Cherry KissesRecipe for Cherry Kisses. This is a really NEW recipe, because I just made it up! I am starting to make my Christmas cookies and freeze them. Hershey just came out with a cherry cordial kiss, so with the help of a couple of different cookie recipes, I came up with this one. My little 2 1/2 year old grandson "helped" mix. He waited until I stopped the mixer and he added each ingredient.

Peanut Butter Stuffed Cookie on plate

Peanut Butter Stuffed CookiesThese cookies are for peanut butter lovers! They are peanut butter cookies, stuffed with a gooey peanut butter mixture, topped with peanut brittle M&M's. You can swap out the peanut butter cookie exterior with any type of cookie dough you like. I also like a chocolate chip cookie exterior variation. For this recipe, I used a cookie mix, made to its directions on the back. You can get creative with these. These cookies are pretty huge, so you can split one to share with a loved one and watch them ooze!

Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter MeringuesI originally made these for a friend who loves the taste of chocolate peanut butter cups but finds them too heavy. This is the perfect solution! They're so good, I now prefer these over peanut butter cups, myself. The peanut butter meringues are so crisp and light, even dipped in chocolate, they make you feel much less guilty.
