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.
Peanut Butter Blossoms were a favorite entry in the 1957 Pillsbury Bake-Off contest.
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.

You can substitute cookie decorations or powdered sugar for the red colored sugar.
