These buckeye cookies have a rich, chocolate base with a sweet peanut butter center and a chocolate drizzle on top. It’s the perfect sweet and chewy cookie.
I love peanut butter and chocolate together. It’s kind of my thing. I could make thousands of recipes using it and probably will eventually. Just give me a little time. Though, I do have a pretty good head start on it already. I think one of my favorites is my chocolate peanut butter layer dessert.
So this is just one of the recipes that you’ll find in my Easy Homemade Cookie Cookbook. There are 160 delicious cookie recipes in it. This is one of the several chocolate peanut butter recipes that I’ve been able to sneak in the book. You’re welcome, friends!
1. When making these cookies, it’s important to make the peanut butter balls as big as the thumbprint hole you’ve created. The chocolate cookie isn’t going to puff up or cover any of the edges that aren’t covered by the peanut butter balls.
2. When I say flatten the cookie balls out, I don’t mean flat like a pancake. I mean so it’s still very thick but the top and bottoms of the dough ball are flat.
3. If the dough cracks when you put a thumbprint hole in it, you can press the dough between your two palms and work it until it’s more pliable. Then roll it in a ball again and press your finger in to form the thumbprint. This should reduce most of the cracking.
