Do I need to chill the dough before baking

Yes, the cookie dough need to chill in refrigerator for about 30 minutes to an hour.

This process is very important because it helps to hold their shape while baking.

It also prevents the dough from getting flat (spreading out) too.

How long will these Hershey’s Peanut Butter Blossoms stay fresh

These easy Hershey’s Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies stay fresh when they are stored in an air tight container for about 5 to 7 days at room temperature on the counter top.

Lay each cookie in a single layer. Then add the second layer in between each Hershey’s kiss.

You can also store the baked cookies in an air tight container in the freezer for up to 2 to 3 months.

Hershey’s Kisses Substitute

While the Hershey’s Kiss is the blossom part of each cookies, you can substitute it with these other candies:

  • Chocolate hearts
  • Rolo’s
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (remember to remove the wrapper)
  • Caramels
  • Any other favorite candy

Can I freeze these Hershey’s Peanut Butter Blossoms

I recommend freezing the unbaked cookie balls (without rolling them on the sugar) in the freezer for about 3 months.

Roll the balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and flash freeze them for about an hour.

Then place them in an airtight container and into the freezer.

When you are ready to bake, allow to thaw in the fridge overnight and then roll them into the sugar to coat.

Bake them and then add the Hershey’s chocolate kisses in the center.
