What would you do with a hundred kisses?

My SO's very sweet nephew (he's 8!) gave us a huge tin of Hershey's kisses. I'm not particularly into eating them straight -- I remember liking them as a kid, but they don't really appeal to me anymore. A friend suggested I make those peanut butter cookie things with the kiss on top, but I don't like peanut butter . . . so, any other good ideas for using them?

Thanks for your thoughts!

  1. big ass chocolate chip cookies?

    1. Discretely give them away.

      1. I'd eat or make those peanut butter cookies for a bake sale or kids school. But you can melt or chop and use in any recipe calling for milk chocolate. Other than that, trade em to someone.

        1. Probably not what you were looking for, but I threw about 20 of those into my chili recently...

              Oh hush ;-) Like you've never heard of chocolate in a mole before...

                But not sweet milk chocolate in mole. It uses unsweetened. I agree EWWWWWWW!

                1. re: Candy

                  LOTS of chili recipes call for some kind of chocolate, even milk chocolate. Assuming you don't add too much, it adds a richness to the flavor that you don't detect as sweetness at all. It's really not that strange.

          2. If you have a reasonably cool and reasonably dry place to put them, they'll keep just fine practically forever. It's nice to have chocolate around the house, even cheap candy-grade, both for cooking and for putting out for guests...and if you still have most of them at the end of October, there's Halloween!
