Dessert of the Month: Peanut Butter Blossom Bars

Created January 12, 2017
Everyone’s favorite Christmas cookie just got cuter, easier and more crowd-friendly. We’ve reimagined peanut butter blossoms as bars and topped them with a sprinkle of sparkling sugar that feels just as special as the season.

Peanut Butter Blossom Bars

Make your holiday celebrations even sweeter with a crowd-friendly twist on a favorite Christmas cookie! Our Peanut Butter Blossom Bars have everything you love about the classic cookie, plus a little extra decadence—Hershey's™ Mini Kisses™ baked right into the dough. Even better, they only take 10 minutes to prep, thanks to Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix. Watch how fast these bars disappear when you bring a pan (or two) along to a party!

What you’ll need: 


How To:

1.  Heat your oven to 350°F. Spray only the bottom of a 9-inch square pan with cooking spray.

2.  In a large bowl, mix the cookie mix, oil, water and egg with a spoon until a stiff dough forms. Stir in Hershey's™ Mini Kisses™. Press the dough into the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of the sparkling sugar on top.


3.  Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden. Immediately top with unwrapped Hershey's™ Kisses™ in 4 rows by 4 rows. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon of sparkling sugar. Cool the pan completely on a cooling rack, about 1 hour. Cut into 4 rows by 4 rows with one of the Kisses™ in center of each bar. Store bars in an airtight container.
