Mini Candy Bar Peanut Butter Blossoms

We have a few minutes between the kids soccer games right now so I wanted to share with you a variation to the classic Peanut Butter Blossom cookie with the chocolate kisses (you know the ones I'm talking about right?!)

Now these cookies are delicious just the way they are, but to mix things up a bit (and because the candy aisle is over flowing this time of year and was calling my name) I used mini candy bars and whoppers instead of kisses.

I mean what candy bar and peanut butter combination wouldn't be good?!  Umm, they are all amazing!

This recipe makes a ton - perfect for a football or Halloween party (or send them to work with your husband like I did)!
