I know I have mentioned it before, but really, it bears repeating ... I'm over winter and I'm ready for all things spring. You will see that most of my recipes will start shifting in that direction - and to be perfectly honest, it's hard not to be in a spring mood when you're breaking weather records left and right! We've not only broke the daytime high record numerous times but we've also reached 90 degrees the earliest ever on record here in Phoenix!

I think it's safe to say that winter is the furthest thing from my mind with weather like this, eh?!

While I was doing my regular grocery shopping earlier this week, I decided to check out the whole store. I'm usually a stick to my list kind of person - except when the seasons change or when holidays are coming up. I like to browse the aisles for new products or things that I think I can use to make something fun or yummy for the blog! Okay, my family kinda likes it too! :)

Knowing that they were switching out all of the Valentine's stuff for spring stuff, I had to take a stroll down the candy aisle - of course. Hershey's has a new kind of KISSES out right now ... have you seen them?! Maybe you have heard about them because it seems like everyone is talking about them. They're Carrot Cake flavored KISSES and I think they taste pretty darn good! So good in fact, that I was inspired to switch up one of our favorite cookies - Peanut Butter Blossoms - and turn it into a yummy treat perfect for spring.

I got everything off to an easy start by using a carrot cake pre-packaged cake mix! With just a few other common ingredients, these cookies were done in no time!

By the way, this is not a sponsored post - I just really enjoyed these cookies and wanted to share the recipe with you!! :)
