Apparently I must connect Valentine’s Day with Cookies! That’s not necessarily a bad thing is it? I can always use a few more cookies in my life. To bad they usually end up going to my hips! These little cookies were born on Christmas. My hubs has a thing for Peanut Butter Blossoms with Rolos on them and of course being the amazing wife I am I went off to the store a few days before Christmas to grab the Rolos I needed to make the cookies. When I got to the store there were no Rolos that I could find, later he told me he found them there but I’m positive they weren’t there when I looked or I got distracted.

Want to know what I got distracted with? VALENTINE’S DAY CANDY! Yes that’s right the Christmas candy was replaced by Valentine’s Day candy BEFORE Christmas. Ok, that my friends is outrageous and ridiculous. I mean it’s bad enough Christmas comes earlier every year, but then they quit having Christmas before it even happens?! Can’t we just celebrate the holiday when they occur? I suppose if I left to find some Valentine’s Day Candy next week I’d find Easter Candy? Utter ridiculousness. Valentine Caramel Kiss Peanut Butter Blossoms ~ Soft Peanut Butter Cookies with a Caramel Filled Kiss Rolled in Pink Sugar!

  MY OTHER RECIPES


So since there was Valentine’s Day Candy out already I had to look and browse. It’s the food blogger in me. I’m always a few seasons ahead of the game. Then I saw the Caramel filled Kisses and I was like oh yes those would work instead of Rolos and then I saw the pink sugar and I was like totally grabbing that cause pink is awesome. Then I thought hey this would be a great cookie to share for Valentine’s Day. That my friends, is how my Christmas cookies ended up being Valentine’s Day Cookies. No one complained those because these Peanut Butter Blossoms are soft and chewy perfection and that caramel filled Kiss in the middle can not be beat!

Plus to help you celebrate Valentine’s day right I’ve teamed up with a bunch of awesome bloggers to giveaway $300 from Amazon! Make sure to enter the giveaway below!

    With your valentine cookies with kiss in center recipe does not say when to put kiss on top. Do I place it ontop when I take them off of oven or let cool for awhile before inserting kiss?

    • Julie Evink


      Ah so sorry! I updated it. Put the kiss in after you remove them from the oven!
