  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar for rolling
  • 40 chocolate kisses unwrapped


  • In a large bowl, mix brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, softened butter and peanut butter using a hand mixer. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, just for a couple of minutes.
  • Add in the egg and vanilla, beat until well mixed. Add flour, baking soda, and salt, and beat on low until fully combined.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with a cookie mat or parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add the additional 1/2 cup granulated sugar to a small bowl, and set aside.
  • Shape 1 1/2 Tablespoons of cookie dough into a 1 inch ball using your hands. Gently roll balls in the bowl of granulated sugar to coat on all sides. Place approximately 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet and bake 9-10 minutes, until lightly brown and tops of cookies look a bit cracked.
  • Press a Hershey chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie, then remove to a cooling rack to continue cooling.
