Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies: Peanut Butter Kisses


DAY 7: These are pretty standard “Christmas Cookie Plate” fare. You can dress them up by using different flavors of Hershey’s Kisses, or different shapes of chocolate-I love the Dove heart shaped chocolates (but they are usually only available around Valentines Day). These are made with Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Kisses. I know that a lot of people roll these in sugar before baking, but I prefer the less-messy-sugarless option.


Peanut Butter Kisses

  • Servings: about 3 dozen
  • Print


½ cup butter
½ cup coconut oil or additional butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
1 ½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses (or Dove Hearts or other “shaped” chocolate)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream butter, coconut oil (if using), peanut butter, and sugars. Beat in vanilla and eggs. Add dry ingredients. Roll dough into  balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes. Immediately press 1 Kiss (or Dove heart) into each cookie; cool.

    Would these cookies work with 100% natural peanut butter?
