You’ll want to print out this recipe and save it for the holidays. Peppermint Kiss Cookies are the BEST Christmas cookie recipe!

Most people think of kiss cookies being called peanut butter blossoms (which we also adore), but there is no peanut butter in this cookie. This is a soft and chewy sugar cookie that is perfect for holding a delicious white chocolate peppermint kiss in the center.

When the fall holidays arrive, the Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses will appear in your local grocery stores. These little gems taste so good tucked into the middle of these sugar cookies.

How To Make Hershey Kiss Cookies

The sugar cookie dough is rolled into balls and then tossed in a little bit of granulated sugar.

The baked cookies are topped with a Candy Cane Kiss while still warm. Then they’re placed into the refrigerator to set the chocolate so it doesn’t melt into the cookie.  They’re such a pretty cookie for the holidays and for gift giving.

Peppermint Kiss Cookies are great make-ahead cookies. These cookies freeze well… so you can take them out for your Holiday cookie platters when ready for use.

Make sure you let the cookies completely cool and the chocolate is set before packaging these on trays, cans, etc… for gifts. You will want the chocolate to harden back up so it won’t get on other cookies and mess up how pretty these cookies look.

These are always such a huge hit with everyone and definitely on our top 5 Best Christmas Cookie Recipe EVER!

  1. Would love to save this recipe on my face book time line. How do you save it .

  2. I am going to add this to this years Christmas cookie ‘must make’ list. However, should the amount of milk be 2 tablespoons, not 22?

  3. Delicious cookies in a jiffy. Less work more fun.Parveen Umar

  4. 22 T of milk??? Is this a typo?
