    These are excellent! I was surprised that the kisses on the inside were still soft, even after the cookies had cooled; I'll be interested to see if they are still soft tomorrow! I unwrapped the kisses while watching TV, before starting on the dough, but checked to see how long it took me (about 20-25 min) so I would know about how long to chill the dough later. I used the dark chocolate kisses but I know someone who has made similar cookies and used some of the other various flavored kisses. After the dough had chilled, I started portioning out the dough into balls, which was good because I only got about 35 first go-round! I went back and made them smaller until I had 60 small balls. Because I had handled the dough so much, I put the balls back into the bowl (gingerly, so they wouldn't stick together) and into the fridge to chill a little. These are a bit piddly, having to wrap each kiss, but definitely worth the work :) Thanks so much for sharing!
