Chocolate Kissed Macaroons

Someone recently asked for this recipe so I thought I’d type it up for everyone and share the wealth. Enjoy!

Chocolate Kissed Macaroons

  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 3oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 2 tsp orange juice
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 5 cups sweetened coconut flakes
  • 8oz milk chocolate Hershey’s Kisses


  1. Beat butter, cream cheese, and sugar in large bowl until well blended. Add egg yolk, almond extract, and orange juice; beat well. Add baking powder, salt, and flour beating until well blended. Stir in 3 cups coconut.
  2. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to handle. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll balls in remaining coconut. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 12 minutes or until lightly browned. While cookies are baking, remove wrappers from enough Hershey’s Kisses (1 per cookie — try not to eat too many of the remainders!). Remove cookies from oven; immediately press Kiss on top of each cookie. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Makes ~26 cookies.
