Christmas Kiss Blossoms without peanut butter are the PERFECT cookies to make with the family!

Christmas Kiss Blossoms

Christmas Kiss Blossoms have been a tradition in my family since I can remember. I always remember going to my Grandma Jean’s house on Christmas Eve and having some Christmas Kiss Blossoms. These are not only nostalgic for me but are super festive and delicious!

Mike and I make these without peanut butter as our two teen sons have allergies to peanuts. The funny thing is that we like them better than the original recipe (and we LOVE peanut butter). So no disappointment here. We hope you enjoy these nut-free Christmas favorites as much as we do!

A Special Christmas Giveaway!

Christmas came quick this year! At least it feels that way when everywhere you turn there are signs of Christmas all around, yet we haven’t even gotten to Thanksgiving yet. It seems the Christmas season starts earlier and earlier every year. It IS the most wonderful time of the year after all, so why not celebrate for as long as we can, right?!

To help celebrate this Christmas season, I’m teaming up with a group of amazing bloggers to bring you the 10th annual Christmas Blessings Giveaway!! I can’t believe we have been blessing families for TEN years!! We all love doing this and we look forward to it every year! While the giveaway has changed and evolved a bit over the years, many of participating bloggers have stayed the same – so many generous and dedicated women are behind this giveaway.

This year we will have FOUR winners!! Each winner will get a $200 gift card to wherever they choose – a restaurant, clothing store, grocery store, online retailer – any place that offers gift cards!

There are lots of entry options in the Rafflecopter form below – the more you enter, the better your chance of winning!  I know it can seem tedious and time consuming to go through all the entries, but isn’t a chance at $200 worth it?

  1. I like the idea of the Christmas kisses w/o peanut butter. I am a teacher and some of my students are allergic to nuts. This is something I can make during the Christmas party. Thank you

  2. Interesting to know that they are still tasty without the peanut butter. I have had these a few times as a child, but they were not very popular with my family and therefore have not been popular with my kids either…but I love the red, green, and white that you did to make them more festive. ❤️

  3. I never thought to make these without peanut butter. I’ll have to try your recipe. I also never did color them like you do. We just used peanut butter with the chocolate kiss, but no food coloring.

  4. My mom always made these, too— they’re so classic! I love your red & green spin on them. I have a recipe for gluten free on cookies that I makes with the kisses, too. 🙂

  5. I’m laughing as I read this blog because I was just talking to a friend about the peanut butter blossoms earlier today, due to a cookie swap that we’re doing at church, and now I’m seeing a non-peanut butter recipe. The peanut butter ones are one of my favorite cookies but I also know about how some recipes actually taste better without the one ingredient that it’s known for. I have a mystical bar recipe that we made one time without the chocolate chips in attempt to have a healthier snack item; it tasted so much better that it is one of the few items that I refuse to use chocolate in-we now add blueberries and pecans to it instead. I’m looking forward to trying out this non-peanut butter blossom:)
