What are blossom cookies?

The first blossom cookie was a peanut butter blossom cookie that was created by Freda Strasel Smith of Gibsonburg, Ohio in 1957. They say necessity is the mother of invention: she substituted a Hershey Kiss for the usual chocolate chips that she put in her peanut butter cookies. Today, blossom cookies have all types of cookie dough for the base and other candies for the center, too. See all of our blossom cookie recipes.

These are no-bake cookies.

To make these no-bake Chocolate Blossom Cookies, mix the chocolate frosting, butter and graham cracker crumbs and roll in the finely chopped almonds. Usually, the Hershey’s Kiss is pressed into the warm cookie dough, but with a no-bake cookie you need to press it in and then chill for 30 minutes. (I know. You’ll have to guard the refrigerator door! This is the hardest part of making the cookie.)
