No-Bake Peanut Butter Blossoms

We've given these classic cookies two upgrades: more peanut butter flavor, in the form of cereal crumbs, and a no-bake method, so they are even easier to make.

3 cups peanut butter cereal puffs, such as Puffins

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter, plus more as needed 

1/3 cup corn syrup

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

24 chocolate drop candies, such as Hershey's Kisses or Hugs 


  1. Pulse the peanut butter cereal in a food processor until finely ground. You should have about 1 1/2 cups of crumbs. Add the brown sugar and pulse to combine. Pulse in the 3/4 cup peanut butter until combined. Add the corn syrup and vanilla and pulse until the dough holds together when pressed with your fingers. If the dough is still crumbly, add another tablespoon or two of peanut butter and pulse again. 
  2. Roll the mixture into 24 balls and space them apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Gently press each ball with your palm to flatten slightly. Spread a little peanut butter on the bottom of the chocolate candies and press one to adhere to each cookie.
