Hershey's Candy Corn Kisses are a Halloween fave!

I bought some Hershey Candy Corn Kisses at Target and love them! They smell heavenly like vanilla and are so cute.
Here is a recipe from the Hershey website to make for Halloween:

KISSES Candy Corn Pixies

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Yellow and red food colors
48 HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Candy Corn Flavored Candies
Powdered sugar

1. Beat butter, granulated sugar, eggs and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended.

2. Place about 3/4 cup dough in each of three separate bowls. Add yellow food coloring to one bowl, mixing until color of dough is uniform and close to color of candy piece. Tint another bowl orange using yellow and red food coloring. Cover; refrigerate doughs about 1 hour or until firm enough to handle.

3. Heat oven to 300° F. Remove wrappers from candies. Taking a small pinch of dough from each bowl, shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in powdered sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.4. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until edges are set. Cool about 2 minutes; press candy piece into center of cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 dozen cookies.
