WITCH HAT COOKIES USING PEANUT BUTTER BLOSSOMS

To make these easy witch hat cookies were making a few slight adjustments to decorating our tried and true fluffy peanut butter blossom cookie recipe. It’s always a huge hit and so fast to whip up.

HOW TO MAKE WITCH HAT COOKIES

There are not a ton of ingredients (hallelujah!). All you need is:

  • peanut butter
  • butter
  • sugar (brown and white)
  • egg
  • flour
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • and Hershey kisses
  • colored chocolate melts

HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER BLOSSOM COOKIE DOUGH

  1. Start by beating your butter. You do not want melted butter, cold butter us better.
  2. Add your peanut butter and beat together
  3. Add in your white and brown sugar
  4. beat all ingredients together

Next Add your egg, flour, baking soda and salt all while beating.

CHILL YOUR DOUGH

This dough does best when it is chilled. Place the bowl in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

ROLL INTO BALLS

Using a 1 tbsp cookie scoop and roll into balls.

PROTIP using the cookie scoop will keep the balls uniform so they cook evenly. Smaller cookies will look more like a hat with the Hershey kisses.  

BAKE YOUR COOKIES

On a greased or parchment paper place your cookie dough balls. Bake for 7 minutes. When the timer goes off place one chocolate melt at the top of the cookie and insert back into the oven for another 60 seconds. Your chocolate melt should be nice and soft by this point.

HOW TO ADD YOUR CHOCOLATE HERSHEY KISS

Now that the colored chocolate melt has been melted take your unwrapped Hershey kiss and while slightly twisting press into the cookie. The colorful chocolate melt will look like a band around the witches hat. Add sprinkles or a small ball for added decorations.

HOW TO CURVE THE TOP OF YOUR WITCHES HAT

It is so fun and simple to create the cute, floppy hat look with the Hershey kiss. After you place the Hershey kiss into the warm cookie the Hershey kiss will also warm up and become soft. When the cookies are cooled the Hershey kiss will still be soft. This is the time to slightly press the tip of the Hershey kiss to the side.

If you push it while it is too warm the kiss will mush or stick to your finger. So make sure to wait until the cookie has cooled and the kiss has started to firm up again.

HOW TO STORE WITCH HAT COOKIES?

You can store leftover witch hat cookies in an air tight container like a plastic bag or container.

    Add hershey kisses in the center right after they come out of the oven. As you are gently pressing down twist the hershey kiss into the chocolate melt so it folds around the bottom of the kiss. Remove immediately from hot cookie sheet.

I did notice some colors of chocolate melts did not melt as easily as others. If you notice this, melt the chocolate melts in the microwave add a small dollop to the bottom of the Hershey kiss and the twist and press into the middle of the hot cookie.
