Buckeyes
I was introduced to the simple pleasure that is a buckeye by my Ohioan sister-in-law, who provided me with this recipe. They are a specialty of the state, a dessert named after a nut that looks like an eye. Though they definitely aren't healthy, they are gluten-free, and did I mention how delicious they are? Think of a homemade, super-rich peanut butter cup. Click here to see A Sweet Tooth's Dream: 8 Fantastic Dessert Recipes.

What’s not to like about buckeyes—those small peanut butter balls surrounded by creamy milk chocolate? I’ll tell you: They’re labor intensive! So, one holiday season, when my to-do list outdistanced my time, I decided to create something quick and easy with the same terrific taste. These cookies take half as long to make as buckeyes, are less messy to eat, and deliver the same peanut buttery chocolate taste we all know and love. That first Christmas, no one even missed the buckeyes, and I had a few precious moments to myself to relax. P.S. I haven’t made traditional buckeyes since.Recipe excerpted from Sheila G’s Butter & Chocolate: 101 Creative Sweets and Treats Using Brownie Batter by Sheila G.
