Fluffy Peanut Butter Kisses

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: this man loves chocolate and peanut butter.

Nick sneaks spoonfuls of peanut butter straight from the jar, and peanut butter cups don’t stand a chance in our candy bowl. But he is particular about his peanut butter kiss cookies. He prefers fluffy to flat, and so I put him in charge of baking them this year.

He followed his mother’s recipe that calls for just four ingredients, plus sugar for coating and Hershey’s kisses for topping.

Needless to say — they didn’t last long in our house.

Perhaps there will be more waiting for us in California?
