 Chocolate, caramel, and peanut butter come together beautifully in these cookies. Classic peanut butter blossoms may be made for the Christmas cookie tray, but I like to enjoy these all year round. These soft-baked peanut butter cookies with or without the Rolo are absolutely scrumptious! Instead of Rolos, you can use Hershey’s Kisses, or even mini peanut butter cups!

  1. Two years… but the wait was totally worth it! 🙂 Just when I thought that the peanut butter/chocolate combo couldn’t get any better, you went ahead and added caramel to the mix. Oh my gosh, YUM!! These cookies look like sheer dessert perfection, Marsha. Happy New Year! I can’t wait to see what goodies you have in store for us this year. 🙂 xoxo
