Carrot Cake Kiss Cookies

It is hard to believe Easter is around the corner! It really snuck up on me this year. If you follow along, you know I love an easy holiday cookie recipe I can make with the kids. When I came across Hershey’s seasonal Carrot Cake Kisses, I knew I had to create something using them. These aren’t just any White Chocolate Kisses, but rather, ones filled with a cream filling. Meet my original Carrot Cake Kiss Cookie. This one is kid and Easter Bunny tested and approved!

    Jessica I made the Easter kiss cookies and they were delicious. I put the leftover ones in the freezer but that doesn’t stop me from eating them. They are just as good frozen!!!
