Double Chocolate Buckeye Cookies for the Food Blogger Love Cookie Exchange

Growing up one of my favorite treats were Buckeye candies- decadent chocolate balls with a creamy peanut butter center. These delicious cookies are inspired by the Buckeyes I know and love. They have a brownie like texture and if you love peanut butter and chocolate as much as I do, I bet you can't eat just one! 
I joined the  Food Blogger Love Cookie Exchange this year to spread a little love this holiday season by exchanging cookies with fellow food bloggers! You are secretly matched with 3 bloggers and you send each a dozen cookies. Then you receive a dozen cookies from 3 different bloggers too. I received Cherry Nut Nuggets from That Recipe, Gingerbread Biscotti from Turnips to Tangerines, and Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops from Sarah Cooks the Books. They were all delicious and perfect for holiday snacking! Ashton even took a plate full to work and they were gone in minutes!
