Peanut Butter Kisses

Happy Thanksgiving Eve to you and your families!! I hope tomorrow is full of family, love and amazing food! If you're needing an idea for a dessert, try these out!

Don't they look amazing!? So festive and delicious! This is my own spin on the Hershey Kiss blossoms you can find here. Here's what you'll need:
First you'll want to put together the flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Set aside for later. Then mix the peanut butter and shortening in a mixer on medium until well blended. It'll look like this:
My goodness I could just dive right in! It is so darn creamy! Then you'll want to add your sugars. Next add the wet stuff: vanilla, egg and milk:
Mix in the blender until everything is well combined. Then slowly add in the flour mix. It'll look like this:
Then you'll want to get your sprinkles together. I love sprinkles!! They make an ordinary doughnut extraordinary. They turn a boring pretzel rod into a party rod (ok that was a stretch). And they make these normal peanut butter cookies FaBuLous! Take about a tablespoon of dough and roll into a bowl, then toss in the sprinkles until well coated. It helped when I pressed the dough into the bowl a little:

Let them bake. When they're done, take your favorite chocolates (I used Hershey kisses and Reeses cups for mine) and press them down in the middle.

Let them cool, then eat as many as you want cause it's the holidays and YOLO (you only live once)! Enjoy!

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 Cup shortening
3/4 Cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 Cup sugar
1/3 Cup light brown sugar, packed
1 egg
2 T milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Unwrap your chocolates if you need to and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine the shortening and peanut butter in a blender on medium speed until well combined. Add in the sugar and brown sugar until mixed well. Add the egg, milk and vanilla until smooth. Then slowly add the flour mixture a little at a time until everything is completely combined. Roll out the dough into tablespoon size balls then coat with sprinkles. Place in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove and immediately push in the chocolate. It's ok if they crack on the sides...they're supposed to :) Let cool on a wire rack and then devour! This made about 2 dozen. Hope you enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Oops I put the link on the wrong post! Tried to link up a different recipe but couldn't figure out the picture :) Relinked back up. Thanks!

  2. These are soooooooo cute!!
    Really adorable, and I have no doubt - very tasty!

  3. I love peanut butter blossoms. They're such a holiday cookie classic! The sprinkles really do dress them up, and make them a bit more festive. Although they're so delicious, I'd eat them with or without the sprinkles!
