Chocolate Coconut Kiss Cookies

Recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod


  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 7 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1/3 cup coconut
  • Hershey's chocolate coconut kisses
  • Additional coconut for sprinkling on cookies


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350ºF; line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or line with Silpats.
  • 2. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  • 3. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat; stir in cocoa powder and sugars. The mixture will be course and look like sand. Add yogurt, vanilla, and coconut extract, stirring to combine.
  • 4. Add flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Stir in coconut. Drop tablespoons of dough about 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets.
  • 5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until almost set. Cool on pans 2 to 3 minutes or until firm. Move cookies to a cooling rack. Press a chocolate coconut kiss in the center of each cookie and sprinkle with coconut. Let cookies cool completely.
  • *Note-if you can't find coconut creme kisses, use regular chocolate kisses or another chocolate coconut candy. The cookies are also good without the kisses.
