie! Read More

I found these pretty easy to make and didn't have any problems rolling the dough around the Kisses. They just weren't hugely popular around this house and just a warning these are very messy when the kids eat them. Powdered sugar crumbly chocolate cookie... Read More
