Kris Kingle Peanut Butter Cups

These are fanastic. I have been making them for a few years now and everyone loves them. I have tried different chocolates and they are all great. This year I used the new cherry chocolates and they were yummy. Perfect for cookie exchanges. They now ask me to make them.


Kris Kringle Cookies were a hit... during Hallowee

I actually made these cookies for a Halloween party that my fiancee and I hosted. Instead of the Jingle Bell chocolates I dropped in large chocolate morsels. They were a hit! I did not realize that so many people would like them. My favorite part of baking them was the cleanup of the tray. There was none thanks to the cupcake liners. I used the foil ones, so I was able to get more on one cookie sheet than one cupcake tray. Great cookies for any party! Love peanut butter? Just add extra peanut butter to the recipe. They still come out great!
