Candy Cane Blossoms Recipe

(Last Updated On: August 11, 2020)


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!
