Recipe Notes

  • Once you put the Hershey's Kisses on the cookies, do not touch so they keep their shape.
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container on the counter.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the cake mix, peanut butter, softened butter and egg into a mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until well blended. 
  2. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls then roll them in the 1/4 cup granulated sugar. Place the balls on baking sheets. 
  3. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  4. Take the cookies out of the oven and immediately place a Hershey's Kiss in the center of each cookie. Let the cookies cool a few minutes before removing to cool completely.
