  • 1 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour I like Pillsbury gluten-free
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum leave out if your flour already has it
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 egg yolk at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • gluten-free sprinkles optional
  • 26 Hershey’s Kisses unwrapped


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, xanthan gum (leave out if your flour already has it), cocoa powder, and salt.
  • In a large bowl cream the butter on medium-high speed until smooth, about 1 minute. Add the sugar and brown sugar and beat until creamed, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the egg yolk, milk, and pure vanilla extract, and beat on high speed until fully combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl if needed.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until fully combined.
  • Pour the gluten-free sprinkles into a small bowl.
  • Scoop 1 tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball.  (I used a cookie scoop.)
  • Roll cookie dough ball in the sprinkles and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. (Please watch your cookies because every oven is different.)
  • As soon as you bring the cookies out of the oven place the unwrapped Hersey Kisses in the center of each cookie.
  • Allow to cool completely or the Hersey Kisses will flatten.
  • Store in an airtight container.
  • Enjoy!
