Fun, festive and easy! Chocolate, vanilla, pumpkin and more all mingle together in one rich little treat.
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons warm water, plus additional as needed
3/4 teaspoon pasteurized dried egg whites (meringue powder)
Food color (optional)
6 HERSHEY'S KISSES Milk Chocolates

12 REESE'S Peanut Butter Chips or HERSHEY'S Butterscotch Chips
- Prepare Royal Icing: Stir together powdered sugar, water and dried egg whites. Beat until spreadable. Add additional water, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, to get desired consistency. Tint with food color, if desired. Place in pastry bag with small tip. Makes about 1/4 cup icing. (Tip: Cover any icing not in pastry bag with a damp paper towel to keep icing from drying out.)
