Chocolate Peppermint Kiss Cookies are chewy chocolate cookies topped with a peppermint candy Hershey’s Kiss.

Several Chocolate Cookies with three cookies stacked on top of one another and a Hershey's peppermint kiss in the center of each cookie.

Who’s ready for CHRISTMAS?! Is your holiday baking done, or do you have room for one more awesome cookie recipe?! So far this season I’ve made my favorite Mint Brownies, Graham Cracker Toffee Bars, Christmas Cornflake Wreaths and Homemade Caramels.

Oh, and I can’t forget Homemade Eggnog, because we’ve had two batches of that too.

One Chocolate Peppermint Kiss Cookies with a bite taken out of it.

Some of my favorite holiday cookies include these Soft and Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies!

And, yes, these Chocolate Peppermint Kiss Cookies are also at the TOP of my list! They are amazing hot from the oven, but they freeze amazingly well also! You could make the dough and freeze it, of just freeze the cookies after they’re baked and cool.

This is my version of the perfect chocolate cookie–a little bit crisp on the outside and super soft on the inside. Then add a little peppermint kiss for the perfect festive touch.
