Chocolate Candy Cane Blossoms

Chocolate Candy Cane Blossoms

Peanut butter blossoms are a pretty common Christmas cookie and while I love them and think they are great I decided to change mine up a bit this year. Instead of peanut butter I opted to use the new chocolate spreads available and instead of plain Hershey Kisses I opted to go with the Candy Cane Kisses instead. This took them from the traditional to the Chocolate Candy Cane Blossoms that are a minty, chocolatey delight that are perfect for the holidays.

One of the things I love about these cookies is that they bake up quickly. They are also a perfect cookie for any mint fans out there as these will provide a healthy dose of mint but in a good way. These cookies do not puff up as much as their peanut butter brothers and the white chocolate kisses seem to melt more than the milk chocolate ones do too but that just makes them a lovely, gooey minty delight.

    […] These look somewhat familiar, don’t they? Traditionally you see these cookies made of peanut butter with a chocolate kiss on top. However, to stick with the peppermint theme, this recipe offers a lot of peppermint in a yummy yummy way! And…for those with peanut allergies in the family, you don’t have to worry about this plate being in the room (please always read the labels on your ingredients to make sure that they are safe to consume for your specific allergy). You can find this recipe at My Sweet Sanity! […]
