Cherry Kisses

Here is a yummy and easy recipe that I usually only make around Valentine's Day (it would be dangerous for me if I made them more often).

easy recipe for cherry kiss cookiesRoll into 1" balls
Bake 8-10 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
Press a kiss into each cookie after removing from the oven. I buy the kisses on clearance after Christmas and keep them in the freezer, hidden from the kids and myself.



  1. Those are so pretty and it seems pretty easy. I may make these for my daughter's valentines party at school.

  2. Mmmm those look SO good!

    Hope you are doing your under $100 linky this week- I think I will finally have it together to join :)

  3. I'm going to have to make these, I love the nice pink cookie. And you can't go wrong with chocolate kisses!

  4. I am having my hubby add the cherries to the shopping list! These sound amazing!

  5. Thanks for sharing this recipe! It's going on my list for Valentine's Day treats-- they are so pretty, and sound delicious! My girls will be delighted that they are pink :).

  6. Oh - that's a great one I can do with my kids! Thanks!

  7. Those look to pretty to eat, but then again there's chocolate. I have to try these.

  8. These look like the perfect Valentine cookie (with perhaps a drizzle of chocolate over them)! Can't wait to make them! Thanks.

    favorite candy, cherry mash!

    can't wait to try these.

    thank you!

  14. Becky - I just had to let you know I made these for a Valentine's party last weekend and they were a big hit. I just love the color of them. I served them on a wonderful old chocolate brown furnace grate which really set off the color even more. And my non-junking friends were amazed once again!
