Remember the peanut butter cookies with Hershey’s kisses that everyone makes for the Holidays? This is my spin on those cookies, using incredibly clean ingredients and Hu Kitchen Dark Chocolate bars. You will never miss the original with this one!

The Holidays can be a difficult time for those on special diets. There is still some wiggle room when you live a Paleo lifestyle and If you want to treat yourself, then by all means, treat yourself. You can still maintain good choices and still enjoy something sweet. Depending on how strict you are, you can even swap out the almond butter for peanut butter and it will taste a bit more like the original.
