Carefully remove wrappers from chocolate Kisses and set aside on a plate. This may be done in small batches.
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop heaping balls of dough. Shape into smooth 1-inch balls. Roll in sanding sugar. Space 2-inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Immediately press an unwrapped chocolate Kiss into each cookie. Immediately transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely and allow chocolate to set.
Once chocolate has completely set, cookies may be stored in an airtight container.
