Today I have a recipe for a classic candy that’s best known in Ohio – Peanut Butter Buckeyes. It’s called a buckeye because it resembles the nut from the state tree, the buckeye tree. This candy has a sweet peanut butter filling and a hard chocolate coating. The key trait is the peanut butter peeking through on the top. I like to jazz mine up a bit with crushed peanuts or chocolate sprinkles, but they are also delicious plain. If you are a fan of chocolate and peanut butter, this recipe is for you!
Week of Cookies continues with a festive and simple cookie. Today I’d like to share with you my recipe for for Mint Chocolate Shortbread Cookies. These cookies have a rich chocolate taste with a hint of mint. They’re dipped in dark chocolate and adorned with a few Christmas sprinkles. My husband and I both agreed that these cookies were practically a thin mint twin. Hopefully the girl scouts don’t come after me!
Today I want to share a recipe for Caramel and Pecan Chocolate Turtle Cookies. These cookies combine all of the flavors of the classic turtle candy: chocolate, caramel, and pecans. The caramel bits used inside the cookie are soft and sweet. They are the perfect accompaniment to the crunchy pecans coating the outside of this cookie.
Today I have another easy chocolate bark recipe to share with you. I am loving these simple, 3 to 4 ingredient candy recipes lately. This Dark Chocolate Walnut Apricot Bark reminds me of trail mix in bark form. It’s rich with a little crunchy and chewy texture. Plus, it’s low on sugar if you’re looking for a treat that won’t give you a sugar rush.
Are you searching for a simple brownie recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth? You can stop looking, I’ve got what you need right here. These Milk Chocolate Frosted Brownies are decadent, sweet, and oh so chocolate-y. I’ve got to say, I may have had a slight (major) sugar rush after eating one of these, but it was worth it. From the dense, fudge-like brownies to the soft, whipped chocolate buttercream, this dessert is all you need if you’re a chocolate lover.
