Peanut Butter Blossoms

Peanut Butter Blossoms by Cheng and 3 Kids

These festive Peanut Butter Blossoms are super easy to make! If you're looking for something simple and quick to bake for a cookie exchange, a Christmas party, or even as something to give to the neighbors, then you might want to try this.

And who could resist the combination of chocolate and peanut butter?
Not me, that's for sure!

Peanut Butter Blossoms by Cheng and 3 Kids

I used Hershey's Kisses Milk Chocolate with Almonds and Dove Dark Chocolate Snowflake Promises. Both were very good, but the little boy and I prefer the ones with the Hershey's Kisses. While the two girls liked the ones with the Dove chocolates better. It's a tie!

What about you? Hershey's Kisses or Dove Dark Chocolate?


PEANUT BUTTER BLOSSOMS

1 pouch (1 lb. 1.5 oz.) Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie Mix
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon water
1 egg
colored sugar (I used red and green)
unwrapped chocolates (I used Hershey's Kisses with Almonds and Dove Dark Chocolate Promises)

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, oil, water and egg until dough forms.Shape dough into 36 (1 inch) balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.Bake 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately press 1 chocolate candy in center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely about 20 minutes.
Enjoy with a tall glass of milk. :)

  1. My sister-in-law makes them every year and my mom and I eagerly await them. I've never made them myself, but I would do it with red and green sprinkles like you have! I've never had the very festive ones before.

    1. These cookies are a classic, they would taste the same as the ones your sister-in-law makes but the red and green sugar just makes them more Christmas-y! Hope you try making them Tamara!
