Peanut Butter Blossoms

These easy Peanut Butter Blossoms are the ultimate soft cookie treat that combines one of the best food combos ever- pb and chocolate!

There are so many food combos that are a match made in heaven but peanut butter and chocolate has to be the absolute best one! It is my hubby’s favourite as well and I have whipped up several treats that satisfy his love for it over the years!

These Peanut Butter Blossoms are one of our favourites! They make the perfect cookie for holiday cookie trays but, to be honest, we whip these up all year round!

As with most of my go-to recipes, this one is easy and straight forward too. It’s super simple and fun enough that even the kiddos can get involved!

How to make Peanut Butter Blossoms

My recipe for these cookies makes about 25 of them and all of the hard work is done by my stand mixer. All that’s left to do is roll them up into balls and roll them in sugar before baking! Super easy!

To make these cookies, you will need:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar, for rolling
  • 25 Hershey’s kisses

Preheat oven to 350F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy (a couple of minutes). Add the peanut butter, egg, milk, vanilla extract and mix to combine.

Add the salt and baking soda and mix to combine. Slowly add the flour until incorporated.

Scoop out dough (I like to use a small sized cookie scoop- about 1 tablespoon) and roll the dough into balls.

Place 3/4 cup sugar in a small bowl. Roll the dough balls in the sugar and place the balls on the baking sheets, 2 inches apart.

Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes. Remove them from the oven and gently press a Hershey kiss into the center of each cookie. Allow the cookies to cool on a baking sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

That’s it! The hardest part is not devouring them all within minutes!

I hope you enjoy these sweet little treats as much as we do!
