Convert Snap Closing cabinet hinges to soft close

I have a kitchen full of these hinges and would like to change them out for soft closing, any suggestions?

Soft closing surface mount may be hard find. Most must be sunk into the door.
I would call ROCKLER.com. If they can't get it, it can't be had.

If your doors are 3/4 thick you could prep them for 35mm cup (euro) hinges, like Blum.

But those notches in your doors will be an eyesore. I guess if you measured carefully, you could leave the existing hinges in place and just put the cup hinges above or below them. But that would be kind of odd.

Talked with Rockler, nice people. Looks like there is no direct replacement only a complete change out and thats way too many hinges...

Thanks for all the input!

I tried a plunger type and the hinge isn't strong enough to pull it closed.
