Festive Peanut Butter Blossoms

Everyone loves peanut butter, especially when chocolate is involved — that’s why peanut butter blossoms are one of the most classic, staple holiday cookies in the book!

As much as I love the original peanut butter blossoms, I wanted to make something a little more ~festive~ to shake up the usual cookie line up. To spice up this recipe, I added green + red sprinkles to the dough + used Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses instead of the classic chocolate option [trust me, you will LOVE these]. This new combo is the perfect amount of chewy cookie mixed with the fun crunch of sprinkles + peppermint from the Candy Cane Kisses!


  • 1 3/4 cups All-Purpose Flour [I used a GF blend]
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 4 oz [1 stick] Butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Smooth Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar, plus more for rolling
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tbsp Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup green, red, + white sprinkles
  • 1 package Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses, foil removed


#1] Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda + salt — set aside.

#2] Using an electric mixer, cream together butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar + brown sugar. Add egg, milk + vanilla — beat until well blended.

#3] Gradually add flour mixture + mix until combined. Fold in sprinkles gently.

#4] Roll dough into small balls + roll in granulated sugar before placing on a baking sheet.

#5] Bake until very light brown + puffed — about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove sheet from oven + lightly press a kiss into the center of each cookie — allowing it to crack slightly.

#6] Let cool + enjoy!
