Topping a peanut butter cookie with a caramel filled chocolate candy gave these Rolo Peanut Blossoms a spectacular caramel advantage over their ordinary counterparts!

This month’s cookie assignment was peanut butter. I haven’t been able to participate in this group until this month and I was excited to dive in with these Rolo Peanut Blossoms.

I make the more typical peanut blossoms every Christmas using a chocolate star instead of a Hershey’s Kiss, so I began pondering the alternatives. Since the  candy is pressed into the cookie right out of the oven, and never actually baked, there were so many options. But caramel seems to win out when I’m in charge.

Peanut Butter + Caramel

If this is a new combination to you, let me tell you, it works! Warm from the oven you get some ooey gooey chocolate and caramel, but they’re just as scrumptious as they come to room temperature.

These were a hit with my two chocolate-peanut butter fans, but the hubby reminded me for the umpteenth time that he doesn’t do peanut butter desserts. Oh, well. More for me!
