Can we just talk about these kisses for a minute? They are Hershey’s holiday Candy Cane kisses and they are marvelous. I was skeptical at first, thinking they might be overly sweet. They are sweet, don’t get me wrong, but I was totally won over by the little crispy bits in these. Have you ever had those melt away mints that come in all the pastel colors with the little white “candies” on the bottoms of them? I’m sure they have a name, they are served at parties and weddings frequently. They’re totally addicting and these kisses taste just like them. I’m hooked. Pair them with a rich chocolate cookie and I’m a happy camper.
I used the same cookie base as I did in the Chocolate Cherry Thumbprints, because really…it is just that good. Paired with the creamy deliciousness of these kisses–you’ll want to send these away on cookie platters to friends and family, just to get them out of the house. If you look really closely at my pictures, you’ll see that the tips of the kisses got slightly brown. It will remind you of a toasted marshmallow, there is a tiny bit of crunch and it still tastes great! Just keep an eye on them or you’ll be in trouble.
Verdict: Loved these! Sent them off to work with Ben to get them out of the house.
Husband’s take: He didn’t try these! He set them out at work and didn’t get a chance to eat one. His loss!
Changes I would make: Nada
