Cherry Kisses

Here's a sweet little treat to make for Valentine's Day - combining the colors of Valentine's with the most beloved flavor (chocolate!) and even a candy the symbolizes love (kisses)! This cookie has got it all! They are also easy to whip up, and so cute on a tray or platter. Treat the ones you love to something special this weekend!
