Kisses Candy Cane Blossoms Recipe
I am already 4 batches of cookies deep since discovering my favorite Hershey's Kisses are back in the stores. The Kisses Candy Cane Blossoms recipe should be on the back of the Candy Cane Kisses bag and it is also available on the Hershey's web-site. I am posting it here for easy reference for myself. I like to use white sugar sprinkles vs. red or green as I feel like the cookies have a classier look to them. Less color but more sparkle. Time to purchase more kisses as I have run out already.
