Pretty please enlighten me. I keep reading about all of these new flavors of kisses but still did not come across of what you actually do with them? Put them in the middle of the cupcakes? Don't they harden up after cooling? Or is it not cupcake related and you just enjoy eating them sraight out of the bag?, LOL
Thanks, P

They are GREAT right out of the bag! But I used them in cupcakes and they harden up a little, but they were still kind of soft. Someone suggested to use them as a bottom layer to a cheesecake. I made drop cookies and put the yogurt kisses on it and they were really good. But again, right out of the bag, they're really really good!

I found the best Hershey kisses the other day. They're pumpkin spice. OMG so good! I think they would be awesome on top of a snickerdoodle. I might just have to try it.

I got the pumpkin spice ones and made cookies, put one of the kisses in the center right after the oven and melted them down. They are so good!!!!

Here is the cookie recipe, just replace the chips with the kisses.[url=http://www.verybestbaking.com/recipes/detail.aspx?ID=133595/url]

I've put the hugs kisses in the middle of cupcakes, other wise, as a topper on top of the frosting, or cookies, and straight out of the bag!

How does the kiss turn out in a cupcake? Is it melty, gooey, yummy? I have done this with homemade truffles in a cupcake. Also do you bake the cupcake in two stages to assure it stays in the middle? I had to do that with the truffle. Bake a little little bit... and then the rest ...

If you reserve a small amount of cake mix or flour to lightly coat the kiss, it will stay in place. Mine were very soft, it was gooey out of the oven, but once they cooled, it was like a soft kiss that had been in the sun a little bit, just not super gooey. The kids loved them!

Has anyone tried the candy corn ones? I like candy corn, but I'm not sure if I'd like the Hershey kiss ones. I just can't seem to get myself to spend the money on candy I won't eat. I also saw they had carmel apple ones. I might actually get those. Those sound yummy.

I tried both the candy corn and the caramel apple kisses. Didn't really care for either one, but it didn't stop me from eating them. The caramel apple ones taste like their regular caramel ones, but with a green apple flavoring added to them. The candy corn ones are cute, they are white chocolate with the colors of candy corn and some flavoring added to them. The boys didn't like those, cause they love candy corn and it was just not the same. I did use them as decorations in my cookie bouquets.

hmmm....maybe I'll just stick with the Pumpkin Spice ones. I might even have to get me a few of those to put in the freezer.

I chopped up the Pumpkin Spice kisses and add about 32 of them to a bundt cake recipe. That was terrific and you could do it with any cake. I used the raspberry ones along with nuts in a chocolate bundt cake and it was really good also.
Has anyone been able to find the coffee ones that are suppose to be out? I have searched everywhere with no luck.

I've tried the candy corn kisses. They are adorable and the smell really good. They don't necessarily taste like candy corns, but they're okay. They smell better than they taste unfortunately.

Yesterday I got lucky and found the marshmallow and the dark truffle kisses. The mrshmallow one will go in my s'mores cookies for christmas and the truffle ones will be good dropped in chocolate cupcake batter. They won't be bad just eating them out of the bag either!! icon_biggrin.gif

I did buy the pumpkin spice and their so good the candy corn flavor to there not to bad but won't buy them again. The New York cheese cake kisses are to die for. Going to try the hot chocolate one's next. Haven't seen the marshmallow flavor yet. One of my favorites were the mint kisses until the put a mint filling in them now. Why is it when they've got something good going they always have to change it.
My all time favorite are the coconut filled stinks there only around at Easter. icon_cry.gif

Thanks for that recipe. I am going to give it a try. Today I found the Mint Truffle kisses and the candy cane kisses. I think they are my favorites so far. I made chocolate mint cupcakes and forgot to drop the mint kiss on the batter, so when the cupcakes were done I set a kiss on the top of each hot cupcake. I pushed them down a bit while melty and then swirled the frostin around the kiss. Sprinkled them with crushed candy cane and they looked pretty good.
I think my favorite way to use these kisses is chopping them and adding to the batter.
