    This recipe is easy to make. The most time consuming part is unwrapping the Kisses. These cookies are always a hit.

    This is a great classic recipe, of course, and very easy. I just made a variation with almond butter and Special Dark Hershey's kisses that was to die for. Give it a try. I think the caramel filled kisses would be very good also.

    These cookies are so cute and easy to make. My whole family loves to eat these around the holidays. I personally like Hugs on top instead of Kisses but I usually make both kinds for my family. Honestly though, these cookies are great for any occasion!

    These are a definite holiday favorite! I had never made these before, but they were pretty simple. However, a little time consuming. I feel that the cookie part wasn't as sweet as I remember, but I may use 1/2 cup of sugar instead of the 1/3 cup next time or add a half tsp more of vanilla.

    My mom used to make these all the time when I was younger, I forgot about them until a few days ago when my brother mentioned them. They are definitely a childhood favorite.

    I love these cookies and I get rave reviews everytime I bake them. I always have to do a double batch and I still have to put 4-5 of them back if I am going to have any to enjoy with my hot tea.

    EASY, QUICK, FUN! This is a good recipe if you want to include a child. They can easily roll the dough into balls, coat them with sugar, or really do any of the steps. My younger sister loves rolling the dough into balls. It's a fun bonding time! I also agree that this recipe is good for ANY occasion!

    I love to bake these WONDERFUL cookies!. They are fun and easy to make. I think they also make a nice decoration. I usually make them for Halloween and Christmas and even New Years as decorations and I find myself eating them. I think they make a wonderful party cookie no matter what holiday rolls around!.

    It wouldn't be Christmas at my house unless we left some of these for Santa! One of the best.
