Hugs and Kisses Chocolate Chunk Sheet Pan Cookie

This sheet pan cookie will ensure there's enough sweetness to go around this Valentine's (or any!) Day. We started with a classic chocolate chunk cookie, loved it up with Hershey's hugs and kisses pieces for an extra dose of the good stuff. The subtly sweet cookie is thick, crumbly, and packs a chocolate punch thanks to the chunks mingling throughout. It’s a satisfying and comforting dessert for any occasion, really, but we think it would slay at the next bake sale or cookie swap. The best part? Besides all the chocolate, this big cookie is a synch to throw together and easily feeds a crowd. No complaints if you serve it warm with ice cream.

Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons kosher salt

  • 3 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • 1 ¼ cups packed light brown sugar

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped (about 2 cups)

  • 4 ounces Hershey’s hugs, unwrapped 

  • 4 ounces Hershey’s kisses, unwrapped 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, using and electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars, starting on low and then raising to medium-high, until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.

  4. Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just combined (do not overmix) and scraping down sides of the bowl, as needed. Fold in the chopped chocolate and mix until evenly incorporated.

  5. Spread dough into prepared baking sheet using a spatula (but press with your hands to help get in the corners) all the way to the edges of the pan.

  6. Bake on center rack until light golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Scatter hugs and kisses evenly over top and return to oven until cookie edges are brown, top is golden, and hugs and kisses are half melted, 8 to 10 minutes more.

  7. Let cool and cut into 24 rectangles.
