These cookies are a delicious marriage of two delicious treats: brownies and buckeyes. Enjoy the flavor of buckeyes without the hassle of dipping them in chocolate with this simple cookie recipe!

Does anyone here have a soft spot for buckeyes, brownies, and cookies? I’m sure I do. One of my favorite sweets is brownies because of their rich chocolate taste and dense texture.

To be honest, I have quite a few favorites. On the other hand, I find brownies to be quite delicious. In that case, turning it into a giant, decadent, ooey-gooey cookie with peanut butter surprises within is just too much for me to handle. Cookies with the flavor of buckeyes and brownies. I could not ask for more!
