“These Peanut Butter Blossoms are made with a cake mix, peanut butter and a peanut butter filled heart smack dab in the middle. The easiest way to make Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies for sweetheart holiday!"

Valentine's Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies Servings – 24 Prep Time – 5 Minutes Cook Time – 10 Minutes Ingredients:

1 pkg. yellow or red velvet cake mix

1 cup peanut butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup butter softened to room temperature

1 egg

24 Heart peanut butter filled candies, unwrapped

1/2 cup coarse sanding sugar, colors of choice


Preheat oven to 350°.

Prepare a cookie sheet by lining with a silicone mat or parchment paper or lightly greasing it with non-stick cooking spray.

Place sanding sugar in a small bowl and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, add the cake mix, peanut butter, vanilla, butter and egg and mix with an electric mixer for 1-2 minutes or until well blended.

Scoop the dough with a cookie scoop and roll into 1" balls.

Roll each dough ball in the sugar and place on the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.

Bake for 10 minutes or until edges barely begin to brown.

Press one peanut butter heart into the center of each ball, barely flattening the dough.

Cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. Chocolate will set back up within an hour.

Box up and give to your sweetheart!
