Chocolate Sprinkle Kiss Cookies

Have some family fun this Holiday by starting your own traditions! Of course, baking cookies is one way to have fun! These Chocolate Kiss Sprinkle Cookies are a great way to get everyone in the kitchen!

Chocolate Cookies with Hershey's Kisses and holiday sprinkles!

So recently, I asked on facebook, what is your favorite holiday cookie. WOW. I had so many responses! And there was an overwhelming answer: Peanut Butter Blossoms.

If you’re not sure what peanut butter blossoms are, they are peanut butter cookies with a Hershey’s Kisses Chocolate pressed into the center. YUM.

But before we get to today’s recipe, let’s talk family fun. Specifically, HOLIDAY fun.

What kinds of things does YOUR family do this time of year to create lasting memories? Do you start your own traditions or do you repeat those favorite activities from childhood?

I know this sounds totally cliche, but we LOVE watching holiday movies. And of course, we LOVE baking and eating cookies.

Every year we make a big batch of sugar cookies. Complete with frosting and lots of sprinkles. If you’ve ever had kids decorating cookies in your kitchen, you understand the headache of sprinkles and frosting everywhere. No matter how much parchment paper I lay out, there is inevitably a jar of sprinkles that “accidentally” spills, there are dabs of frosting on the seat cushions, and of course I find cinnamon red hots on the floor for weeks!

But, while it may be frustrating to clean up after this activity, I know one day I’ll be sad when there’s no one at home to decorate cookies. Well, I guess my hubs and I can do it together, but it definitely won’t be the same. Although, I’m sure he would dump a jar of sprinkles just to make me feel better.

Chocolate Cookies with Hershey's Kisses and holiday sprinkles!

So today’s cookie needed sprinkles. LOTS of them! However, they didn’t make a big mess. After you make your dough, roll it up into balls. Roll each ball into sprinkles (that you poured into a shallow bowl). Bake them up and press the kiss into the center immediately after removing from the oven. And enjoy. While watching movies. Or decorating your Christmas tree. Or whatever holiday tradition YOU enjoy!

Today I’ve also joined up with some of my friends to share some Reese’s and Hershey’s holiday treats. At the end of today’s post, check out some of these delicious recipes for your holiday baking!

Comments & Reviews

  1. I made these for a cookie exchange this weekend. Had I done a test run, I would not have picked these for the exchange as I had to make 18 doz. That being said..when all was said and done they turned out great. The cookie remains chewy, and all who tasted them like them. The reason I would not have chosen them is because they were difficult to roll…dough was very soft….frosting consistency. I had to keep the dough in the refrigerator in 2 separate containers so I could roll 1 dozen, put that dough back in the refrigerator and take out the next container, which did help, but still very messy. I will definitely keep them in my cookie list, just won’t commit to 18 dozen again…lol. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
    BTW…one last comment,….I made a batch using cold butter and didn’t level off the cup of flour to see if it would help the consistency. Not by much, but it did not affect the taste or the texture of the baked cookie. Thanks again.

  2. In the process of making these cookies, they are sooooo gooey. You can’t even roll them Ina ball. I did everything this recipe said to do and it’s for some reason not right. I think the recipe owner needs to go back and try again!

  3. Looked yummy. Could taste them in my mind! However batter not thick enough to roll… Spread out when baked … Tasty but chewy. What went wrong! Also only made two dozen!

  4. The chocolate kiss sprinkle cookies came out very dry – what might I have done wrong? There are no eggs in this recipe so I wondered if something else is not quite right. Thank you.

  5. My favorite Christmas pastime is driving around and looking at Christmas lights”! My parents used to take my brother and I to a nearby neighborhood that had the entire street decorated in lights! It was great!

    These cookies are pretty great too. I love cookie a with the kisses on top. And thee are just perfect for Christmas. Thanks for sharing, Aimee.

  6. Blossom cookies are so much fun to make with friends and family! We used to make them for the baking club around this time of year. So delicious and so adorable! 😀

  7. Peanut butter blossoms are always on cookie platters … there is a reason! The sprinkles, the kisses, it all makes this cookie so pretty!

  8. holiday movies are one of my fave parts of the season 🙂

    I love that you made these “blossoms” extra chocolatey (and festive with sprinkless)!!

  9. These are just so pretty and I love how you packaged them. Sprinkles and Kisses…two needed things for Christmas cookies. We always bake with the kids too…eeeiikk to the mess, but definitely fun memories.

  10. They look so cute with all the sprinkles. Love sprinkles! We try to play more games around Christmas, but we have holiday movies on in the background 🙂

  11. They look so good, Aimee! The Kisses are perfect! You must not have fingerprints b/c I didn’t see a single fingerprint on any of that shiny chocolate 🙂 pinned

  12. These look delicious! I love how colorful they are! For my family, I have incorporated some things that we did when I was little, but also have started some of our own traditions. It’s so fun to have young kids at Christmas! The excitement is so fun to watch!

  13. These look delicious! Such gorgeous photos of them, which isn’t always the easiest thing with chocolate cookies. 🙂

  14. Yes, Peanut Butter Blossoms are my favorite too!! But I like to change it up as well and these look fun to make with the kids by putting out different bowls of sprinkles and letting them go to town…..and yes, my kitchen will be a wreck after making these, but who cares….these look great!! Pinning – I’ll definitely will be making these this week!! 🙂

  15. These are so pretty! Anything with Hershey’s Kisses are always a good idea….and an extra good idea when you load ’em up with sprinkles. Love these!
