Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"Love these cookies," says Dawn Sullivan. "I roll them in green or red sugar for Christmas."

"My whole family loves these cookies," according to lislis23 "My dad says they are just like the cookies my grandma used to make. You can even replace the Kisses with semi-sweet morsels and mix in with the dough. It's great that way too."

"These are by far the easiest cookies you will ever make, and they taste the best," raves Camille. "Make sure the cookies are completely cooled before you try to store them or there will be chocolate everywhere. Delicious, scrumptious chocolate."
