As if pairing up peanut butter and chocolate weren’t addictive enough, these caramel-peanut butter cookies (topped with caramel-filled chocolate candy Kisses) will have you hoping your holiday dinner guests are too full to eat dessert ⎯ just so you can keep all these treats for yourself!
You can’t have a holiday dessert table without offerings of irresistible cookies … and these definitely qualify as irresistible. Putting a chocolate Kiss on top of something already so delicious rockets this caramel-peanut butter cookie to the sweet stratosphere.
If a regular chocolate Kiss is good, a caramel-filled chocolate Kiss is a can’t-stop-eating holiday dessert. Our advice is to make a couple extra dozen of these holiday goodies because they will go fast!
Beat the egg before blending it in
Add the flour mixture to caramel-peanut butter cookie batter
If you want to dress these cookies up a little, roll the dough balls in colored sugar (such as red and green for Christmas, or blue for Hanukkah) instead of regular white. You could also try a sugar-sprinkles combo.
Of course, if you’re not enamored of caramel, you can use plain milk chocolate or dark chocolate Hershey’s Kisses on top instead ⎯ and these little baked desserts will be just as scrumdiddlyumptious.
