    The classic peanut butter blossoms cookie recipe with a Christmas spin!


    Hershey’s kisses look so similar to Santa’s hat that I absolutely had to put a Christmas spin on the classic peanut butter blossoms cookie recipe. If you’re not familiar with the classic recipe, it's a peanut butter cookie with a milk chocolate Hershey kiss pushed into the top. For my Santa hat spin, we’re using white chocolate Hershey kisses and some red icing to really get us into the Christmas spirit!
