I am going to eat him/her with kisses... with is the key word here! It means, not only in Spain (and Heidi, correct me if I'm wrong about the Spanish connotation here) that someone:

  • is either too cute, like a baby or toddler,
  • did something amazing for you and therefore you will eat them with kisses because you are THAT thankful (oh, i'v heard this one in southamerica one too many times),
  • if it's your significant other then... well... they're going to kiss you till exhaustion!

At least these are the meanings I know for this expression.

Hope this helps!!!

Jankow, not only is this expression popular in Spain, but in most Latin American countries and it means: to give a lot of kisses. When a person gives a great amount o kisses continuously it makes the onomatopoeic sound similar to the one of a person who is eating. That is the reason why they say:" Te voy a comer a besos," or " lo voy a comer a besos"
