Eleven pipers piping – ehh, don’t know if that is a gift I would love (my boyfriend should take note of this since he is still Christmas shopping for me… Babe- No pipers or drummers please.) Eleven chocolate/peanut butter Buckeyes though… Yes please!
Oh buckeyes, you are how this all started. If you have been reading our blog since the beginning, you would know that buckeyes were our first post. Buckeyes are those cookies that everyone always goes nutty about (no pun intended) and are asked for every time you offer to bring cookies. Don’t get me wrong- they are quiet delicious, similar to a peanut butter cup. I just have made them 12,000 times. Since I have made them so many times, I have got it down to an art. Once the dough is made, I sit down in a comfy chair and watch tv as I make the balls. Also, a tip- don’t made them to huge, the size of a quarter is perfect, a half dollar is too much!
So what are you doing still reading this blog? Go make some buckeyes! Your friends will thank you, and then request them over and over again…hahaha. Also another tip I never gave before… use your mixer if you have one, that way your can mix all the ingredients and only have to make the balls by hand instead of all that mixing. However, its also very possible without a mixer. I did many Christmas cookies without a mixer for years!
