Here is the sentence:

Dennis tried to be thoughtful and generous, yet Malinda refused to give him not only a kiss good night but also a single chocolate from the nut and caramel sampler.

When you use not only ... but also, you must maintain parallel structure. A kiss good night, a noun phrase, follows not only, so a single chocolate, another noun phrase, is all that must come after but also. Nice choice!
