Chocolate Kiss Cookies

Chocolate kiss cookies, also known as peanut butter blossom cookies, are a classic treat featuring a soft peanut butter cookie base topped with a chocolate kiss. Here’s a simple recipe to make them at home:


  • – 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • – 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • – 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • – 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • – 1 large egg
  • – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • – 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • – 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • – 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • – About 36 chocolate kisses, unwrapped


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

3. Add the egg and vanilla extract to the peanut butter mixture, and beat until well combined.

4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a dough forms.

6. Shape the dough into tablespoon-sized balls and place them 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.

7. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden brown.

8. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie, pressing down gently until the edges crack.

9. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.

10. Once cooled, store the chocolate kiss cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.

11. Enjoy these classic and irresistible treats with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee!

These chocolate kiss cookies are perfect for holidays, bake sales, or anytime you’re craving a sweet and satisfying snack. They’re easy to make and always a hit with kids and adults alike. Enjoy!
