Peanut Butter Blossoms
Hi Everyone, these Peanut Butter Blossoms are so much fun to make with kids. They are great for the Christmas/Holiday season and they are half chocolate having those iconic Hershey’s Kisses in the center which are added right after they come out of the oven.
You can customize the type of Hershey’s kiss, since there are a variety out there. I chose dark chocolate kisses for the Peanut Butter Blossoms in these photos.
