milk chocolate candy kisses, unwrapped
I made this for a cookie exchange party, and they were GREAT! Very easy to make, and turn out not only yummy, but attractive looking as well. My Husband LOVED them. I found that doubling the recipe, and making the balls 1 inch around yielded much more than the recipe said, I got nine dozen out of it! So I had enough for my exchange, and then some!
Not what I expected. Not tasty. Bland.
This recipe is wonderful as a peanut blossom substitute. Our daughter is severly allergic to peanuts. Now she can have her kiss cookies. Nice and soft cookie. I don't roll mine in nuts and they are still delicious.
This was a wonderful addition to our Christmas baking!!Not too sweet and easy to make.I used Branches "Stars" to add something a little more festive.I had to make 5 batches becuase my friends and family couldnt get enough of them!Excellent recipe!
These cookies were really delicious. The only thing was that my dough was too thin and sticky for me to roll into balls, so we sprinkled the nuts on top. I think that I over-beat the ingredients. Next time I will not use a mixer, but will mix everything by hand and hopefully the dough will be thicker. Bye the way, we used the kisses with nuts inside. The cookie tasted so good, not too sweet, just right.
Awesome! I have had the peanut butter style ones in the past and these are way tastier! Everyone who had the cookie raved about it! Fun to make too. If doubling the recipe, buy two bags of kisses!
These cookies are delicious. BEWARE though this recipe does not make 5 dozen. I made these for a cookie swap and only ended up with 3 dozen (I may have made the cookies too big). Also, making the cookies into balls is not easy because the dough is soooo sticky. Wet your fingers before rolling - this will prevent the dough from sticking to you. All in all though - this recipe is worth making.
Love this recipe! Nothing to change, rolling these cookies in the crushed nuts makes them look real nice on the trays I hand out to 15 people during the holidays. Thank YOU!
