    Hershey's sadly doesn't make the Kissables anymore. We loved them because my son couldn't eat M&M's due to allergies. But Hershey makes something call Hershey-Etes. They are usually sold at Christmas, red and green, and Easter, white and maybe orange. I don't remember if they have them at Halloween. They sell them on the Hershey web site but they are expensive. I hit the stores after the holidays and buy as many as I can.

    How can you go wrong with Hershey kissables inside a cookie? Made these as part of my Christmas cookie tray, and they were a huge hit, especially with my husband's family. Thank you!

    I had some leftover fall-colored orange and yellow kissables and this recipe was great for using them all up! I had a little under 1 1/3 cups of the chips left and thought it was a perfect chocolate- to-dough ratio. If I would've had 1 1/3 cups, I would have used them all. I cooked each batch for 9-10 minutes and they were just right. My kids and I both loved them! They had a wonderful taste and I will be making this recipe again. Thanks, Nikki Kate!

    This was perfect for my son's class party! The kids loved them. They came out colorful and that ate them up. I asked my son to save me one, but all I got was my plate back with crumbs and a note from the teacher asking for the recipe ;) I will definitely make these again. Thanks for sharing. I liked these better than the M&M's too. ~V

    These are sure to brighten anyone's day. They are so colorful, cheery-looking, and yummy. My kids said they liked these better than M&M cookies (those are sooooo yesterday ;) )I only used 1 cup of Kissables and I think you could even cut back to 3/4 cup. I think there was just a bit too many Kissables in relation to the dough. It was hard to form balls unless I used my hands to form them. I'll make these again; thanx!
