Gluten-Free Chocolate Kiss Cookies & Cookies for Kids' Cancer
Gluten-Free Chocolate Kiss Cookies are a twist to the traditional blossom cookie. Where decadent chocolate cookies, rolled in sprinkles, collide with Hershey Kisses.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 26 cookies
- 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.
