  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • tsp vanilla extract
  • cup all-purpose flour spooned & leveled
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp table salt
  • 24 Hershey Kiss chocolate candies


  • ½ cup granulated sugar you can use sanding sugar in any color if desired


  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter for about 1 minute on high until creamy.
  • Slowly mix in the granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat until creamy and smooth.
  • Beat in the egg and then increase the speed to high and continue beating for about 1 minute, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Add in the peanut butter and vanilla extract, mixing on high until combined.
  • Slowly mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt until just combined.
  • Cover and refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes or up to 1 day.
  • Once the dough is chilled, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners.
  • Scoop the dough into tablespoon-sized portions and roll between your hands to form a smooth ball.
  • Roll the ball of dough in the granulated sugar to coat and place on the prepared baking sheet about 2" apart.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until the tops of the cookies begin to crack slightly.
  • While the cookies are baking, unwrap all of the Hershey kisses.
  • When you remove the cookies from the oven, immediately press 1 kiss candy into the tops of each cookie.
  • Use a thin spatula and transfer the cookies to a small plate and immediately place it in the refrigerator or freezer to keep the warm cookies from melting the chocolate kisses too much.
  • Remove the cookies from chilling after 10 minutes.
