Peanut Butter & Chocolate Star Cookies

A soft peanut butter cookie with a milk chocolate star makes for a great Christmas cookie. If you can’t find chocolate stars at the store, use a Hershey Kiss. Roll the peanut butter dough into a ball, roll it in sugar and bake. Take it out of the oven and press the chocolate star into the center and let cool.

  1. They look lovely and I was wondering where you’d get these chocolate stars too. I wonder if I’ll have to drive to our Amish village (2 hours away called St Jacob’s) for these too.

    • Hahaha hopefully not. They are made by Brach’s candy. Although I always pick up mine at Amish country my followers said they get their’s at Target, Wal-Mart and grocery stores. They said at Christmas they are with the holiday baking ingredients. Others said they found them in the bulk candy aisle.

      • I’m not sure if we’ll have them at Canada but will take a look at Walmart next time I’m there. Thanks for the tip!

    • Ab – I saw your comment while scrolling to leave my comment. I grew up in Canada but lived in the U.S. for 55 years. When I was a kid they had either Rowntree’s or Jersey Milk chocolate stars … a long time ago. I visited St. Jacob’s once and stayed at Jacobstettel. The owner was very nice and it was such a cozy little place to stay.

  2. All these goodies as Christmas nears – nothing better than Christmas goodies. I don’t know how I wasn’t fat with all the treats at the holidays. And my mom had her fruitcake she nibbled on and a friend of the family always sent a big Babka … how did we button our pants?
