I LOVE the traditional peanut butter blossoms.
Every Christmas at our Cookie buffet there would always be a plate of peanut butter blossoms.
And every Christmas, I would pick out the Hershey's Kiss and leave
the cookie back on the plate and my mom would get so mad at me :)
I didn't do that with these little beauties.
I enjoy eating the WHOLE cookie, because the key is getting the right amount of cookie to even out the Hershey's HUG, I can't stand it when there's too much cookie and one little KISS/HUG.
It's all about balance with this cookie!
This really makes a beautiful holiday cookie.
I just love the contrast of the stripes and the chocolate cookie.
Plus what's a better combo than chocolate, peanut butter
and a HERSHEY'S HUG to go on top?!?
These are quite delicious!
