a few tips

Drippy peanut butter vs. non-drippy: If you use peanut butter that is similar to the original Skippy or Jiff, then start with 1 cup of peanut butter and go up from there. You will likely need less peanut butter than if you are using drippy peanut butter. 

Don’t skip the milk: The milk is added to hydrate the flour so that the cookies don’t fall apart after baking. 

Choose your favorite Hershey’s kiss: Feel free to use dark chocolate, milk chocolate, mint chocolate kisses or whatever variety you prefer!

Skip the sugar rolling if you’d like: Rolling the cookie dough ball in granulated sugar is a traditional step when making a peanut butter blossom, feel free to skip it if you don’t want added sugar.
