Peanut Butter Kisses

Need a kiss?

A Dark Chocolate Hershey’s Kiss, perhaps???

What goes better with a dark chocolate Hershey’s kiss than peanut butter?!?!

And this is the way to eat ’em.

Peanut Butter Kisses

adapted from King Arthur Flour


  • 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup creamy natural peanut butter (I use Skippy)
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup natural granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons skim milk
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 bag dark chocolate kisses


  1. With your hand mixer in a large bowl, mix the butter and peanut butter together.
  2. Next, add in the sugars and mix.
  3. Then, mix in the egg, vanilla extract and milk.
  4. Finally, mix in the flours.
  5. Chill the dough in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 375°.
  7. Then, shape the dough into 1″ balls (I found it easier if you spray a little bit of cooking spray into the palm of your hands).
  8. Roll the balls in sugar.
  9. Place the balls on baking sheets and with two fingers slightly push down the balls.
  10. Bake for about 10 minutes.
  11. As soon as they come out of the oven, push down a kiss candy on top until the cookie starts to crack (don’t let it crack to much).
  12. Let the cookies cool on a wire rack and enjoy!

Servings:about 30 cookies


    1. Ooo…Evan, let me know if they work out as gluten-free cookies. If you end up doing a post on your version on The Wannabe Chef, I’d love to add the link to this post. 🙂
