Buckeye Brownie Cookies
  • 1 box FUDGE BROWNIE MIX (19.5 ounce or family size)
  • ¼ cup BUTTER, melted
  • 4 oz. CREAM CHEESE, softened
  • 1 EGG
  • 4 oz. CHOCOLATE CHIPS, melted (you can also use candiquik or chocolate almond bark)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, beat the brownie mix, butter, cream cheese, and egg. The dough will be a little sticky. Scoop the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet, making about 24 cookies.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the powdered sugar and the peanut butter until it is completely combined. Form 1 inch balls from mixture. You shoud have one ball for each cookie. Set aside.
  3. Bake for the cookie dough for approx. 12 minutes. As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, press a peanut butter ball lightly into the center of each cookie. The peanut butter mixture will soften slightly. Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Melt your chocolate in a microwavable bowl for 45 seconds. Stir the chocolate and melt for additional 15 seconds or until the chocolate is completely melted. Spoon about ½ tablespoon of melted chocolate on top of each cookie so it covers the peanut butter ball. Let the chocolate set. ENJOY!
