Chocolate kisses are wrapped in sweet red and green almond paste and rolled in sugar for a quick, yet elegant, holiday treat.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 14 HERSHEY®'S KISSES® Milk Chocolates

- 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Remove wrappers from chocolate pieces. Stir together ground almonds and powdered sugar in medium bowl until well combined. Stir together corn syrup and almond extract; pour over almond mixture, stirring until completely blended. Divide mixture in half, placing each half in separate bowls.
Add green food color to one part; with clean hands, mix until color is well blended and mixture clings together. Add red food color to other half; mix as directed.
