Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

My sister hosted Thanksgiving this year and asked me to bring a type of dessert.  I decided to make Peanut Butter Blossom cookies because I knew they would look nice on her dessert table and they are delicious.  (Who doesn’t like chocolate & peanut butter??)  To make the cookies a little more festive, I used a mixture of milk chocolate kisses, caramel kisses, and white chocolate hugs.  All of the desserts were delicious!
