How to Make Strawberry Kiss Cookies

Preheat the oven and prepare the cookie sheets – Preheat the oven to 375ºF and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

Combine the wet ingredients – Mix the vegetable oil and the eggs together in a large bowl and mix until combined.

Add in the dry ingredients – Slowly mix in the all-purpose flour as well as the strawberry cake mix.

Make the cookie dough – Add in the tablespoon of milk. Mix the batter just until a cookie dough forms.

Scoop the cookie dough – Scoop the cookies into balls (use a #30 cookie scoop or by using 2 tablespoons).

Roll the cookie dough balls in sugar – Roll the cookie balls into granulated sugar.

Chill the dough – Cover the bowl of cookie dough and chill for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.

Bake – Bake one cookie sheet at a time for 8 to 10 minutes. Keep the remaining cookie dough in the refrigerator between batches.

Add a Hershey Kiss – Immediately out of the oven, gently press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie, pressing just enough to nestle the kisses down into the cookies.

Allow cooling before transferring for storage.

Strawberry Kiss Cookie Variations

Change the cake mix – Swap out the strawberry cake mix for any flavor cake mix: red velvet, lemon, and chocolate are good options.

Switch up the chocolates – These kisses cookies use the traditional Hershey Kisses but they can easily be swapped out for chocolate hearts, Brach’s chocolate stars, or Dove chocolates.

In the actual recipe part, it doesn't have to add in the dry ingredients. Also, it says to scoop the dough and roll in suger THEN it has to chill the dough - shouldn't the dough be chilled first?

Hi Lori! I added mixing the dry ingredients in for step 3. As far as rolling the balls in sugar, you can do it either way but I always roll in sugar first before chilling. When I freeze my cookie dough balls that are rolled in sugar before baking, I do it this way as well. I hope that helps!
