  • Worsted weight yarn in grey and white
  • 2.75mm crochet hook (size C) or hook of your choice
  • Two 6mm safety eyes
  • Black embroidery thread for the mouth
  • Polyfil stuffing
  • Yarn needle
  • Stitch marker (optional)

Stitches and Abbreviations:

  • R - round
  • Ch - chain 
  • Sc - single crochet
  • St - stitch
  • Sts - stitches
  • BLO - Back Loops Only
  • Inc - increase
  • Dec - decrease


  • This pattern is worked in continuous rounds. Do not join. 
  • A stitch marker is recommended to help keep track of rounds.
  • The hershey kiss can be started with a magic circle for a tighter starting hole. 
  • Invisible decrease is highly recommended. 

With Gray:

R1: Ch 2 and sc 6 in second ch from hook (6)

R2: Inc in each st (12)

R3: *Inc, sc in next st* repeat 6x (18)

R4: In BLO, *Inc, sc in next 2 sts* repeat 6x (24)

R5 - R7: (3 rounds) In both loops, sc in each st (24)

Pause here to attach eyes between rounds 6 and 7 with 2 sts between eyes. Add a smile in the round below with embroidery thread. The key here is to keep the smile small.

R8: *Dec, sc in next 2 sts* repeat 6x (18)

R9: *Dec, sc in next st* repeat 6x (12)

R10 - 11: (2 rounds) Sc in each st  (12)

Pause here to start stuffing your kiss. I like to use the end of my crochet hook to push the stuffing in. Continue stuffing as you close up the kiss. 

R12: *Dec, sc in next 2 sts* repeat 3x (9)

R13: *Dec, sc in next st* repeat 3x (6)

R14: Sc in each st (6)

Cut yarn, leaving 9 inch tail. Leave top open.

With White:

Leave 6 inch starting tail, and Chain 8. 

Sc in 3rd st from hook and in next 5 sts. Ch 1 extra on the end to even out both sides. Pull yarn through your loop. 

Thread both starting and ending white tails onto yarn needle. Going through the top hole of the kiss, pull white piece through so 1 or 2 stitches of the white are inside the grey bottom part. Pull tail through the side of the kiss and trim off extra yarn.

Thread grey yarn onto your yarn needle and close up top hole by weaving through the front loops of each sc from Round 14. Pull tight to close, and weave the tail through both grey and white parts a few times for extra security.

Pull gray tail through the kiss and trim off extra yarn.

All done! Try making chocolate kisses in different colors for different holidays!
