Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great Father’s Day. I spent the day with my Dad and the rest of my family enjoying the beautiful day on the boat. ☀⛵
I made these Funfetti Peanut Butter cookies for my Dad because his favorite cookies are peanut butter. But rather than just making plain old peanut butter cookies, I decided to make them more festive by adding SPRINKLES.
To make these Funfetti Peanut Butter Cookies I used my very popular peanut butter blossoms recipe but I let the Hershey KISS in the middle melt for a new, fun way to make peanut butter blossoms. I love the cookies & cream Hershey KISSES because they add a little oreo cookie crunch to these cookies that make them extra delicious.
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw a little behind the scenes of how I made them. If you don’t follow me on Instagram…PLEASE DO! 😍
JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:
✓ DON’T OVERMIX: With almost all my cookie recipes, I always make sure to remind you to not OVERMIX the cookie dough. Meaning, when you mix the flour mixture into the wet ingredients, only mix them together until just combined…you should still see some flour in your mixing bowl.
✓ HERSHEY KISSES: I used the cookies & cream flavored KISSES but you can use which ever flavor you would like.
✓ SPRINKLES: I love Sweetapolita’s new Sprinkle Shop! She has a TON of super fun sprinkles, like the sprinkles I used to make these cookies.
