Chewy Peanut Butter Hershey’s Kiss Blossoms


If you plan on making these, here is your warning: These Chewy Peanut Butter Hershey’s Kiss Blossoms are Extremely Addictive. Eat with Caution!

I must be on a peanut butter high  or a cookie addiction after making so many types of Peanut Butter Cookies and just plain cookies. I know you must be tired of all these easy cookie recipes. But nothing beats the best peanut cookie except a peanut cookie with a Chocolate Kiss on it! It is the perfect blend of chocolate and peanut butter. I love how the Hershey’s Kiss doesn’t melt but softens and warms. Mmmhhhh…delicious! Plus they are so cute and miniature that you have to eat at least 10!

Delicious Rating: Simple to bake and delicious to eat. I make these for parties or as a finger dessert. They always go so fast! You have the option to roll the dough balls in sugar or not. I do half and half. Both are equally good and you really don’t need the extra sugar! Be prepared to eat a lot of extra Hershey’s Kisses when unwrapping each one!

Chewy Peanut Butter Hershey's Kiss Blossoms
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Yields: 36 Cookies
Serve with a tall glass of milk!
  • 36 Hershey's Kisses
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • About ¼ cup sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl combine eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, and peanut butter.
  3. Mix in baking powder, salt, flour, and melted butter.
  4. Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll into sugar.
  5. Place on an non-greased cookie sheet and bake 8 minutes.
  6. Once removed from oven, immediately press a Hershey's Kiss in center of each cookie ball.
  7. Remove cookies from baking sheet and allow to cool on wire rack.

If you are a ‘joneser’ for peanut butter, add in a little extra, it won’t hurt!

I rolled some cookies in sugar and left some out. It is really up to your preference. My DH doesn’t like any extra sugar if it doesn’t he to be there. So I left off the sugar in half the batch.

Immediately press the kiss in the cookie once out the oven. MMmmmhhh…you can literally smell the chocolate softening inside. Yum!

    Just made these tonight, a little salty for my taste, but I love how chewy they are! I’ll set this recipe aside for the future! Can’t wait to see what texture they have in the morning! Yum!

  • Laura says:

    I just made these and the dough was crumbly and very greasy. I did get the into balls and onto the cookie sheet. But then when I put the kisses on, after baking, the dough crumbled into a gazillion pieces.

    I also agree that the dough is a bit salty, even for unsalted pb.

  • Vanessa says:

    Can we use something to replace peanut butter?

  • Kenosha says:

    I did a batch but the kisses become so soft and melted slightly when they are inserted into “very hot – out of the oven” cookie. To retain the chocolate kisses shape as shown in your photos, do you just leave the chocolate to air dry after inserting onto cookie or bake for 2-3 mins more or put them in the refrigerator to cool a bit before keeping them in air tight containers?

    • Kenosha, I just press them in the cookie once out of the oven and they have always remained their shape even though they soften. Try waiting a couple of minutes before putting the kiss in the cookie if they keep melting on you. Also, once inserted, I allow them to cool on a wire rack before storing them in an airtight container.

  • ll says:

    Most cookie recipes call for 1/2 or 1 cup butter. I was surprised to see this one only needs 2 TBSP. I’m looking forward to trying it.

  • Cheryl Heming says:

    The dough seemed very dry and crumbled when I put the kiss on. I threw all my precious cookies away. I didn’t have shortening so I used this recipe.

    • I am sorry to hear that Cheryl, could it have been the type of peanut butter you used? Sometimes using a natural or homemade peanut butter can cause less moisture in the dough.
