HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THUMBPRINT HERSEY KISS COOKIES:

Peanut butter kiss cookies ingredients:

  1. Corn syrup
  2. Brown sugar
  3. Peanut butter, creamy
  4. Vanilla
  5. Rice Krispies cereal
  6. Chocolate kisses

Instead of a Hershey’s kiss, you could also use a peanut butter cup or even a Rolo. Or any of your favorite flavors of kisses. 

Key tools will you need to prepare the no bake peanut butter kiss cookies:

  • Saucepan 
  • Wooden spatula (THESE are some great ones!)
  • Cookie sheet (check THESE out)
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Wax paper or parchment paper

EASY NO BAKE DIRECTIONS

Start by grabbing your medium saucepan and mix together the corn syrup and brown sugar over medium heat. Make sure to stir continuously until the syrup and brown sugar mixture comes to a full boil.

PRO TIP: Make sure that the corn syrup and brown sugar come to a full boil or else the cookies won’t come together.

Then take the saucepan off the heat, and add in the peanut butter and vanilla extract and stir it in well. 

In your large mixing bowl, pour all of the rice krispies cereal. Then, add in the peanut butter mixture to the cereal. Stir everything up well until all of the cereal is well coated. 

Now, grab some of the rice krispy mixture into your hand and roll it into a small ball, about 1 ½ inch or so and then place it onto the cookie sheet lined with waxed paper or parchment paper.

Then, using your thumb, press a small indent into the ball and then place a chocolate kiss into the indent and continue to push the kiss down a little further. This should form the cookie around the base of the kiss. 

Once that is done, let the no bake peanut butter kiss cookies sit and cool for a few minutes until they set up fully. Then, be sure to store them in an airtight container to keep them from drying out.

    I made this recipe as part of our Christmas goodies. I must say it is delicious I didn't have the same problem with sticky if anything it was a little dry. I only got about 18 cookies but it was delicious and I'm going to use the leftover crumble to make some kind of bark with chocolate. Thank you it's a good idea!
