      These sugar cookie bars take sugar cookies to new levels. Levels of ease and all kinds of deliciousness, that is. 🙂 They are super soft and so yummy. The chopped Hershey’s Candy Cane KISSES are what make these festive and fun for Christmas!

   The Candy Cane KISSES (which are my favorite this time of year!) give these sugar cookie bars just a slight peppermint flavor without being to overwhelming. They are seriously divine!

   I had Kale take these to work after I made them, because if he didn’t, I knew I would eat them all. 😉

  1. Hi, just found your site on yummly and am loving this recipe. I have a question, instead of candy cane kisses can i use reg. candy canes? Kisses have soy in them so I am unable to eat them. Will it change the recipe too much?
