Twist on a Classic {Hershey Kiss Blossom Cookies + Reece's PB Cups}

I'm sure you've all had these little lovelies before: Hershey Kiss Blossoms.  Can you say, addicting? I have to make these when I know they are going somewhere, otherwise I swear I could eat an entire pan of these in one sitting. My sister used to make these all the time and she always shared a plate with me. And I'd never share them with Kyle :)

The twist on the classic that really puts these over the top, however, is to alter the recipe in the following ways:
  • Use a 2 inch dough ball (instead of 1 inch) and then roll it in sugar (use a cookie scoop or about 1 TBSP)
  • Bake the cookies in a mini muffin pan instead of on a cookie sheet*
  • Press a Reece's Peanut Butter Cup mini into the cookie after it has baked
  • Allow the cookie to cool entirely before removing it from the pan (*next time I am going to bake them in mini muffin liners so I can pop them out and cool them on a baker's rack. I think they would look darling too)
I usually make 12 of the peanut butter cup wonders (1 pan) and then it still makes about 2 half-sheet cookie pans of the classic kiss cookies. Yum.
