One cookie that I make almost every year are peanut butter blossoms. They are a chewy peanut buttery cookie that has a Hershey’s kiss on it. Who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter together?!? They are always popular. This year, I wanted to mix it up a bit and while I was in the grocery store last week, I saw some peppermint Hershey’s kisses. I knew that these would work out great. For the cookie, I decided on a chewy, fudgy chocolate cookie.
These are so colourful and they are sure to brighten up any cookie tray. Once you have put the kiss on top of the cookie, wait for the cookie and the white chocolate in the kiss to cool and harden before moving them.
