Classic Peanut Butter Blossoms (Hershey Kiss Cookies)

These Classic Peanut Butter Blossoms might not make it to your party because they taste SO good! The Hershey Kiss in the middle is a MUST!

My mom used to make these Classic Peanut Butter Blossoms for our after school snack. As soon as we opened the door to the house, you could just smell the mix of peanut butter and chocolate and it was heavenly!

Making these cookies are a breeze! They only take a few ingredients to throw together! They are usually my go to cookie if I have a bag of Hershey kisses sitting around!


Holidays get a little crazy, so the more you can use your time wisely and make things ahead of time, the better.

These Andes Mint Cookies are the best cookies to make ahead of time, because they are delicious cold. If you plan to make them more than a week ahead of serving them we recommend storing them.

The best way to store and preserve them, is to put them in an airtight container, and put them in the freezer.

The day before serving them, we recommend removing them from the freezer and putting them on the counter, or in the fridge for 24 hours.

You could also reheat them in the oven a little bit, just to make them warm, but it will melt the chocolate a little bit.


Don’t get me wrong, I love cookies and milk, but there are a few holiday drinks, that only come around this time of year, so you have to take advantage of them.

Here are a few of our favorite holiday beverages to drink with our favorite cookies. They are all alcohol free, and kid friendly, so everyone can enjoy the holidays.

Red Velvet Hot Chocolate: Just when red velvet couldn’t get any tastier, we turned it into hot chocolate, and you are going to love it. It is so creamy, and I love dipping cookies or brownies in it.

Instant Pot Apple Cider: You haven’t had apple cider until you try instant pot apple cider. This will blow you away. It tastes like Christmas in a cup.

Cranberry Citrus Party Punch: This is the BEST holiday punch recipe. It is so light and refreshing, and full of delicious cranberry flavor. You need to try this recipe.

Nutella Hot Chocolate: If you are anything like me, you like the rich with the rich. I don’t care what anyone says, there is no such thing as too much chocolate, and this hot cocoa, and the cookies, complement each other, perfectly.

Run out of Hershey Kisses? Don’t worry, these cookies taste delicious with or without the kiss. So if you run out, just roll up the rest and serve them plain, or throw in a few chocolate chips!
