Buckeye Brownie Cookies

29 Mar

buckeye cookiesThis is a cool blend of  brownies and my family’s favorite buckeye candy. What a winning combo!!


1 box (18-19 oz. size) Brownie mix

1/2 C. Cream cheese, room temperature

3/4 C. Peanut Butter

3/4 C. Powdered sugar

3/4 C. Chocolate frosting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine brownie mix, butter egg and cream cheese. Stir until dough forms, it will be very thick and sticky. You may have to use your hands.

Form rounded tablespoon size balls of dough, placing them on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Make an indention with your thumb in each center. In another bowl, stir peanut butter and powdered sugar. Form into teaspoon size balls and press into indentions in the brownie cookies. Press the peanut butter down slightly as it will not spread and you don’t want your cookies too tall.

Bake 10 – 12 minutes until edges are just set. Cool on wire rack. When cooled, frost each cookie with a tablespoon of chocolate frosting. You may make your own frosting or use store bought. I have used both and actually prefer the Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge frosting best.
