Tips

Expert Tips

If the cookies cool before you have had a chance to place the chocolate candy kiss into the center, "glue" a kiss to each cookie with a dab of chocolate or vanilla icing.

Instead of topping the cookies with chocolate kisses, pipe a stylized flower of chocolate, vanilla or orange icing onto each.
