I love peanut butter, and I love it on any number of things. I am also a huge fan of cookies, I really don't turn down anything sweet...ever. Peanut butter cookies are one of my favorites and also a classic, which mean that pretty much any time I have one it brings back memories of my childhood. Nothing beats a peanut butter cookie with a tall glass of milk!
Since it's fall there are all types of fall inspired foods; both sweet and savory. One of the new things I have come across this fall are the Candy Corn Kisses by Hershey's; they are awesome! There are many people that have discovered these and made their own goodies using these Kisses. I decided that I would try making something using these as well. I decided to try to put a new spin on a classic favorite; put a Candy Corn Kiss inside a peanut butter cookie...the combination is pretty tasty.
I think the peanut butter cookie is rich by itself; so with the kisses mixed in them it makes it that much more rich. This is a different combination but it's sooooo good. The burst of color that you get when you bite into the cookie is such a nice surprise and a good way to add some color for a fall themed party.
