I make these at Christmas with a candied cherry inside (Sugarplum Surprises) & make them round. For Valentine's Day I shape them like a "kiss' & cover them w/foil along with "the tag" saying Happy Valentines Day or THINK SPRING!!! (If you can't tolerate nuts use oatmeal) Very easy to make & fun too!!

I am glad I tried this recipe. My grandchildren loved the chocolate kisses inside. Because of the children, I didn't add the walnuts, but I am sure that would have added a lot. Nice change from peanut butter blossoms with Hershey Kisses on top.

Easy and yummy. My kids loved helping make these - I rolled out the balls and flattened them, and the kids put the kisses in the middle and sealed them up. A fun cookie to make together.
