  • 12 oz semi-sweet morsels (1 package)
  • 24 round flat cookies or buttery crackers (I used Ritz crackers)
  • 1.5 cup Dixie Crystals powdered sugar (divided)
  • 1.5 tbsp water (divided)
  • Orange, green, and purple food coloring (or use classic colors and mix to get the desired color)
  • 24 chocolate kisses (unwrapped)


  • Place the semi-sweet morsels in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power for 40 seconds, then stir, then microwave on 50% for 20 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until the morsels are completely melted.
  • Place a sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet or other flat tray. Dip each round cookie or cracker in the chocolate, scrape off the excess, and place on the wax paper. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens.
  • Add ½ cup Dixie Crystals powdered sugar and ½ tablespoon water in each of 3 small bowls. Add a few drops of food coloring in each to create the orange, green, and purple colors. Mix well until the icing is stiff. Add more food coloring, a drop or two at a time, until the colors are vibrant enough for you. If the icing is too stiff, add a little water. If it is too runny, add a little more sugar.
  • Remove the chocolate covered rounds from the refrigerator. Drop a dollop of icing (about ¼ teaspoon) to the center of each, then press down with a chocolate kiss so that the excess icing forms a ring around the bottom.
  • Allow the icing to set for 15-20 minutes before serving.
