  • 1 box Red Velvet Cake Mix any brand; approx 15-16 ounces
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • About 30 Hershey’s Kisses unwrapped (use your favorites: Hugs, Almond, Plain, Caramel, Cookies 'n Cream, etc.)


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silpat baking mats and set aside.
  • Mix together cake mix, eggs, and butter using a hand mixer or stir it by hand. The dough will be thick.
  • Scoop 1 tablespoon sized balls onto your cookie sheets. Chill for at least 30 minutes. If you bake them right away they'll spread just a bit too much.
  • Bake about 8-10 minutes until tops just start to crack. Err on the side of underdone! Immediately press a Hershey's Kiss onto the top of each cookie. Let cool completely. 
  • Store in an airtight container up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.



Use any flavor cake mix and any flavor Hershey's Kiss!
