These cookies. They can definitely be called the traditional peanut butter blossom cookies but I learned several years ago at my first Christmas with Jason’s family that they call them something else.

Apparently when they were younger, one of his cousins decided to call them “titty cookies” and the name has stuck forever. I can’t ever see these cookies without thinking of the name. I know it’s so inappropriate but lighten up – you have to admit this is pretty funny, right?! And they do *kind of* look like tits…maybe it’s a stretch but still, pretty funny!

I hope I didn’t ruin this classic holiday cookie for you. Regardless of a tit-looking cookie or not…there is no doubt that these are amazing. A soft peanut butter cookie with a chocolate Hershey kiss dotted in the center. How could you eat just one?

That’s precisely the problem. I could eat this entire plate.

When we celebrate Christmas with Jason’s family, they have an abundant amount of these cookies. Everyone always brings at least a dozen in plastic containers and they’re SO tempting because every single day, you walk by them and the waft of peanut butter and chocolate completely suck you in.

Have you ever wondered why Hershey’s hasn’t thought to make their kisses pre-unwrapped? Do you know how much money they would make around the holidays? I always have to volunteer Jason to help me unwrap all the kisses. I wish they were like chocolate chips – already naked and ready to use.

I like to use mini Reese cups instead of Hershey kisses. I like chocolate, but only in small quantities!
