Blossom Cookies

Blossom Cookies are classically a cookie with a Hershey Kiss placed on top of the cookie right as they come out of the oven. There are many variations on the Blossom Cookie, like my Chocolate Peppermint Blossom Cookie or the classic Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies. 

This Chocolate Blossom Cookie is one of my favorite versions. A delicious, soft and chewy chocolate cookie with a Hershey kiss in the middle makes for a delicious Valentine’s day cookie to add to your holiday party or present to a loved one, but chocolate is a timeless classic that tastes great throughout the year.

How many times do you just wish you had something chocolatey to help satisfy a craving or sweet tooth? This easy cookie recipe can help you keep sane and the cravings at bay.

How to Make Blossom Cookies

Making perfect blossom cookies are a breeze with my tips below. Read through them prior to baking and make these like a pro!

  • The cookie dough will be soft, so don’t let that scare you! Don’t add any more flour. 😉 
  • To achieve a smooth finish on the baked cookies, roll the dough in your hand and make a smooth ball before arranging on the cookie sheet. Rough cookie dough will make rough looking cookies.
  • Unwrap the kisses while the cookies are in the oven, you’ll want to gently place those on top of the cookies right after they come out of the oven. 
  • Lastly, let those cookies cool completely (after sneaking one, of course) before moving and storing them.

Can You Freeze Chocolate Blossom Cookies?

Yes. After your cookies have completely cooled, you can keep them stored inside of a Ziploc style bag and keep them in the freezer until you’re ready to eat them. Then simply take one (or more) out and let them come to room temperature (about 10 minutes) before eating.

How to Store Chocolate Blossom Cookies

After the cookies have cooled completely, the Hershey kisses will no longer be soft and melt to the touch. This makes them much easier to store because there are a lot fewer risks for messes to happen. You can keep the cookies stored inside of a Ziploc bag or in a cookie jar. Any airtight container will work well for these cookies at normal room temperature.

    Thank you SO very much for this recipe, Karli! I’ve been looking for a chocolate blossom cookie recipe, but most of them turn out too gummy. Your recipe has great flavor and doesn’t turn out like under-done brownies. My Christmas baking plans are saved, thanks to you!

    The cookies turned out good, but I didn’t use 1 TBSP of vanilla. I used a tsp. I also rolled them in some sugar before baking.
