These Valentine Chocolate Crinkle Kiss Cookies are really quite good. They have such a deep chocolate flavor and the cookie is just slightly crispy on the outside but it is still soft enough to be bendable. These were an unexpected gem!
I found these cookies & cream hearts at a Walgreens and had to find some recipe to use them in I’ve been “kissing” things right and left if seems like these days. Any “kiss” cookie you can add a small peanut butter cup, chocolate, caramel covered chocolate of whatever. It’s so much fun to add these to a cookie.
Let me show you how to make these Valentine Chocolate Crinkle Kiss Cookies I adapted from AllRecipes.

These Valentine Chocolate Crinkle Kiss Cookies are really quite good.

||Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Prepare your baking pan by using an ungreased cookie sheet, silicone, or parchment paper lined cookie sheet (see post for outcome for each option). |
||In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together and set the dry mixture aside. |
||In large mixing bowl using a hand mixer (or using a stand mixer), beat together the granulated sugar butter until it is fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time and then the vanilla extract. Alternatively you can mix vigorously with wooden spoon. Mix gently or stir in dry mixture. |
||Shape the cookie dough into about 1- 1 ½ -inch balls. Gently roll the balls in a bowl of granulated sugar. Place them about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet (I use a parchment lined baking sheet). |
||Bake them for 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are starting to get light brown. |
||Remove the pan from the oven and immediately press 1 cookies & cream heart OR chocolate candy in center of each cookie. Let them rest directly on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes (to help firm up so they don’t fall apart when you remove them) and then remove the cookies gently from cookie sheet to wire rack. |
||Store in an airtight container for up to a week or freeze in a freezer bag or container for a couple months. |
