Double Pumpkin Kissed Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I know, another Pumpkin recipe!! I can’t stop baking with pumpkin right now and I must say that I am loving every minute of it. The way the house smells is enough to motivate me to bake all the time 🙂  Cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger are probably my favorite beautiful smells coming from the oven, yum!

Here is a fun, simple cookie with lots of spunk. I am such a sucker every time I pass those Holiday kisses, my hands uncontrollably pick them up and put them in my cart. So to use up my favorite holiday kisses, I created this fun and oh so tasty cookie that you are going to love.

Take a peek and happy Fall baking!

Here’s your line-up. Don’t mind that I forgot the 2 eggs for the photo shoot. Was having a blonde moment!

Cream your butter and sugars, add you eggs, vanilla and pumpkin then toss in the dry ingredients 🙂

I just liked this picture 🙂  I need a wall of just my kitchen aid shots!

You know these bad boys. Unwrap 35 or so 🙂

Love these!

Quarter each little kiss.

Toss in your tasty chocolate chunks….

Along with those kisses!

Break out your muffin top pan, scoop in your dough, press down and bake! (you can also use a normal baking sheet and make tradition cookies with a cookie scoop with this recipe, both delish)


Double Pumpkin Kissed Chocolate Chunk Cookies

2 sticks softened butter

1 Cup granulated sugar

3/4 Cup packed light brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 Tablespoon pure vanilla

1 Cup pumpkin, from can

3 1/4 Cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg

12 oz bag chocolate chunk pieces (or chocolate chips work fine too)

35 or so unwrapped Pumpkin Spice Kisses, quartered

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In stand mixer, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined then add pumpkin.

2. Place flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg into large bowl; mix to combine then slowly add to wet ingredients then chocolate and kisses. Mix only until just combined.

3. If using muffin top pan, scoop 1/4 Cup dough into each muffin top cup that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Press to spread to edges. Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. If using baking sheet, scoop medium cookie scoop of dough onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet, about an inch apart. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes before removing.

24 large muffin top size cookies

4 dozen regular size cookies


Have a great week and weekend, see you soon!

  1. Saw this pinned but the link went to a bad site. Went searching for the true source (thank goodness you’d watermarked the photo!) and am glad I did bc I found a bunch of other yummy-looking recipes as well. Nice site!

    Where in the world do you find the pumpkin spice kisses? I’ve never seen those before and I live near Hershey PA?????

    Jennie these are SOOO good. I am currently devouring a melty warm one right now, making it hard to type. It took me 2 stores and 3 trips down each candy isle to find these kisses, but so worth it. Well done on this concoction!

  4. Karly

    I came across the pumpkin kisses at target eariler in the week, and I remembered seeing your recipe. So I picked up a single bag. Tonight I made the cookies for the first time. I thought they were ah-maz-ing!! A little cakey, wish I would have done them in some type of muffin pan instead of like regular cookies. Wow, you were not lying when you said makes 4 dozen. Dropped some by my neighbors too! Hope they enjoy them. Can’t wait to have some more in the morning with my pumpkin spice coffee! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I made these today for a potluck I’m attending tomorrow. They turned out as yummy as I expected! I found the pumpkin kisses at Target. I took one reviewer’s advice and cut up the kisses first and then put them in the freezer while I mixed up the dough so they wouldn’t get completely smashed when I mixed them in.

    I made these cookies in the fall–they were wonderful! The whole idea of putting kisses in cookies inspired me to make a new cookie last week. I added a bag of quarted Coconut Kisses (an Easter find at Target) and a bunch of chopped walnuts to a basic chocolate chip recipe. I also added about 1/3 cup of white chocolate chips. SO yummy!
    BTW, any houses for sale in your area? I sure would love to be the neighbor that gets all your tasty leftovers! lol

  7. I am so sad these look so yummy and the kisses are around only at Halloween ๐Ÿ™ I found them on amazon I am going to have them send me an email to let me know when they will be available again ๐Ÿ™‚ great recipe thank you!

    AWESOME RECIPE. I made these for a halloween potluck at work and they were a HUGE hit! So, I decided to make them again for a halloween party this past weekend. 4 dozen cookies…gone in a flash. My husband has already requested I make more this week because he didn’t get any at the party!

  9. Awesome! This the most yummier cookie that I’ve ever see in my whole life of blogging. Lol.I love the chocolate ingredients of the cookie. Eating this will make burst chocolates in your mouth. Thanks for sharing this one.

  10. Patty

    Just made a batch of these. I used Rollos instead of the kisses. My Target was out of them.

    They are sooooooooo good!!! Thanks so much!

    Hi!!! I made the cookies last night and they were a hit. Mine came out more of a cake-like consistency though. What was the consistency of your cookies? Your picture definitely looks more cookie-like than cake. I like ANY kind of cookie so it was ok with me (hahaha), I was just curious since mine didn’t look like your pics!

  12. Melanie

    Just made these cookies! They are amazing and I am a hero at work today. People who don’t like pumpkin are even goobling these down

  13. Jen

    I made these and my family LOVED them. They didn’t last more then a day. I brought some to work and gave them to friends. They asked me if it was a secret recipe. I gave them your blog link and told them how you always make such delicious things.

  14. Jess :)

    I made these today and they were so delicious! I didn’t have nutmeg so I substituted pumpkin pie spice and they still turned out awesome. Thanks for the great recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. JennMarie

    I am making these right now, and my house smells fantastic ๐Ÿ™‚
    Where can I find muffintop pans? I have looked everywhere and I can’t find them.

  16. Christel

    Do you find that you have to flatten these guys out? Mine got very tall and poufy. I flattned the 2-4 batches and they came out better. I also got a medium scoop, which I’ve never used before. SO much easier to make cookies.

  17. Andrea

    I literally JUST finished baking these! I love the pumpkin spice kisses, and have stocked up on them for the fall! But unwrapping a quartering them was so tedious! I think I should have stuck them in the freezer for a few minutes before mixing them in, because they mushed a little in the batter. I didn’t have a muffin top pan, so I made regular cookies. I have a tendency to make giant cookies, so they took a little longer to bake.

    They are delicious and I definitely recommend everyone try out this recipe!

  18. I hope I can find the pumpkin kisses ~ can’t always find stuff like this is our remote area. Jenny, I’m voting for you every day. I want you to win! We’re going to have to work hard.

  19. Oh DARN! I tried Harris Teeter, CVS, and Walgreens with no luck. I thought about going to Target but was afraid they wouldn’t have them. For now I will have to make due with just chunks, next time I will find those kisses!

  20. I need to make these now! How fantastic do they look…mmm! I stumbled upon your blog from KevinandAmanda. So glad I found it, can’t wait to try all of the yummy recipes! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Thank you for sharing the recipe. I couldn’t find that kind of Hershey Kisses so I just resorted to the regular Kisses w/ Almonds. I’m sure it’s not as good as yours but it worked out alright. I’m giving some to my MIL for her birthday tomorrow..thanks again!

  22. Rhonda

    These look like they would be right up my alley. I’m gonna make them tomorrow. I got my pumpkin kisses at Target. I’m loving the pumpkin and candy corn kisses (candy corn’s my favorite)!
    ~Thanks for your awesome recipes!

    …Also, it’s because of you that I got my muffin top pan and Hershey kisses. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  23. The first year that pumpkin spice kisses came out, I nearly died. Thought I’d gone to heaven! (and seriously, who thought THAT would happen?) I immediately turned them into cookies, making oatmeal cranberry and pumpkin spice kiss cookies. I like what you’ve done here, but I would totally swap the chocolate chunks for white chocolate chunks. I just can’t seem to wrap my palate around milk chocolate and pumpkin. LOVE the idea though!

  24. Hey Jenny, I almost bought the muffin top pan yesterday when I was at the restaurant supply place… was only $14 and I am kicking myself for not getting now that you posted this yummy recipe. I don’t know how you stay so thin…your recipes are so sinful!! LOL

  25. Jenifer

    Are you kidding me? These look amazing and where do I find these pumpkin kisses at??? I’ve never heard of it before. I am going to make these if I find the chocolate, YUMMMMY! Thanks for sharing.

  26. Love these Jenny! I have some of the Pumpkin Spice Kisses in my cabinet right now and was trying to come up with some ideas to use them. These look delicious!
    And you can never have too many pumpkin recipes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Julie

    Oh my word. I have never seen the kisses. They look delicious, I want to try them. The cookies look great too! Thanks for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Oh my goodness I didn’t even know Pumpkin Spice Kisses existed, but I will be out looking for them today. What a great addition to so many recipes. Thanks for sharing!
