I love the Peppermint Kisses candies. They look so cute and you can really taste the candy cane flavor. So this year instead of making cookies with chocolate Kisses I wanted to use the Peppermint Kisses in a cookie. I kept it very simple and just put them on top of sugar cookies as they came out of the oven. The resulting cookie was delicious and super easy to make. If you aren’t into baking you could use refrigerated dough and end up with a very easy dessert to take for a party or cookie exchange.
I used a basic Sugar Cookie recipe from the King Arthur Baking Cookbook, with a few modifications.
Peppermint Kiss Sugar Cookies
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup buttermilk or sour milk
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 cups Flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 bag Peppermint Kisses
- Preheat oven to 350. Mix together the butter and sugar till smooth. Add the buttermilk or sour milk and vanilla and mix well.
- Add in the nutmeg, flour, baking soda and salt and mix until well combined.
- Form the dough into balls and put on a greased baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes.
- While the cookies are baking unwrap the Kisses. Press them into the cookies when they come out of the oven, before taking them off the tray. Then cool them on wire racks.

Great idea! I love it and just may do this too. Thanks for sharing!
Those cookies look so festive! I need to use that idea with a gluten free cookie recipe!
Cute! We have those Kisses just laying around- time to put them to good use!
Those are so tempting! I’m a big fan of anything peppermint flavored! 🙂
Delicious! So tempting to eat them all!
I am addicted to these, which is odd since I am not a fan of white chocolate!
Me too! I am not a big fan of either peppermint or white chocolate separately, but I love these candies. The combination just works.
Um, where have I been–I had NO IDEA they made Peppermint Kisses! Ooh, I bet they’re so good, especially on top of a cookie! 😀
I have never had peppermint kisses but these cookies look so scute!
I think I am going to make these for Christmas. They look great and not alot of work
Me and my daughter always make christmas cookies like these every year. We use broken candy cane pieces as a topping. They come out well if the pieces aren’t too big.
