Candy Cane Blossoms Recipe

Save For Later


One of the cookies we bake every year without fail are Peanut Butter Blossoms. I’m sure you’re familiar with the peanut butter cookies with a hershey kiss in the middle.

When I saw this twist on a classic, I knew I had to try it out. It features a sugar cookie with a candy cane kiss in the middle. It adds a cool burst of mint, with crunchy candy cane pieces for texture.

I think it’ll become a new Christmas tradition in our household!
