Caramel Apple Sugar Cookies

I just love fall.  Everything about fall makes me happy.  The cooler weather is a great start to bliss, but I am always excited to see what Target's Halloween candy section has in store each year.  I love the different flavors of Hershey's candies.  It's always fun to try and create something fun to compliment the candy.  The other day I found Caramel Apple Kisses.  Let me tell you that they do in fact taste just like one.  Oh so sweet!  Since they're so sweet I thought they'd need a cookie that wasn't overly sweet.  I decided to make sugar cookies but not cut-out cookies and top them with the kisses.  Y.U.M.

Since the kisses are caramel apple I thought the cookies should be an apple. :)  I used WIlton coloring gel.

Once the dough is ready you separate it in half, wrap in wax paper and refrigerate for two hours.

Even though I wasn't going to cut the cookies I rolled the dough out to flatten it some.

I rolled it into small balls and then rolled the balls in sugar.

Ready to bake!

As soon as the cookies have baked put the unwrapped kisses on top immediately.  Let set for a minute then put the baking sheet in the fridge for about 30 minutes or else you'll have a melted chocolate mess.

Then you indulge!

My sweet taste tester approved!

Have you made anything fun with Hershey Kisses lately?
