Cookie Dough Buckeyes
I am CRAZY stupid in obsessed with these. I’ve never even made traditional buckeyes, but I can’t say that I’m ever going to get around to it. One bite of these chocolate chip cookie dough buckeyes has convinced me that this is the only buckeyes recipe I’m ever going to need.
So. Just in case you are unfamiliar with Buckeyes… the traditional kind is made up of peanut butter ball covered in chocolate. Annnnnnnd….. it has something to do with Ohio. That’s about the extent of my knowledge on the little boogers. Sounds yum, right?
I’ve totally been meaning to make them. Especially around Christmas– I always think I’ll get to it at Christmas time. But now… I’m just not sure I’ll ever be able to deviate from this recipe. It’s literally chocolate chip cookie cookie dough (without the eggs of course)– my favorite– covered in chocolate.
I just feel like if I’m going to be dipping anything in chocolate, from now on, it’s just going to have to be cookie dough!
Color me addicted. Forevah.
These are definitely going on the Christmas plate this year! And probably on a few other plates in between ;)
Products I used in the making…
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
- 16 ounces candiquik (or other chocolate melting candy)
- Cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Add remaining ingredients (except the candiquik) and mix until smooth (since there are no eggs and no baking soda, there is no need to add ingredients sequentially. yay!).
- Use a cookie scoop to portion out cookie dough balls onto a baking sheet (roll balls in your palm to smooth). Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 10 minutes.
- Melt candiquik according to manufacturer's instructions.
- Use a toothpick to dip each cookie dough ball into the chocolate, allowing excess chocolate to drip back into the melting tray. Place the chocolate covered dough on a sheet of wax/parchment/silicone mat to cool and harden. Smooth over the toothpick hole with your finger.
- Best if kept chilled until serving, but not absolutely necessary.
