  • 15 oz chocolate cake mix
  • ½ cup butter 1 stick , softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Peppermint chocolate Kisses or regular chocolate Kisses
  • Holiday colored sprinkles optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • In a medium mixing bowl combine the cake mix, butter and egg until fully combined.
  • Use a cookie scoop (or your hands) to scoop approximately 1 tablespoon of dough for each cookie. Use your palms and roll the dough into a balls, placing each ball approximately 2 inches apart from each other on the cookie sheet.
  • If desired, place sprinkles in a small bowl and roll the dough balls through the sprinkles until completely covered.
  • Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove cookies from the oven and allow them to cool slightly before placing the chocolate kiss on top- otherwise the chocolate will melt.
