From I love Hershey's special edition kisses. This year's white chocolate kiss with a red striped peppermint shell makes some of the most festive cookies on my cookie trays. I used green decorator's sugar which contrast nicely with the red and white kiss. Next time I might try peppermint extract instead of vanilla and use crushed candy canes in place of the green sugar crystals. Be very careful moving the cookies after the kiss is in; the kisses will collapse.

We love making these cookies. I don't like mint in my cookies though so I replaced the Candy Cane Kisses with Milk Chocolate Kisses and they're great. I've also done these with the Cherry Cordial Kisses and those are AWESOME!

I made these last year for my cookie exchange and absolutely loved them- as did everyone else. I rolled half the batch in green sugar and the other half in red sugar for a festive display.

I made this recipe tonight and it is definitely a keeper! Quick, easy, and beautiful presentation. I hope Hershey's makes these kisses again next year.
