Chocolate Kisses

Simple recipes for when I would like to do some baking but do not want to do too much work in the kitchen. This simple recipe allows me to make enough of a batch and keep it for my workday afternoons and lazy weekends – perfect for curbing my snack itch and drowsiness and definitely great with a nice cuppa coffee!


  • Milk chocolate: 75g, broken into pieces
  • White chocolate: 75g, broken into pieces
  • Unsalted butter: 115g (1/2 cup)
  • Caster sugar: 60g (4 tbsp)
  • Egg: 2
  • Plain flour: 225g (2 cups)
  • Icing sugar: to dust


  1. Melt milk and white chocolate separately over a water bath. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together butter and sugar till pale and fluffy.
  3. Beat in eggs one at a time till combined.
  4. Sift in flour and stir to combine. Divide mixture into 2 portions.
  5. Mix chocolate separately into each portion. Knead into dough till smooth.
  6. Wrap in film wrap and chill for 1 hr.
  7. Preheat oven at 190 degrees Celsius.
  8. Roll out balls of chocolate and place onto greased baking paper.
  9. Bake 12 min till browned at the edges. Set on rack to cool 15min.
  10. Dust with icing sugar.
  11. Serve as a side with coffee or ice-cream.


  • This cookie is slightly between that of a cake dough texture and a soft cookie. It is not entirely crunchy, but soft especially in the middle portion. Not sure what to make of it, but it definitely serves as a nice accompaniment for coffee and tea!

  • I reduced the sugar quantity by half (original was 8 tbsp) and I do feel this sweetness is just right – not too sweet, so you can dust as much icing sugar on top of them as you want after they are baked.

About 25 – 30 pieces
