Simple Famous Kiss Cookies [Hoilday Ideas]

I am a big sucker for chocolate and peanut butter! These famous kiss cookies are one of my favorites to eat and also make! They usually don’t last very long because everyone eats them up so quickly!

I love this recipe because its versatile. You can skip the chocolate add a little more peanut butter and just do a peanut butter cookie. You can change the chocolate to match holiday themes or even add sprinkles as well depending on the occasion. 

Get inspired with my other ideas!

The Famous Kiss Cookie Recipe!

The ingredients are pretty straight forward and easy to come by, I typically have most of them on hand so I can easily make this recipe if a craving persists. Plus it’s fun to involve the kids to help roll the dough!

I love to involve my kids in my baking! It teaches them so many good things, that they can apply to their day to day lives, as they grow up! It’s a fun project for them to feel involved and the end product is very rewarding and delicious. 

This recipe, is simple to make because, I basically just throw all my ingredients in my stand mixer. I use a small bowl to put the sugar in for easy coating. Baking spatulas, come in super handy for bowl scraping! Plus, its fun to lick 👅 the batter off! I just love to use my handy cooking sheets for the baking process!

Don’t skip the step of placing the kiss cookies back in the oven WITH the kisses on. Just do it for a min or two! This makes the chocolate soft and gooey once they are cooled!
