  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter I use Jiff’s
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar plus more for rolling
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 26 milk chocolate kisses or stars unwrapped (I personally love Brach’s Milk Chocolate Stars)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone mat. Set aside.
  • Place some granulated sugar into a medium sized bowl and set aside.
  • Place butter, peanut butter, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, the egg, and vanilla extract into a large bowl.
  • Using a hand mixer, beat together until well combined.
  • Add in flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • Mix, again, until combined.
  • Use a medium cookie scoop to scoop the dough into a ball (you'll make about 26 cookies) and drop the cookie dough ball into the bowl of sugar.
  • Gently roll it around in the sugar until the dough is fully coated.
  • Place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Repeat with remaining dough, I like baking 12 at a time, so they don't spread into each other.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.
  • The dough will NOT look very golden. Don’t over bake.
  • Remove from oven and gently press a Hershey’s kiss into the center of the cookie.
  • Repeat with remaining cookies.
  • Cool slightly before removing from the baking sheet.
  • Cool completely on a wire rack before storing them in a sealed Tupperware container.
  • Repeat with remaining dough (you’re making 26 TOTAL cookies).
  • Enjoy!

*Some people have trouble with cookies spreading, so I’d suggest doing a test batch of 1 or 2 cookies to see if they spread. If they DO, chill the dough cookie for 30 minutes to an hour.
