Chocolate Peanut Butter Buckeye Cookies take everything you love about a peanut butter ball (a “Buckeye”) and combine it with a soft and chewy chocolate cookie.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Buckeye Cookies come from my blog friend Miranda’s new cookbook, Easy Homemade Cookie Cookbook, and combine my favorite things – chocolate and peanut butter.
This is how our current evenings go – I get off work, pick up the girls, come home, immediately take Rosie up for a bath, give her a bottle, put her to bed, then move onto dinner for the rest of us (then on to bath and bedtime ritual for Julia).
Most nights go pretty smoothly.
I usually set Julia up with her tablet or a toy for the 15 minutes I’m getting Rosie situated.
However, the other night, I was rocking Rosie when Julia ran in crying. She had put her dirty socks into her hamper, which is in her closet, and pinched her little hand in the door when she was closing it.
It was pandemonium for about 15 minutes.
Everything eventually settled down, Bob got home, and peace was restored.
After both girls were sleeping, I decided to bake.
Miranda of Cookie Dough and Oven Mitt sent over her brand new cookbook and these Chocolate Peanut Butter Buckeye Cookies immediately caught my attention.
Buckeyes are a pretty popular recipe on my site and adding them to chocolate cookies make them even better. Plus, this cookie is entirely from scratch but really easy.
Miranda’s new cookbook, The Easy Homemade Cookie Cookbook, has so many recipes I’m excited to try. Julia LOVES neapolitan ice cream so those neapolitan Cookies on the cover are going to get made soon.
You can preorder the book now and I’ll be GIVING ONE AWAY over on Facebook soon so follow along for a chance to win a copy!
