I am a pretty awesome husband if you didn’t know that already. Every holiday season I make these cookies for my wife. They’re her favorite. She’s been asking for these peanut butter kiss cookies for a couple weeks now so I decided to make these and share them with you too. You can just make them for yourself-no wife required. 🙂

Peanut Butter


First you’ll want to gather your ingredients.

Ingredients for peanut butter kiss cookies

The next step is pretty simple. You just mix it all together. I always take a little nibble of the dough. It’s sort of a requirement when baking. Why the heck does dough taste so freaking good?

Finally, you’ll place them on your favorite cookie sheet and shape them like I show in this delicious picture. It’s really easy and a fun step for the kids.
I know when I’m making cookies there’s just no way to keep them out of the kitchen so they might as well help.

Lastly, you place the Hershey kisses and then eat. I probably didn’t need to tell you that though. HA! Enjoy!
