hershey kisses

With the Holidays approaching, I’ve got such a fun little pie to share with you today that really couldn’t get any easier. I am talking 2 main ingredients!

I decided to use the rest  of my Mint truffle Kisses, but ANY Hershey kiss will work beautifully here. Go grab your favorite flavor and get baking! You are really going to love these, they are adorable and you can pop em’ right in your mouth 🙂

Hope you enjoy! Be sure to follow Picky Palate on Instagram to see sneak peeks of what’s coming soon to the blog!

Kiss Pie Ingredients

Here you have it, some refrigerated pie crust and any Hershey Kisses 🙂

I used these bad boys!

Unroll your pie crust after it’s been thawed and place the first group your kisses around like so.

You’ll cut a 2 1/2- 3 inch circle for each kiss. Does NOT have to be perfect. A few of mine were different sizes and they were all great.

How To Make Kiss Pies

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust thawed
  • 14 Hershey Kisses of choice I used Mint Truffle today 🙂
  • 1 egg white whisked with 1 Tbsp water
  • Powdered sugar for dusting
  • Granulated sugar for sprinkling before baking
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Roll out pie dough onto a lightly floured counter top.  Place 10 kisses around the edges of pie dough, about 2 1/2 inches apart (as in the photo above).  Take a knive and cut a 2 1/2-3 inch circle around kiss.  Fold half of pie dough around top of dough and pinch edge around top of kiss.  (See Photo, step 1).  Now, fold up both sides of remaining dough up to the tip of the kiss pinching edge.  (See Photo, step 2).  Now press together edges and form criss cross as shown in photo, step 3. * *Continue cutting dough around kisses until all dough is used up.  I got about 14 rounds cut when I re-rolled my scraps :)**
  2. Brush all little pies with an egg white wash then sprinkle with granulated sugar.  At 350 degrees, bake for 20-28 minutes or until little pies are golden.  Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.  Dust each with powdered sugar and serve.

    Michaela says:

    I just made these (second batch is still in the oven. I used the chocolate meltaway kisses, and OMG they are sooo gross! I’m going to have to eat them ALL myself… can’t bring myself to subject my family to those! (Kidding of course! They are so good, I’m going to make a trip to the store for more pie crust!)

    I’m pretty sure these couldn’t possibly be any cuter!!

    Love this recipe — it perfectly melds my love for chocolate for my boyfriend’s love of anything in a pie crust! Definitely making this tonight.

    One question — Did you dust the pies with powdered sugar or granulated? It looks like granulated but I think powdered is listed in the ingredients list.


    • 44.1
      Sandee says:

      I put about a teaspoon of sugar in my hand and sprinkled it. Didn’t use the powdered even though it was listed too.

    Gemma says:

    UGH! I had the hardest time making these =/ i am def going to try again, but I used the carmel filled kisses and it leaked out of the pie and onto the pan. i think i might try it again with either regular or filled ones that are so liquidy in the middle =) they did taste pretty good though lol

    • 45.1
      Catherine says:

      Me too. They leaked out everywhere but they were still good. 🙂

    • 45.2
      Stefani says:

      Yes! Don’t use caramel Kisses for this, because the caramel filling boils out the top and makes a mess. Luckily I have a second sheet of pie dough to try with a different flavor Kiss later on!

    You are all about the mint-truffle kisses! Love it!! These cookies are cute, clever, and adorable and I want to try them!!!!

    Catherine says:

    I tried making these the past weekend with caramel kisses and I didn’t have too much success. I had pinched all the sides closed just as you say to do and brushed with the egg white, but once in the oven they all started to break away at the seams and open up. They did not stay closed like yours in the picture. Did this happen to you before when you first tried making them? If so, how did you overcome it? Thanks!

    Rebecca says:

    I made these the other day. Didn’t have any kisses, but I used a few white chocolate chips and a few dried cranberries each and they were LOVELY. I also just used a coffee cup to cut out the circles in the dough which made them uniform and much easier (for me at least) than trying to cut a circle with a knife!

    Thanks for sharing!

  80. 80
    Bridget says:

    Thanks so much! I made these last night, and used a wine glass to cut my circles- it worked like a charm!
    they tasted like fluffy thin-mint cookies, mmmm

  81. 81
    Amanda says:

    These are adorable, but after making 4 batches I have a couple tips:
    1. Don’t use caramel kisses. No matter how well I sealed them they still oozed all over the baking sheet, probably ruining it (its still soaking) and then didn’t taste good.
    2. dab a little of your egg wash on the edges of the circle before folding things up. This makes a much better seal.
    3. Mexican Chocolate variation: Use dark chocolate kisses and before placing your kiss on the crust circle, dip it in the egg wash and then roll it in a mixture of cinnamon, sugar, and a dash of cayenne pepper. (don’t put the cinnamon mixture on the crust itself, it won’t seal properly). This makes a delicious spicy chocolate pie.

    Jennifer says:

    You forgot to add the granulated sugar to the list of ingredients. Minor detail but some may look to see what they need first before viewing/reading the entire picture instructions.

  84. 84
    terri hemmerling says:

    I won’t be making these again. Like some other people who have tried these, majority of my edges came undone. Waste of time and money on my part. Hopefully others will have better luck.

    • 84.1
      Rose says:

      Maybe you left them in a bit too long? Perhaps you could try pushing them together with a fork next time. Don’t get up until you try a few different things.

      Ohh You may even want to make your circle a little bigger so it isn’t such a tight fit. 🙂 I hope you won’t give up!

    • 84.2
      Morgan says:

      I made mine with a little bit bigger circle and had better luck.. and once I pinched everything up I gave it a real good squeeze in the middle to hold everything together. They weren’t too pretty but they held up!

    Ok, I feel dumb, but I tried these tonight and the chocolate kiss didn’t melt in the middle! The pie crust was super crunchy (not delicious flaky) and the kiss kept its shape and didn’t mush down all perfect 🙁 What did I do wrong?!

  115. 115
    Jennifer says:

    Samantha says:

    These looked SO good. I went ahead and tried them today. While it satisfied my sweet tooth, I don’t think they were quite as savory as I was imagining. I cooked them for 15 min and even then I felt the chocolate tasted dry and crumbling instead of melted. It may have been something with my oven though. They did have a great aesthetic appeal, and I might make them to give away at some point. Perhaps I might want to try another type of kiss, as the plain chocolate ended up tasting…plain. Thanks for the idea, though!

    Angela says:

    I love the idea of these cookies but I definitely had some problems with them. First, I found that 20 – 28 minutes was WAY too long; even after just 15 minutes the cookies were very hard. Second, the mint truffle kisses dont melt very well and the center was an awkward texture, almost chalky (I also tried the caramel filled ones which melted out of the pie, and the regular chocolate which were better). Maybe I wasnt using a good pie crust, but the crust taste strongly overwhelmed anything else and it was as if I was biting the last bite of pie that is all crust (i used Pillsbury crust). Did anyone else have these problems or can offer any suggestions. I like the idea and I would like them to work for me.

      I had the same issues as you, Angela!!! I just made these and I’m a little disappointed. This was going to be a treat for my co-workers but I’m not so sure about taking these in now. 🙁

    These are so cute, can’t wait to try them! I think to make them even easier to make, you could use a biscuit cutter. 🙂

    I made these last night and removed them right after they turned brown and candies inside were burnt and dry. Pretty gross.

    Elizabeth says:

    I really like this recipe but had the same problems others had with the hershey kisses not melting at all. The kiss itself was instead extremely hard. Would love make this recipe again… anyone have suggestions on how to get the chocolate to melt?

    Mine all came apart at the seams and were SUPER dry and gross. Very disappointed. Threw all of them away. I was supposed to serve them at a party but I couldn’t have those served… It would have been embarrassing.. Very sad. Very cute, and a great idea.. Just didnt work out for me…

    Pam says:

    Thanks so much for sharing this!! I found it was easier to use a hard plastic cup to cut the little round circles around each kiss : ) I got 14 also by re-rolling my dough. Great recipe idea!!

    Sam says:

    I made these over the weekend and was disappointed:( I used Pillsbury Pie Crust it was dry and the kisses was hard and tasted burnt . Does anyone have any tips or suggestions on what pie crust to use or what to do so its not so dry and melts the kisses?

    Margaret Carrico says:

    I think I would lilke to make them with the slice sugar cookies. Just slice and roll out a little and wrap the kiss.

    Lisa Orner says:

    I just made these. I pinched and pinched….but they all broke open when baking, so they aren’t very pretty for my cookie exchange tomorrow. Any tips or hints? I’m trying another batch, but putting them in the fridge before baking for better results I hope! If there is a secret, please let me know! Thanks!

    April says:

    I made these tonight and they didn’t turn out good. I think I overbaked a bit, but I’m wondering if the type of pie crust you use makes a difference? All I had was the Pilsbury refridgerated crusts, maybe too flaky for this?

  154. 154
    Kristen says:

    I just tried these & they came out rather dry. Any suggestions? I’m no master baker, but I tried to do the egg white on top too & they were just flakey & not as yummy as they look here.

    Heather says:

    I think this would be great to add a mini marshmallow too!

    I think it would be even better if you add a mini marshmallow or two to each one. I am gonna try it myself! Thanks for the easy cookie idea!

    How do the restaurants keep their seafood fresh? Do you ask yourself this question as you eat out? This article aims to answer this question by explaining how seafood is kept fresh.One of the safest and healthiest foods that are found in restaurants are sea foods. Once the food is bought from the market, or brought into the restaurant by a supplier, the simplest way to keep it fresh is to ensure that it remains cold. The most common of seafood freeze at temperatures of around 27 degrees Fahrenheit.:

    i just made these and i have questions. Mine came out a tough, whereas in the photos they look amazingly soft, almost like cookies. Did I over cook them? Oh, and the hershey’s in yours look creamy, melted pefectly, but mine wasn’t at all! Any pointers? Thank you!

    Caity says:

    Hey, I just made these using the kisses with a caramel center and they melted out of the pie crust a little… they’re still awesome but I’d love to know if you know a way to keep this from happening. My oven burns pretty hot, so they were only in about 15 minutes.

    Hello! I made these this afternoon, although with a slight variation. I sprayed them with baking spray before baking instead of the eggwash. The hershey kisses were dry, not melted and creamy. Should they be??!! And if so, the eggwash is the difference? Thanking you in advance!

    Your ingredients call for powdered sugar, but the instructions says to use granulated sugar. Which is correct?

      Powdered and granulated sugar is correct. Granulated gets sprinkled on top before the baking and powdered before serving. We will make the correction. Thanks for noticing.

    Dear Mrs?

    I just checked your recipe for kiss pies and it looks very easy indeed.

    But I still have a little question concerning the ingrediënt. Can or could this work with for example cherries, or can you put a little bit of strawberry jam on the middle of the crust, before you fold it up?

    If so, I’d like to try…

    Thanks very much on forehand for a quick reply!

    Carolyn says:

    I have a question about the “kiss Pies”. Do I bake those on a greased or ungreased cookie sheet?

  205. 205
    Carolyn says:

    And also, can I make these the night before and serve them the next day?

  206. 206
    Lindsey says:

    Love these! I will admit that i tweaked them a bit. I wanted them to hold their shape more so they would come out looking like wontons. Pie crust likes a hotter oven… so 450° for 8-10 min and they look just like how they went in (plus a tiny puff from the crust)!

  207. 207
    Kristen says:

    can you use Gluten free pie dough as well?

  208. 208
    Sandee McCarron says:

    Just made these but instead of cutting around each Kiss, I used my biscuit cutter (much quicker and neater for me)

    I had a few of them “pop” open so that tells me I didn’t seal them properly but I ate them anyway!

    Love quick and easy recipes. I do these with my granddaughters. Less mess and more fun!

    Merry Christmas
