So yesterday, I finally got around to sharing my Peanut Butter Buckeyes recipe. Having lived in Ohio now for over 7 years, these people LOVE their Buckeyes. Both the candy and the college!

Haven’t had a buckeye candy yet? They are soft peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. Pure, simple, delightful treats!

When the Ohio Poultry Association asked me to make a cookie based on my state of course Buckeye’s came to mind. And of course, buckeyes are a candy not a cookie. And of course, as you may know if you read this blog for any length of time, I don’t do “regular.”

Which means, you’re not going to get a chocolate cookie with peanut butter morsels. (although I do have a chocolate cookie bar with peanut butter morsels recipe on the blog HERE). Nope. Not today.

Instead how about a chewy WHITE CHOCOLATE cookie cup with a peanut butter cup inside. It’s like a buckeye….but totally NOT a buckeye. However, one bite into these cookie cups and you will see why it SHOULD be the state cookie. Soft, chewy cookie with a peanut butter center!

The extra eggs in this recipe help give my cookies some CHEW. I love chewy cookies. Nothing cakey. Nothing dry. Just perfect, chewy cookies.

Speaking of eggs, did you know more eggs are consumed during the winter holiday season than at Easter? All those cookies, brownies and cakes we create are all made with EGGS. And of course, the eggnog.

Did you also know that OHIO is the second largest egg producing state in the nation? Ohio egg farmers produce over 7.6 billion eggs each year. Crazy right?!?

This season, grab your carton of eggs and get baking! And don’t forget the sprinkles. Cause we all know sprinkles make everything more festive! These would be so pretty on your holiday cookie trays (and probably one of the first to go!) ENJOY!

I haven’t used the white chocolate Reeses yet! But, I could sit in a pile of these cookies and eat them forever. On that note…it might not be wise to make them. Just kidding…I need this in my life, in my face and in my stomach. Peanut butter cups + cookies = yes! These look delish Aimee!

I’ve been a little obsessed with cookie cups lately and you just kicked up them a notch by putting pb cups in the center!
