Chewy Peanut Butter Hershey’s Kiss Blossoms

If you plan on making these, here is your warning: These Chewy Peanut Butter Hershey’s Kiss Blossoms are Extremely Addictive. Eat with Caution!
I must be on a peanut butter high  or a cookie addiction after making so many types of Peanut Butter Cookies and just plain cookies. I know you must be tired of all these easy cookie recipes. But nothing beats the best peanut cookie except a peanut cookie with a Chocolate Kiss on it! It is the perfect blend of chocolate and peanut butter. I love how the Hershey’s Kiss doesn’t melt but softens and warms. Mmmhhhh…delicious! Plus they are so cute and miniature that you have to eat at least 10!
Rating: Simple to bake and delicious to eat. I make these for parties or as a finger dessert. They always go so fast! You have the option to roll the dough balls in sugar or not. I do half and half. Both are equally good and you really don’t need the extra sugar! Be prepared to eat a lot of extra Hershey’s Kisses when unwrapping each one!

If you are a ‘joneser’ for peanut butter, add in a little extra, it won’t hurt!

I rolled some cookies in sugar and left some out. It is really up to your preference. My DH doesn’t like any extra sugar if it doesn’t he to be there. So I left off the sugar in half the batch.

Immediately press the kiss in the cookie once out the oven. MMmmmhhh…you can literally smell the chocolate softening inside. Yum!
