Every year when Christmas rolls around I begin getting requests for Christmas cookies. Prior to having J I would make close to 50 dozen cookies for family and friends. Since he was born I make a few dozen here and there. One of my most popular cookies is always the Peanut Butter Blossom.
Peanut Butter Blossoms are simply peanut butter cookies with a chocolate kiss in the middle. I actually hate making them because I don't like peanut butter. Since I think what makes them so popular is the chocolate kiss in the center I began looking for a better cookie to make in place of them. I came up with these fun White Christmas Kiss Cookies.
White Christmas Kiss Cookies start with a simple and traditional sugar cookie dough. Before they are placed in the oven they are rolled in sprinkles. Now I know that a lot of sprinkles lose some of their color or look a little faded after they are baked but that was totally what I was looking for in these. I used "Oh Snow Cute" sprinkle mix from Sprinkle Pop. I love the combination of icy blue sprinkles with white snowflakes dotted with bright red and shiny silver. It just reminded me of a white Christmas.
I rolled my cookie balls in the sprinkles and baked them in the oven. They came out looking perfect! The blue and red sprinkles started to melt a little bit and looked like melting snow and a winter wonderland. I was totally in love with these cookies. I quickly pushes a white chocolate candy cane kiss in the middle of each one then let them cool.
The resulting cookies were fabulous. They were sweet and crunchy on the outside with the gorgeous layer of sprinkles and a creamy white chocolate candy cane kiss center. Not only are they super fun to look at, they taste amazing too!
I think these would be a fun and festive cookie to make for an exchange or to have laying out at a holiday party. Want to buy these sprinkles for yourself? Check them out HERE!
