Very easy cookie dough to work with. I made these with 3 five year olds and a 2 year old. The 2 year old was able to cover the kiss rather well. I also like the fact that it's an eggless dough. The kids could eat it and I didn't have to worry. I used peppermint, mint and cherry hershey kisses. I wouldn't recommend the cherry ones. They have too much liquid inside and no matter how much I padded them, they oozed. The peppermint and mint worked great. I'm still out on the powdered sugar though. I thought they tasted wonderful with out the powdered sugar. My kids liked it with the powdered sugar. I'll definitely be added these to my regular list of holiday cookies. Thanks!
