French Kisses

I recently purchased some antique photographs in a portfolio. Inside of the portfolio were several items of ephemera from the 1890s including an Alumni Association Meeting for a high school in rural Ohio.

They outlined the guest speakers for the event and attached with a ribbon was the menu for the meeting. One of the menu items was "French Kisses." This piqued my curiosity just a tad. I want to know what food concoction in the 1890s was referred to as "French Kiss."

The only thing I have found that even comes close is a fig stuffed with pate de foie gras. This could be it but I am not really convinced that rural Ohio was eating much pate in the 1800s.

Oh, how I love a good mystery.
