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


  • 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 :)**
  • 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.

    I always make dessert for our Sunday lunch at my mom’s house. My niece is pregnant and craves chocolate. I give her the choice of what kind of dessert I bring, she wants chocolate. I can’t wait to place these in front of her tomorrow.

  2. Joyce

    Kisses Pies, picture shows granulated sugar? But recipe states powdered sugar. I’m guessing either would work? Great treat idea!! Thank you.

  3. I?m not positive the place you are getting your info, but good topic. I must spend some time learning much more or figuring out more. Thank you for magnificent information I used to be on the lookout for this info for my mission.

  4. Marsha

    I tried the kiss pies for our holiday buffet and I must say they were horrible. I wound up tossing the entire batch.

  5. Sandee McCarron

    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

  6. Lindsey

    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)!

  7. I’m very pleased to find this site. I wanted to thank you for your time for this particularly wonderful read!!
    I definitely really liked every bit of it and i also have you saved to fav to see new information in your web site.

  8. 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!

  9. Lindsey

    I’m guessing you don’t need to line the tray with foil or even spray it with non-stick spray? They won’t stick to the bottom of the tray?

    1. 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.

    1. Priscilla, we did not try to freeze them so I don’t know the answer. I would take a few aside and freeze them to see how it works. Feel free to comment back if it worked or not. 🙂

  10. Barbara

    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!

  11. Caity

    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.

  12. sylvia

    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!

    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 can’t wait to try these; they look so yummy. Have you thought about using biscuit cutter to make the circles instead of cutting with a knife?

  15. Ashley

    These are precious! I have been wanting to make these for weeks now, just havent found the time, but they are in the oven now! Cant wait to taste them! Thanks for sharing this GREAT recipe! I love it!

  16. debbie leach

    I made these with my 5 year old instead of a knife i used a glass to cut the dough (better and safer for little hands) they turned out great love this receipe

  17. Heather

    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!

  18. Kristen

    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.

  19. 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?

  20. alene

    I thought this looked like a good treat, but it’s really not. It took a long time to make and I was SUPER disappointed.

  21. Lisa Orner

    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!

  22. Margaret Carrico

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

  23. Courtney

    Update: The kisses didn’t melt much but they are still pretty soft. The Reese’s cups, however…oh. my. god. SOOO good!

  24. Courtney

    These are in my oven right now. I used mini Reese’s cups in half of them. They smell so good! I’m so excited! Thanks for posting this 🙂

  25. Sam

    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?

  26. 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!!

  27. Janice Martin

    These are perfect for my weekly baking/craft activity with my younger grandchildren. They will love them and will easily be able to “make them by myself.”

  28. Mimi

    A cookie cutter would make this project go much faster, I think. Am going to try it. Love this idea and can hardly wait to try it.

  29. Emily

    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…

  30. Elizabeth

    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?

  31. Dave

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

  32. Bonnie B

    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. 🙂

  33. Angela

    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.

    1. Kimberley

      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. 🙁

  34. Pam

    I will be making these for our Christmas party and will package them to go.If they don’t have room to eat them with all the other things.They will have a snack for later.Thanks great idea!

  35. Samantha

    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!

  36. Wendy

    I did the caramel ones as well. It would be good to mention up top they will leak. Have you lowered the temp or anything to get them to ooze less. Thanks though; I really like these and will try them again.

  37. Alma King

    Can you make these ahead of time and store them. Or would they be better made right befor you eat them. I am planning to have them at a wedding rehearsal? Wanted to make a day a head.

  38. Have you ever tries using chocolate chips? I found a link on Pinterest on my PHONE and it looked like chocolate chips! So I’m gonna give it a whirl! Thy will be mini!!

  39. Jennifer

    Just made these – super yummy and very easy! I would just suggest that you make sure your pie crusts are very well sealed when you put them in the oven, because a couple of mine weren’t and they split right open.

  40. Tia S.

    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?!

  41. Justoleme

    I just wanna say that I’m amazed that a lot of the readers have leftover KISSES. I didn’t know there was such! 🙂

  42. I featured this recipe today on my blog at Please check out my blog and hopefully you will like the other recipes too. Hope this brings you lot of traffic.

  43. Stephanie

    I am going to make these for Valentine’s treats. Do you bake them on a greased cookie sheet, or ungreased? Thanks!

  44. Jane

    These are so cute! Saw them on a friend’s Pinterest, then tracked them back to you – so clever! Will definitely make some 🙂

  45. RglBrat

    I am pinning this awesome recipe on my Pinterest site but I am so jealous of the little forks!!! I WANT those!!! hahaha

  46. rita

    Question. When baking these cute pies. I don’t have a pad that is pictured. Can I use parchment paper or bake on ungreased pan?

  47. Mandy W

    My 7 year old helped me make these a few minutes ago. They turned out very good with the exception of a few that opened up. We made half mint truffle kisses and half special dark. Pretty tasty!

  48. Suzanne

    I tried to thaw frozen pie crusts for this, but they just fell apart. Looks like you really do need the refrigerated ones.

  49. Bert in Rice, WA

    My first batch is in the oven right now. They are destined for a potluck, but I can see we’ll have to destroy ;o) a couple of prototypes that I did not seal well enough. They are unfolding as they cook.

  50. Trev

    Alright so i’m pretty sure i’m the only guy that’s gotten on here and attempted to make these… Somehow the kisses didn’t melt for us? If anyone’s got ideas on what i could’ve done wrong let me know! in my head i had pictured biting into the pie and having chocolate ooze out the sides… 🙁

  51. terri hemmerling

    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.

    1. Rose

      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!

    2. Morgan

      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!

  52. Rose

    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.

    Your illustrated recipe is fantastic! Thank you for teaching us…I am making these for our Christmas party this year.

  53. Jennifer

    Thinking about making these for teacher gifts. Any tips on storing them? How long do you think they would stay good?
    Thanks for the fantastic idea!

  54. Amanda

    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.

  55. Bridget

    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

  56. Rebecca

    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!

  57. British American

    Going to make these twice this week – once for a ladies party at church and once for my 4 year old’s class party. Thanks for the idea! 🙂

  58. Brittany

    Wow, those look so good! I’m not a fan of Hershey’s Kisses but I bet these would be great with those new mini Reese’s cups! Thanks for the recipe!

  59. Catherine

    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!

  60. I saw this on Pinterest and thought it was a great recipe. I also have a cooking blog in which I not only post the ingredients but also do a video for each recipe. With your permission I would love to do this recipe for my blog and youtube channel. Of course I would give you credit for where I saw it and place your blog address on my blog.

    Please let me know if this okay with you. Thank you.

  61. Joanne

    AMAZING!! THANK YOUU so much! i tried to make these today and they were delicious and my whole family loves them. im definitely gonna make these more often.

  62. Cooper

    Great fun with my 4 yr old making these! I used a mason jar as my circle cutter. Worked great! I got 14 with out using the scrapes (I like to make cinnamon sugar crisps with these, and daughter was nibbling on them as we went.) Thank you so much for your ideas!

  63. Janelle

    I love all of your stuff and I try to do at least one of your recipes a week, now I think I need to start hitting the gym and sharing my food with neighbors.

  64. Suzanne

    My son helped me make these tonight. We used the Cookies and Cream kisses. I wouldn’t recommend those as they had almost no flavor at all. =( Next time I’ll try something much more chocolatey!

  65. toriisen

    I just found your site yesterday and love it! You’ve made my tummy very happy. Just wondering where di you find that cake stand? So cute!

  66. 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

    1. Stefani

      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!

  67. Katie J

    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.


    1. Sandee

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

  68. Eve

    Just finished our first batch! Used regular kisses and a few of the candy cane Kisses, and they came out great! I LOVE pie crust so the chocolate on the inside is a total bonus! =) Thanks, I love these quick easy recipes!!

  69. 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!)

  70. Stephanie

    Seriously- you’re the greatest. I’ve been pondering what to do with my leftover holiday kisses. This is absolutely PERFECT and exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!!!

  71. Adorable! But woman – you NEED a biscuit cutter. Seriously? A knife to cut out all those circles?
    Beyond that, you could stand to gain 50 pounds or so. Just sayin.
    Great post!

  72. Lori Finch

    What a perfect idea! Chocolate anything is perfect. I’ve been wanting to use those pie crusts in my fridge…thanks for another great idea! On my way to bake them now!

  73. Oh my goodness, cuteness overload! I need to finally buckle down and bake something today for my neighbors- maybe I’ll do these, they’re darling! (Also, had to laugh at the comment about talking a picture while sprinkling sugar with the other hand. Totally been there! lol)

    1. The things we do to try and get our photos! Lol! Hope you have a great Christmas!! When are we planning our N’awleans trip? I wanna go so bad 🙂

  74. I love this! I featured it on my site today! Come grab my NEW button – it’s so pretty! 🙂 Hope you have a blessed day!
