Inspiration

The inspiration for these cookie butter blossoms came from the Hershey’s Kisses Deluxe Chocolates Gift Box. Several Christmas’ ago, I saw them while shopping and couldn’t stop thinking about it!  

These deluxe Hershey kisses are three times the size of a traditional chocolate kiss and are filled with whole hazelnuts.  Epic if you ask me… and I knew I had to use them.

What a better way to utilize a chocolate kiss than in a blossom cookie!

More Blossoms

These Deluxe Cookie Butter Blossoms aren’t the first of this style of cookie I’ve made.

There’s a blossom cookie for everyone!

Recipe

For this recipe, I used my peanut butter blossom cookie recipe and adapted it for these cookies.  

The dough of the cookie is essentially the same replacing the peanut butter for cookie butter and rolling in dark brown coarse sugar rather than granulated white sugar.

The cookies themselves are also larger to accommodate for the size of the chocolate kiss which means more cookie to enjoy!  YES!

The recipe for the dough of this cookie would be a great alternative for a person with nut allergies.  

They could still enjoy a blossom cookie without the nuts by simple using cookie butter and a nut-free chocolate on top!  

No more having to skip out on these holiday cookies anymore!

Happy Baking!

Finally got the chocolate kisses and ready to make these. But the recipe directions makes note of adding milk but nothing about milk in the ingredients. I'll wait to hear from you before I try these cause they look, as usual with your recipes, awesome!! Thanks for all you do!!

Ha! It's because I copied the instructions from a previous recipe (cause I'm lazy lol) and forgot to omit the milk from the instrutions. It's all fixed now. Thanks for catching that for me!
