Everything You Need To Make Vegan Hershey Kisses

  • Vegan Chocolate Chips

How to Make Vegan Hershey Kisses

Who knew it’d be so simple to make vegan Hershey kisses? Well, it’s simple in that it takes just one ingredient. But it’s not speedy, m’kay? Today’s vegan kisses are more enjoyable to make if you have the time to enjoy the process. Here’s how it goes:

Lay out the molds

First, get out your favorite kiss molds. Here is the bright purple and utterly beautiful kiss mold that I used. Lay your molds flat on a medium baking sheet.

Melt the chocolate

Move over to your chocolate station—you know what I mean—it’s where you melt all of your chocolate for goodies. 😉 Add vegan chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl and melt+stir until smooth. If you prefer to skip the microwave, melt chocolate using the stovetop method with a double boiler. 

Make the kisses

Spoon melted chocolate into a zip bag with the tip trimmed off or a reusable piping bag. Piping is the easiest way to make vegan Hershey kisses. I don’t recommend spooning as that will create a melted chocolate mess monster. Lol. Now, pipe the melted chocolate slowly and carefully into each mold crevice, filling each one to the top.

Chill, pop out, enjoy

Place the sheet of Hershey kisses into the fridge and chill until your kisses are firm (test by popping out just one in the center of the mold –that’ll be the warmest one). When firm, pop out all kisses and enjoy!

Sweet ‘n rich chocolate vegan Hershey kisses made with vegan ingredients!




  1. Lay Hershey kiss molds flat on a medium baking sheet. Here is where I get my Hershey kisses candy molds. Clear some space in the refrigerator for this sheet, you will need it later. Set sheet aside at room temperature.
  2. Melt the chocolate: Use the double boiler method to melt the vegan chocolate chips or do the following. Add chocolate chips and peanut butter (if using) to a microwave-safe bowl. The peanut butter will prevent the chocolate chips from streaking (discoloring) once in solid kiss form.
  3. Heat in 20-second increments until just softened and mostly melted. The chocolate will continue to melt after heating, just make sure to mostly melt it. Stir in between heating increments, until smooth.
  4. Make the kisses: Spoon melted chocolate mixture into a reusable piping bag, making sure to spoon toward the bottom of the bag, where the piping tip is located. This will ensure that most of the chocolate is not wasted. Once all chocolate is in the bag, twist the bag to gather all melted chocolate towards the tip, then snip off the end of the bag, if needed.
  5. Pipe melted chocolate carefully into each cavity of the kisses mold, until it’s filled to the top.
  6. Take a toothpick and poke into the tip of each Hershey kiss (the top peak), then stir the toothpick around a bit. This will pop any unwanted air bubble from forming.
  7. Chill to set the chocolate: Chill this sheet in the refrigerator until firm, about 40 minutes. Make sure kisses are fully firm by popping one out to test—if the tip snaps off, it’s not ready yet.
  8. Pop & Enjoy: Once firm, press the tip of each kiss on the candy mold until a kiss pops out. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.


Storing Instructions: Store kisses in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

Freezing Instructions: Store in an airtight, freezer-friendly container in the freezer for 1-2 months. Allow to thaw for about 10 minutes before enjoying.
