One of my favorite food combinations is definitely peanut butter and chocolate. It's been that way ever since I bit into my very first Peanut Butter Blossom cookie when I was just a kid. My mom made them every year right around the holidays and they would be gone within days. There is nothing quite like that soft and chewy melt in your mouth peanut butter cookie topped with a sweet chocolate candy and a sprinkle of sugar. Thankfully, when I grew up and started making these sweet treats for my family, I didn't have to wait until the holidays to eat them. But of course, they are still part of our family tradition and we always pack a few in with other Christmas cookies for family and friends!

    My mom made these for us while growing up and I am 67. I also made them for my 4 boys and sold a lot of them too. Great cookie.
