    When you make these in July, friends think you are "original".
    Really good, and easy to make with kids!
    I am the director of nutrion at a skilled nursing home. Made these very easy cookies for our residents Christmas dinner and they are still talking about them the next day! Great and easy recipe!
    These are the best cookies I generally don't eat too many cookies after making them but these are ADDICTIVE! followed receipe just as show
    Recipe is sooo easy and yummy! I love the hint of mint but my husband does not. I leave some plain and we are both happy. Also, I LOVE how festive they are. I made them for a Christmas cookie swap. Can't wait to see what everyone thinks!
    These are soooo good!!!! Their easy to make and makes a ton of cookies good for a cookie exchange or bake sale!!! I used them for a cookie exchange last year and they were a huge hit!!!!!
    My cookies flatten out more than the picture. These are a good Christmas cookie. Everyone loves them.
    These cookies have become a tradition in our house at Christmas time. They add variety since so many recipes use semi-sweet or milk chocolate, the mint is a nice change. DO NOT store these with other cookies to avoid the mint permeating them. Great cookie!
    these were delicious! makes about a dozen cookies. i used dark chocolate kisses instead of mint and they were soooo good!!
    The Candy Cane Kisses are may favorites Kisses this time of year. These cookies are easy to make and are really pretty and festive. I will make again.
    Really easy recipe... and cute cookies! My family loved unwrapping the Kisses and rolling the dough in sugar. Will make again!
    Not a big mint fan so I replaced the Mint Kisses with Milk Chocolate and they were great and even better when I tried a few with the Cherry Cordial Kisses. This is our third Christmas making them.
    Loved these cookies, making them for school bake sale later this week too. Kids loved, even husband that doesn't like mint thought they were pretty good. Definitely one for the cookie list!
    Dough was perfect to work with. They look so very festive. Everyone gobbled them up. A definite Christmas favorite to be made again.
    These cookies were really good! My kids gobbled them up. I will definatly be making these again this Christmas!
