Giant pumpkin chocolate snickerdoodles rolled in sugar and spices are a perfect treat for a rainy, Fall afternoon! Oh… did I mention there’s a SURPRISE baked inside each cookie?
When I saw the bags of Hershey’s Pumpkin Spice Kisses at the Commissary I knew I had to snatch up a couple bags immediately. Seasonal candy like that is hard to come by here in Germany. These kisses are a pumpkin spice flavored milk chocolate kiss that is full of delicious Fall flavor.
But… what was I going to make with these candies? I’d already done a pumpkin spice cupcake… so I knew I didn’t need to make another cupcake. I’d also already made pumpkin snickerdooles and pumpkin chocoalte chip cookies. *humph*
Wait… how about pumpkin & chocolate together in a cookie? Since these kisses were pumpkin and chocolate… that would be a perfect combination.
I knew though that I couldn’t do a standard “blossom” cookie for these. Those are so played out. It’s just way too easy to pop the Kiss on top of the cookie. I needed something better.
SURPRISE INSIDE! Yes!!!
So… I came up with these Pumpkin Chocolate Snickerdooles with a Surprise Kiss Inside! They are a light as air cookie that is full of chocolate, spice and pumpkin flavor. Each bite is so tender, rich and delicious.
You think you love the cookie from the moment you take your first bite. But then, you take a bite of the SURPRISE INSIDE… and BAM! an explosion of flavor in your mouth. Seriously. I’ve eaten at least a dozen of these cookies because those 2 bites with the Hershey’s Kiss inside are pure joy. Heaven. So damn good!
These cookies would be perfect at a party, in your kids lunch, or even a potluck at work…. because the excitement of watching the person bite into the center of the cookie and find that Hershey Pumpkin Kiss surprise inside is PRICELESS!
PS… I made a short little video to go along with this recipe! The Kisses were a bit of a challenge to get into the middle of the sticky dough. Let me know what you think and if it was helpful for you!
