Peanut Blossoms…with a kiss for your Sweetheart

Peanut butter and chocolate are a combination made in heaven.  What a perfect way to treat your Valentines with a sweet treat for Valentine’s Day. While Peanut Blossoms are also a Christmas favorite at my house, they are good all year long.

My 11.5 year old Golden Retriever likes them, too…helping himself to a few dozen stored in a canister on my counter.  I’m lucky he has an iron stomach! No more Peanut Blossoms for Big Bad Joe this year!


1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons milk
1 egg
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 bag chocolate kisses

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl (except chocolate) and mix on low speed until well blended. Shape in round balls and roll in sugar.
  • Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees.
  • Remove cookies and press in chocolate star or kiss in each cookie while cookies are still hot.

Yield: 4 dozen
