Happy New Year, friends!

Has is seriously taken me nearly 2 years to put up a blossom cookie recipe on the blog?? Well, to make up for it, today I bring you these delicious Rolo Peanut Butter Blossoms. There. 😉

Ingredients for Rolo Peanut Butter Blossoms:

  • plain OR all-purpose flour
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • unsalted butter
  • caster OR granulated sugar
  • light brown sugar
  • large egg
  • smooth peanut butter
  • vanilla extract
  • Rolos (or any other chocolate caramel candies)

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!

You are combining two childhood favorites for me! Peanut butter blossoms were always the cookies I'd snatch right away, and Rolos were an obsession. These sound marvelous!
