Feature: Day Candy Cane Kiss Cookies: Easy Blossom Cookie Variation

Candy Cane Kiss Cookies are a variation of the classic Hershey Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies, a traditional peanut butter cookie topped with a Hershey’s Kiss that has become a staple in American kitchens. 

This version is a simple butter cookie rolled in colored sugar … with a striped mint Hershey Kiss pressed in the middle. It’s a gorgeous cookie to make and serve for holidays, Valentine’s Day, and parties. 

And here’s a little secret: this cookie recipe is incredibly easy and quick to make! While the cookies are in the oven, you can use the time to unwrap the Hershey’s Kisses. When you remove the cookies from the oven, simply press the kisses onto the cookie tops.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 8-10 minutes
Makes about 4 dozeb cookies
