5 Ingredient No-Bake Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

It's simple: I wanted a treat for a peanut butter-loving friend, but had only a few minutes to get said treat together. The answer? A simple, chewy, delicious solution that requires only 5 ingredients.

* 1/2 cup melted peanut butter (microwaved or warmed in a pan on the stove until the consistency of syrup)
* 3 Tb softened butter  (can sub shortening/margarine, but butter tastes mucho better)
* dash salt
* 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
* chocolate kisses

Ideal consistency
Simply combine all four ingredients into a bowl, stir thoroughly with an electric mixer. The dough should be almost crumbly and not sticky. If it feels a bit sticky, add 1/8 cup of powdered sugar. Form into balls. Once formed into balls, press an unwrapped kiss into the middle. Enjoy!

medium on the right
If you make tiny balls, this recipe will make two dozen cookies. If you go for a medium sized cookie, this recipe makes about 15 cookies. (Check out the photo for medium/small sizes)
