Hershey's Kisses has got to be one of the greatest culinary inventions of all times. These bite-sized pieces of chocolate, shaped like flat-bottomed teardrops and wrapped in shiny foils, have brought so much pleasure to kids of all ages. You can pop several of these into mouth without going overboard with your dietary budget. My favorite is, of course, Dark Chocolate Kisses, wrapped in royal violet. How about you?
Another great virtue of Kisses is that they are fabulously paintable. Put them on a colorful fabric, like passionate scarlet in my painting. Crinkled foils start reflecting confetti bits of colors all over. If you position the chocolates with flags strategically, they look like a couple of lovers!
