These Cherry Kiss Cookies are adorable and EASY! They’re made with Maraschino Cherries which give them the cherry flavor and pink color, all topped with a milk chocolate Hershey’s Kiss!

How adorable are these Cherry Kiss Cookies? The color alone makes me love them! The dough is easy to make, and they are flavored with the juice from Maraschino cherries, along with chopped cherries too! I’ve topped them with a Milk chocolate candy, making them pure love. Of course they give me all the Valentine’s Day feels, but these are definitely year-round cookies!
These Cherry Kiss Cookies are soft, and sweet with little bits of cherries baked right in. The dough comes together easily, and you can even add a few drops more of pink food coloring if you want to amp up the pinkness!
AND with Hershey’s having so many fun flavors of Hershey’s Kisses these days, the flavor pairings can really be fun!
What Other Flavors of Hershey’s Kiss Can You Use In These Cookies?
- Cherry Cordial. I don’t know if these are available year round, but how perfect would a Cherry Cordial Kiss be in these cookies?
- Hershey’s Hugs. Hugs are white chocolate with milk chocolate stripes and a milk chocolate filling. Perfect paired with cherry!
- Special Dark. Dark Chocolate and cherries are a match made in heaven!
- Milk Chocolate with Almond. There is a small amount of almond extract in the cookie dough, so adding a Kiss with an almond makes perfect sense!

I like to make new desserts because I’m a chef commi 2 I like to learn more thinks
Oh my, these are some of the best cookies!!!! The flavors are wonderful together and that Hershey Kiss on top adds just the right amount of chocolate to the cherry cookie. I am not a big chocolate lover like a lot of people so I was curious about that, but it really was good. I love the little bits of cherry, that’s a huge bonus. Cookies were easy to put together and fun to make, everyone enjoyed them. Definitely have these on the list to make again! Oh…and I love all your ideas of other Kisses to put on top, lots of good combos!
So glad you liked them so much!!
Nummo! My favorite combo. I cannot wait to try these.
I just lost my brother to cancer last Saturday. He was blindsided with the diagnosis two months ago…rare cancer
that destroyed his liver but started in the lung.
It brought me so much comfort to bake for him. He loved your banana crumb top muffins. When nuts became an issue I I ground them in his favorite cookie…Russian Tea Cakes. We shared a passion for good sweets.
