Classic Peanut Butter Blossoms are the epitome of the holidays! Peanut butter cookies rolled in sugar and topped with Hershey's Chocolate Kisses are the perfect cookies for a Christmas cookie exchange. Of course, you can enjoy these Peanut Butter Blossoms round!
Peanut Butter Blossoms are such a classic cookie that most people make only during the holidays. Can anyone tell me why? I've been hunting for the reason that these aren't enjoyed all year long! There isn't a seasonal ingredient in the recipe, so I'm baffled.
One reason I do not make them all year long is because I forget about them. Maybe that's your reason, too? As I've stated before, I love the chocolate and peanut butter combination so I'm not sure why I forget to make these "easy to whip up" cookies. But, here's your reminder. And, maybe I'll just have to remind you (and myself) again this spring, summer and fall!
You Can Freeze Peanut Butter Blossoms
The great thing about these cookies, as with many other cookie recipes, is you can keep them in the freezer. When someone comes over, take the Peanut Butter Blossoms out of the freezer and let thaw on the counter top. They don't take long at all to get to room temperature and ready to enjoy!
