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 πŸ™‚Β  My Kiss box is beat up because I swiped it straight from my mom’s, into my suitcase πŸ™‚Β  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.


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 πŸ™‚Β  Enjoy!

    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…

    What a beautiful cookie! Thanks for the perspective with the lego, I was picture it being much larger.

  12. 12

    Oh wow. Wow. What else is there to say?

  13. 13

    Sounds and looks great! Reminds me of some cookies my mom used to make years ago. It was an almond flavored cookie dough with a hershey kiss hidden in the middle. Yum!

  14. 14

    This reminds me of Valentine’s Day in middle school when I bought my “boyfriend” a huge Hershey kiss. Because really, what else do 13 year old’s buy each other on Valentine’s Day?!

    Lauren says:

    I love that you put that Hershey kiss next to a lego man! Haha! {And this is off the charts amazing.}

  16. 16

    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 πŸ™‚

  17. 17

    wow…the cookies definitely look like a bit of heaven πŸ˜€

    Kim B. says:

    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!!
