This is a great recipe for kids, we had such fun making them. My two year old peeled all the wrappers off the kisses and the four year old helped roll them into balls. They taste delicious the only changes I made was to add a little less flour(did 2 1/4 cups) and omit the pecans because the kids don't care for nuts. I've always loved the cookies with the kiss on top but these are better because the kiss stays very soft and does not burn. Thanks for posting, it's a keeper!

These are yummy, but I'm not going to rate this recipe because I had too much trouble making it. Part of the problem was that I used the caramel filled kisses and they melted too much in the oven. Aside from that I found these extremely frustrating to make because the dough was too dry and crumbly even after reducing the flour to 2 cups. My 4-year-old daughter gave up in tears because the ball of dough kept falling apart. Out of curiosity I looked for a similar recipe on the Hershey's website. Their recipe for Secret Almond Kisses Cookies only calls for 1 3/4 cups of flour, but otherwise the ingredients are comparable. If I ever make these again, I'll try their recipe.

I made these cookies today and they were excellent, however, when I was at the grocery store they didn't have chocolate kisses so I got chocolate bells. These bells were filled with fudge some with peanut butter and some with caramel. yummy.

These are great! I only used 2 cups of flour and added chopped almonds since that's what I had at home. It went really well with dark chocolate kisses. I did only get about 3 dozen cookies out of this, though, and I used measured tbsp of dough, probably because I didn't use as much flour though. Thanks for sharing!

These were awesome cookies as they combine the great aspects of russian teacakes (or whatever you may call them) and chocolate. I found that 2 cups of flour worked for me and that one could easily round the dough around the kiss without having to try and round, flatten, bring up the sides, etc. The only strange thing was that my cookies did not come out round but instead flattened on the bottom. I am not sure if it was because I did not round them enough so that they did not shift or what. Another note is that I did not get anywhere close to 5 dozen cookies with this recipe which was fine with me though. These tasted great warm as the chocolate melted in your mouth, thanks for the treat!

These were good -- my 8 year old loved them. I only got about 45 cookies out of the batch, not 60. I used light butter, only 2 cups of flour and left out the nuts. Don't overbake them even if they don't look done after 10-11 minutes (I overbaked my first batch and they turned into rocks!)
