The Star: Peanut Buttery Chocolate Goodness

5 stars from 5 ratings of Hurry up Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies with a Kiss

This Christmas baking time I have done something that I would have thought I would never do.

Oh, Yes, I have eaten the often available yummy goodies, I admit that.

But I have done something many may see as far worse: I used shortcuts.


  • Wanting to still prepare the goodies of the holiday, I used prepared cookie mixes for two cookies only adding my own twist to the prepared mix.
  • The one I used as the foundation for this recipe is put out by General Mills as a Peanut Butter cookie.
  • Working with the packaged mix, adding a bit of this, and a sprinkle of magic, a very delightful, quick cookie has emerged. I hope you have the chance to give this a try.

A Great Little Cookie to Make with Kids

These cookies are very much like the Peanut Butter blossom cookies that I used to make but with a greater intensity of flavor and texture. You will find you are pleasantly surprised at how they turn out.

They will disappear very quickly. My eldest grandson told me last night that they are 'sooo good. Not crunchy, but tender and popping with flavor!' That was enough proof for me that they are as good as I thought they are.

Perhaps you can try them sometime. Easy and quick, a great cookie to make with children. They can unwrap the kisses, too, and help put them on the cookies when it is time.



A Version that Sounds Outrageous!!

Two best friends: not essential but oh, so, helpful

Two tools that add to the 'hurry up' aspect of this cookie are"

  • parchment paper
  • a cookie dough scoop

The parchment paper hastens clean up and insures that your cookies can be lifted with ease from the baking sheet.

The cookie dough scoop insures uniform size and shape which insures that baking for each cookie will be accomplished as desired.


A song about this cookie...no Kiss is needed on these cookies

A Lovely Little Hint

If you manage to have any left over cookies:

pop them in the microwave for about 15 seconds...and it is just like they have come right out of the oven.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min

      I'm in the mood for some chocolate right now. It's been quite a day, as it often is, and every now and then chocolate is in order, if you know what I mean.

      hi again Sylvestermouse

      These are some of the best...I have made them many times but tweaking just seemed to make these really moist, tender, and yummy.

      I hope you have a chance to give them a try.

      Yes Rtalloni These are a favorite that my grandson asks me to make a couple of times a year. Valentine's Day or his birthday (the 22nd of Feb) would be an excellent time to make them in heart shapes.

      Isn't it lovely that Valentine's Day comes at just about the time we are over the Christmas cookie rush and beginning to want another little treat? These Christmas kisses would be a very nice addition to a Valentine's Day plate of cookies! That they include Chocolate actually makes them good for year round treat times... :)

      I have made these before but found that by changing it up a bit they could be made pretty quickly and they came out to be some of the best we have ever enjoyed.

      Your grandkids could help you make them. My four year old Lil'Man loves to help me bake.

      Hi Au fait Yes they are so easy and forgiving to make. I love that about them.

      I am not baking so much this December either but once in a while do make these to stash in Christmas baskets.

      Have a very Merry Christmas too....

      These are delicious cookies and so easy to make! I used to make them for Christmas every year beginning when I was about 16. Now I don't do a lot at Christmas, but over the years these cookies were favorites every year.

      Blessings to you and your family this Christmas season! Merry Christmas!
