Sweet “Heart” Peanut Blossoms

by Mindy on February 2, 2012

This really isn’t a new recipe.  Melanie posted our Mom’s Peanut Blossoms ages ago, but this Valentine’s version turned out so cute that I thought I would share the idea with you too!  I used Hershey’s Bliss heart shaped chocolates instead of Hershey kisses, but you could use any heart shaped chocolates you can find.  This is a great cookie to make with kids.  They love pressing the chocolates into the hot cookies.  Just make sure you make some extras to share the love with some beloved family or friends this Valentine’s season!  I’m including the recipe again here for convenience sake.  Enjoy!

Janelle… I’m glad you liked this idea! But seriously now, you’re taking these cookies to the next level with Reese’s hearts! I love it. And now I know what I am going to try with the next batch. :) Happy Valentine’s!

I have made these twice already for Valentines this year, haha! They are SOOOO good! I add a little extra salt since I love how it brings out the flavor of chocolate. Mom’s recipe is seriously the BEST! I think these are my favorite cookies! :)
