Super Simple Peanut Butter Blossoms

¬† ¬† ¬†Chocolate and peanut butter are 2 of my children’s favorite things. When I told them that I had a recipe that included both, that they could make (mostly) on their own, they were very excited.

Super Simple Peanut Butter Blossoms

1 c. peanut butter

1 c. sugar

1 egg

24 unwrapped chocolate candies

extra sugar (optional)

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F
  • In a medium bowl, mix your peanut butter, sugar and egg. Mix until well blended.
  • Chill dough for 20-30 minutes
  • Roll dough into 1/2 tsp balls
  • Optional step – roll balls in extra sugar
  • Place balls 2″ apart on ungreased cookie sheet
  • Bake 6-8 minutes, or until golden
  • Remove from oven, cool for 2 minutes
  • Gently press a candy into the center of each ball
  • Remove to cooling rack, cool completely
  • Enjoy!!!


How simple is that? The only thing that the kids really need me to do for them is take the cookies in and out of the oven.
