I have been making these No Bake Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies for nearly 35 years (yikes! That really makes me sound old!) This is a no-bake cookie and a favorite of our family. Including only a few ingredients, it was simple for the kids to help with when they were young.

These cookies require only these 5 ingredients, Hershey's Kisses, sugar, peanut butter, Karo syrup and Special K cereal.

Because it is one of my son Wes’ favorite treats, Grandma Gale indulges him with his own batch every Christmas. Lucky guy!

This is a fun cookie to make with young kids. The little hands can push the Kiss into the middle and then you can form the cookie around the Kiss (they are still quite warm at this point).

These kiss cookies are great for holiday cookie exchanges, wrapped up as a homemade gift, perfect care package sweets, or just to fill your cookie jar! Make them ahead of time and freeze in a freezer bag or container for one to two months. Enjoy!
