Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

One of those few cookies from my childhood I’ve not been able to experience again as a vegan, well, the wait is over because the desire to make them was finally greater than my natural laziness. Behold the vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Kiss Cookie! Okay, I’m not going to lie. This is a little more high-maintenance than some of my recipes but it’s only because you need a specific chocolate mold and then you have to make your chocolate kisses as a separate step but then you’ll have access to chocolate kisses! (By the way, this recipe makes more kisses than cookies: boo-hoo-hoo!)

I learned in researching this recipe that Hershey’s Kisses are made on machines that kind of spurt out the melted chocolate and, yeah, I’m not getting a chocolate-spurting machine anytime soon so I did a bit more research and found an awesome – and cheap! – mold I could use on Etsy. It arrived a couple of days later and works like a charm! Now suddenly I had chocolate kisses again so they needed to be nestled in a soft peanut butter cookie. Voila! Peanut Butter Chocolate Kiss Cookies again. You’re welcome.

Vegan Chocolate Kisses

1 cups vegan, slavery-free chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vegan butter
1 teaspoon refined coconut oil

In a medium bowl, combine your ingredients. Start a small pot of about two-inches of water boiling, then put the bowl over the top. No steamy air should escape: the bowl needs to be snug over the top. As the water boils, the chocolate will melt. Stir with a spoon or silicone spatula until smooth and melted.

Have your mold on a flat surface with the melted chocolate next to it. Using a teaspoon, add chocolate to the mold until it’s filled. Gently tap the filled mold onto a table a few times to get the chocolate evenly distributed into each cavity.

Allow to harden in the refrigerator for about an hour. Release from the mold when the chocolate is solid by gently squeezing the tips.

While the chocolate is cooling, make your
Peanut Butter Cookies

2 tablespoons ground flax
6 tablespoons aquafaba
2/3 cup smooth peanut butter
cup pure maple syrup
cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour blend 
(I used this one)
cup dry sweetener
(I used coconut sugar but brown sugar would also be great here)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon salt

Whisk together the flax and aquafaba and allow to sit for ten minutes.

In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, maple syrup, milk, vanilla and flax mixture. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix in with the peanut butter. This will take a while to incorporate. It will be thick and sticky. If it is too dry, add more milk by the tablespoon.

Put in the fridge and allow to cool for 30 minutes. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Grab enough cookie dough to make about a golf ball-sized cookie and place on the cookie sheet, about two-inches apart from one another. Bake for ten minutes. Remove from the oven, allow to cool for a few minutes, then place a chocolate kiss in the center of each cookie. Put in the fridge until cool.
