WRONG:

THESE KIND


RIGHT:

THIS KIND


In a sentence like “I love this kind of chocolates,” “this” modifies “kind” (singular) and not “chocolates” (plural), so it would be incorrect to change it to “I love these kind of chocolates.” Only if “kind” itself is pluralized into “kinds” should “this” shift to “these“: “You keep making these kinds of mistakes!”
