When I think of classic sweet treat flavor combinations, I immediately think of chocolate and peanut butter. It’s a combo that we’ve all known and loved since time out of mind. I remember snacking on Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups when I was a kid, and I remember my mom and grandmother both making delicious cookies and sweets that combined peanut butter and chocolate. So, for me, chocolate and peanut butter are always a match made in Heaven.

After the kids were born, I made these cookies even more. They’re delicious, which is key, of course. They’re also super easy, which is equally important. That combination makes these the perfect cookies to whip up for special occasions in addition to simple weekday snacks or desserts. I often made these cookies for my kids’ birthday parties or for holiday get-togethers or backyard parties. I actually still do. I’m known to show up with plates of these cookies for everyone to enjoy and enjoy them, they do!

These delicious peanut butter blossom cookies are incredibly easy to make. It’s a simple peanut butter cookie recipe with an added Hershey’s Kiss at the end. It doesn’t get much easier than that when it comes to cookie recipes. However, as simple as these cookies are, there are still a couple of things to remember when making the cookies to ensure that you get the tastiest outcome possible. Be sure to read over these tips before baking your cookies for the best results.
Room Temperature Butter and Eggs
It’s important to have your butter at room temperature before creaming it with the sugars. This ensures that everything incorporates evenly and uniformly with no chunks or lumpiness. The same is true of eggs. You want your eggs to be at room temperature. Even though they’re already very liquid-like it’s easier to incorporate the yolk when the eggs are at room temperature, again, ensuring that they incorporate well.
Place the Kisses Immediately
It’s important that you place your Hershey’s Kisses in the center of your peanut butter cookies immediately. This ensures that the Kisses get a perfect consistency. The heat of the cookies will melt the bottom of the Kisses just enough to allow them to sink into the cookie and soften the entire Kiss just right.
This recipe calls for chunky peanut butter, but you can use creamy peanut butter instead, if desired. It will taste just as delicious. The texture will just be a bit different. And, you can also forgo the coarse sugar if you don’t want the added sweetness. The coarse sugar is just a little something to gild the lily. It’s not totally necessary.

For longer storage, you can freeze these cookies for up to three months. To freeze the cookies, layer the cookies in an air-tight container with parchment paper between each layer to keep the cookies from sticking.
