These Chocolate Blossom Cookies are truly a chocolate lover’s dream. They’re similar to my Almond Butter Blossoms except these have a chocolate cookie base that is crunchy on the outside yet soft on the inside! Each cookie is topped with a Hershey’s Kiss, the dough requires no chill time and they bake up in just 8 minutes! They’re a great cookie for the holidays or just whenever you’re in the mood for chocolate.

Ingredient Breakdown

All-purpose flour – this gives the cookies structure.

Cocoa powder – gives the cookies their chocolate flavor! I always use natural unsweetened cocoa powder.

Baking soda – helps the cookies spread. Do not use baking powder because it will make the cookies cakey.

Butter – provides flavor and structure. I always recommend using unsalted butter but salted butter works if that’s all you have on hand, just be sure to omit the 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Do not use cold or melted butter.

Granulated sugar and brown sugar – both sugars are necessary for sweetness and texture. I prefer using dark brown sugar for extra chewiness but light brown sugar also works fine!

Vanilla extract and salt – enhances flavor. Always use pure vanilla extract instead of imitation for best flavor.

How To Make Chocolate Blossom Cookies

1. In a small bowl combine all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

2. Use a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment to cream softened butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

3. Add the egg and vanilla extract then mix until just combined. Scrape the sides of the bowl as needed.

4. Add the dry ingredients all at once and mix on low speed until just combined. Do not over mix the dough because it will make the cookies tough.

5. Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop dough then roll in granulated sugar and place on a lined baking sheet (be sure to adjust the baking time if your cookies are smaller/larger).

6. Bake cookies at 350°F for 8 minutes then immediately press a Hershey’s Kiss into the center of each cookie. Let cookies cool on a wire rack before eating. Store Chocolate Blossom Cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

Pro Tips For Chocolate Blossom Cookies

  • Weigh your ingredients using a kitchen scale! Measuring ingredients by volume is not accurate.
  • Don’t over mix the dough! Only mix until the dry ingredients are just combined. Over mixing = more gluten development which means tough cookies. We don’t want any tough cookies here!
  • Bake one tray at a time on the middle oven rack. This ensures that there is even heat circulation.
