Giant Hershey Kiss Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who would have thought my crazy idea of stuffing a giant Hershey Kiss inside of my cookie dough would turn out so fabulous! I totally expected the kiss to still be a kiss inside, but it turned into what I like to call a chocolate molten cookie. The chocolate oozed out like a dream!

Now…. I swiped the giant Kiss from my mom’s house over Christmas Break but I am assuming with Valentines Day right around the corner that you can still find these giant kisses at your local drug stores, grocery stores, Targets etc… I have spotted them specifically in Walgreens.

Alright enough talking for me, let’s take a look!

First things first. The dough I used was chilled overnight. I suggest doing the same so the cookie holds it’s shape around the kiss ๐Ÿ™‚  My Kiss box is beat up because I swiped it straight from my mom’s, into my suitcase ๐Ÿ™‚  Thanks Mona!!

It’s kinda hard to see how big the kiss really is, so I had my little guy go grab a Lego dude. Gives you a better idea. I’d say it’s about 2 1/2 inches tall.

Love!

Here we go….cookie dough on the bottom….

Cookie Dough around sides and top.

Seal it up ever so gently and time to bake!

Perfection! See the tip of the Kiss? So fun.

Had I waited for the cookie to cool completely I kinda think the kiss would have held it’s shape, however who cares when you have this fabulous milk chocolate running out?! I only made one giant cookie, but am assuming you could get about 12 giant cookies. You could use the regular kisses for a smaller, equally as adorable cookie ๐Ÿ™‚  Enjoy!

  1. I love the fact that you used a little lego man to give us an idea of perspective – you’re hilarious! I can’t get over that first picture of the cookies though and the way the chocolate oozes out…

  2. Cookies with melted chocolate centers are the best. But the Hersheys drops are too sweet to me, especially since you add almost a cup of brown sugar to the dough! I’d use a bitter dark chocolate inside for a nice contrast. It’s just me ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I can eat this all by myself ๐Ÿ˜€
    I was waiting for it’s recipe ever since you posted the picture on fb… Thank you so much, you made my day ๐Ÿ™‚

    My son saw this & just asked me if I’d make them…um, YES!! I’m not an out of the box thinker, so would’ve never thought about wrapping the dough around a hershey kiss or a rolo or all those minuature candies they now have! The possibilities are endless! LOVE this!!

  5. Cor, just stunbled on your blog! What a great idea! Am definately going to have a go at making these – they may turn out a little different as not sure we get Kisses over here in Blighty, but blimey – I’ll find something to melt! Zoe

  6. I can’t imagine waiting even two hours for this cookie dough to chill; well,maybe if I was eating up the kisses in the meantime! I’ve pinned your site to my Pinterest.com and you’re been “repinned” more than anything else.

  7. Oh my, these seriously look like a piece of died-and-gone-to-heaven!
    I usually decorate sugar cookies, but to eat, my fave kind is chocolate chip… *This* is definitely a version I’m trying next.

    OMG, this looks unbelievable!!! I’m wondering if you can get the same effect with smaller candy kisses?
    Found your website from Recipe Girl on Pinterest. Love it!

    When you say adjust the cooking time for regular-kisses, which direction do you mean: more, or less? Sorry. Looking forward to making these, and want to make sure I get it right!

    Do you think it would work with peanut butter cookie dough then rolled in sugar? Inside out peanut butter blossom!!
