Delicious i made this recipe without the Hershey's Kisses as some are allergic to the chocolate.Turned out wonderful tasty.Rolled to perfection.Contained ingredients that most people do have in their home.Very easy recipe.I would certainly give it the five stars it deserves.Cooked it a bit longer than the recipe states until they were golden brown.When removed from the oven the sugar sparkles on the top.Nice for the holidays
