Dream Dishes: SJD Peterson’s Easy Holidays Treats

November 11, 2015

With my busy writing schedule I don’t have a lot of free time so I thought I’d share simple and easy recipes with you that you can make in moments rather than hours. Both are kid favorites and so easy they can give you a hand.


The first is something I have been making with my kids for years and was a classroom favorite around the holidays.



1 Bag Hersey Kisses

1 Bag MM peanuts

1 Bag small pretzel twists.



Pre-heat oven to warm (170 degrees) Lay pretzels out on a cookie sheet and place on unwrapped Hersey kiss on each one. Place in oven for approximant 5 minutes or until the kiss begins to get soft (not all melty). Remove from oven and set one MM on top pushing down just hard enough to set it in the chocolate. Let cool and enjoy!!!!


Get creative. Try using a Rolo and candied pecan or a mini peanut buttercup topped with cashews. OMG what about a white chocolate kiss topped with a strawberry or Raspberry?  The yumminess is as unlimited as your imagination.



This is another super easy 3 ingredient recipe! (4 if you include the topping)


1-16 oz jar crunchy peanut butter

1 box brown sugar

3 eggs.



Preheat oven on 350 degrees. Mix all three ingredients into large mixing bowl. Spoon out a tablespoon of batter onto a non-stick cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.

(Optional) add a Hersey kiss to the top while cookie is still warm.

Makes 2 dozen
