Can I Interest You in a Kiss?

I was super-bummed when my area for whatever reason didn't carry the Pumpkin Spice or Candy Corn kisses in autumn, because I love getting the different seasonal flavours, but it's all right because I think this is my absolute favourite, up there with peanut butter. I put these candy cane kisses on top of some chocolate cookies for a variation on the familiar peanut butter thumbprints. They were fortunately tasty and not super-dry à la Josh's taste on the West Wing, but I can't for the life of me remember where the recipe came from. I know it was a blog, and one I read frequently at that. I'll update this post when it comes to me. Anyway, I do think the cookie itself would be better with the white chocolate chips that were suggested, but when you press on a kiss and let it get all melty, it's a wonderful combination.

Any chance you could translate for foreigners* like me what a 'kiss' is in this context? I'm guessing some kind of sweet...

Sure, Rachel! It's a chocolate morsel like the red and white things you see in the picture made by Hershey's, and it's normally plain chocolate but they have a ton of flavours now. Not quite Dairy Milk, but it's nice :-)
