It’s no wonder that Peanut Butter Blossom cookies are the favorite cookie of so many. Peanut butter and chocolate are old friends that go together perfectly. We decided to bring a St. Patrick’s Day twist to this delicious cookie by swapping the traditional Hershy’s Kiss with a shamrock-shaped chocolate and using green sugar on the outside of the cookie.
These cookies are so easy to make, and the St. Patty’s Day elements only added a couple of extra steps. I used my shamrock chocolate candy mold to make the shamrock “blossom” centers, and I used dyed sugar to roll the dough in before baking.
How to Dye Sugar
Have you ever dyed your sugar? Its pretty darn simple. Get your sugar, add a couple of drops of food coloring, and stir it (or shake it if you’re combining in a baggy). Keep adding additional dye or sugar until you get to your desired color.
