MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 6, 2014

Peanut Blossoms have been a favorite in our house for many years! I love the chocolate & peanut butter combination. Delicious!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 25, 2014

I love these cookies. I keep them in the freezer and warm them up in the oven for about 5 minutes.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 20, 2012

A must make! The cookies have a soft creamy texture unlike the typical crumbly peanut butter cookie recipe. With the chocolate it tastes like a peanut butter cup. Without the chocolate it is simply a delicious peanut butter cookie. I make these cookies without rolling them in colored sugar. They were a BIG hit with my family and the office.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 2, 2012

I've made this many times, even without the sugar coating. They are usually gone the same day! Instead of the Hershey kisses, I sometimes just use chocolate chips and make as bite size regular cookies. Delicious!
