Pumpkin Blossoms: a fall treat based off your favorite pb blossom cookie. Add a hershey kiss in any flavor!

I’m like a yo-yo going from a salted caramel treat, to a pumpkin dessert, to salted caramel decadence, to pumpkin again. Please tell me you don’t mind this personality disorder of mine.

I feel like there are so many fall dessert recipes I have up my sleeve and so little time. After Halloween, it’s time to switch gear and start getting you to think about Christmas treats.

And I know once Christmas is over, we’re all on healthy choices, so it’s time to break out the butter now. Am I right?

Last year I shared a delicious pumpkin blondie recipe with you. It occurred to me I should turn them into little cookie bites.

I know peanut butter blossoms are always a huge hit in my house. A cookie with a big chunk of candy in the center. I hear ya. And I’ve done the brownies with the candy center too.

But today my friends, it’s all about the love of pumpkin.

Have you been to Target or Walmart lately and walked down the holiday candy aisle. Good golly there are new treats every year. These pumpkin blondies were inspired by the Hershey’s Pumpkin Kisses. While I’m not a huge fan of eating them on their own, inside one of these blossom cookies is another story! I also alternated with original chocolate kisses, which were a fantastic choice as well.

I’m pretty sure anything with caramel would be divine in here. Heck, toss in a snickers and I’d eat that too.

Hi, my name is Aimee, and I love pumpkin desserts.

Which candy would you choose for these chewy pumpkin blossoms?

  15. Between Jocelyn and you posting on IG, I knew exactly what to look for at Target yesterday. Thanks for the heads up. My basket was full of all kinds of fall baking sweet treats and candy. Loving what you did with the kisses!

  16. Great minds think alike!! It’s funny because I noticed last week we posted something very similar on the same day, too! The white chocolate bark. Love it 🙂

  17. I know! People always are like “you want to rush into the seasons too quickly” but I’m like “YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH TIME I NEED TO FIT IN ALL MY FALL/HALLOWEEN/HOLIDAY TREATS!” And then they stare at me. >_< But dude these pumpkin blossoms look awesome and perfectly autumn appropriate!

  18. oh… I just fell in love with this recipe! It looks so tasty! I’m feeling so hungry right now… 🙂

  20. These look like great treats to make for Christmas baking. They look yummy.

  22. I’m a sucker for little pop in your mouth treats and completely in love with these pumpkin blossoms. Yum!

  23. Peanut butter blossoms are one of my favorite cookie — I love this pumpkin-y twist!

  24. At least your yo-yoing between pumpkin and caramel! I’m just stuck on pumpkin 24/7, and I’m pretty sure my readers are going to be super annoyed before October even hits. But I can’t seem to think of anything else — not even chocolate! *hangs head in shame* It sounds like I need to go to Target or Walmart for some sweet inspiration. 😉 Love these cookie blossoms!! Pinned!

  25. I need to get outside of my apple and pumpkin binge – caramel all the way! I’ve never had anything other than a pb blossom and I love the pumpkin addition! It gives it such a fun color too. You are so creative with all these seasonal candies!

  27. Super mega LOVE these! Can you believe I haven’t even had a pumpkin kiss this season yet? I know, #badfoodblogger. Must remedy that!

  28. Steph

    I bought Pumpkin Kisses purposely to make these! Could you tell me what the texture of the cookie is? Cakey or chewy like traditional pb blossoms? Also, could I make them the traditional way of rolling into balls and baking on a cookie sheet?

  29. saira

  30. nicki sgro

  32. Beth Nottingham

    Are those really Hershey’s Kisses or are they Chocolate and Butterscotch Chips? They look so small to be Kisses.

    I followed this recipe exactly and they came out dry tasting. How do I fix this? Less flour? More pumpkin?

  35. Kat Odom

    Can you use canned pumpkin pie filling and leave out the spices?

  36. Jana

    Can I use mini muffin liners for these?  I always have a hard time getting this kind of treat out of the mini muffin tin without destroying it.  I would spray the inside of the liner like I would the tin.  Thank you for your advice!

  37. Desserts are not only delicious but the shape is also very beautiful.Thank you!

  38. These look so delicious! Pinned!
