My wife entered a cookie contest last week. These bad boys won first place in the chocolate cookie recipe category, as best chocolate cookie recipe. So when I tell you these peanut butter buckeye bars are more than good, I have a panel of judges to back me up. They are sweet, succulent and definitely something we’ll be making all year long, but they are perfect for a Holiday buffet, so don’t pass this recipe up when you are planning your Thanksgiving or Christmas cookie baking!
This is a simple recipe, an even though I usually shy away from anything that uses a mix, in this case I’ll gladly make an exception. They make in a snap, don’t cost much and are suited for the novice baker (read: me). The results are fabulous, the oooh-and ahhhh factor is pretty high on the list. Just place a pretty pyramid of these on a shiny platter and back out of the way. But I suggest you make two batches if you want any for yourself!
I could talk forever about these, but I think I’ll just let the recipe speak for itself. It’s that good! Sinfully sweet, and chewy, with a full chocolate and peanut butter overload factor. Peanut Butter Buckeye Bars aren't just the star of the show, they're rock stars in their own right. They're also just about the simplest thing you'll ever make.

What I would have done differently
We need practice making these buckeye bars a bit prettier, but aside from the looks, they’re pretty amazing. Next time I may add some spicy salt-roasted peanuts to the mix, just for a tiny bit of kick.
