    My mom and I made these for my baby shower that is on Sunday. The hardest part was finding the mini nutter butters! Aldi randomly had them :) they came out really cute! I would have given 5 stars but putting the chocolate on the top was a struggle. It didn't come out perfectly. It was either too cooled that the chocolate was hard to pipe or too hot that it was runny. Overall, really quick and easy fall treat.

    I made these to take to a ladies lunch, and they were such a hit, both in appearance and flavor. They were popular, too, in the size. That makes them dangerous, if you ask me, but I know I'll be making these often for fall functions. I used dark chocolate kisses and dark chocolate chips for the stems because dark is better for you, and I didn't want to mess with piping.

    Haven't made them, but they look adorable and I'll probably make them for Thanksgiving. One question, how many Kisses are in a bag. It calls for 48, is that approximately 1 bag? Thanks!

    Super simple and so cute. My granddaughter enjoyed making these with me. The second time I made them I used mini vanilla wafers in lieu of the peanut butter cookies. I also made a batch using pumpkin spice kisses.

    These are cute and easy. I made them several years ago. I use a miniature chocolate chip for the stem. I am going to put them on a peanut butter cake for Thanksgiving this year.
