Chocolate Covered Buckeye Bites Recipe

For us the holiday season is synonymous with baking season.  We keep busy creating cookies and treats for neighbors, teachers, cookie exchanges, and for company all season long.  There are so many wonderful people in our lives and so many people that I want to know that we appreciate them!  I think cooking up a little homemade gift is the perfect way to say thanks!  Plus,  it’s a great way to stretch the budget to be able to include everyone!  (And as an added bonus, we can make one giant batch of Chocolate Covered Buckeye Bites and it will make lots of great gifts to hand out!  Saving time and money during the holidays?  A win!)

Today I’m going to share with you one of our absolute favorite treats ever.

You want to be sure to get the Philadelphia Cream Cheese and the Baker’s Premium White Chocolate!  I have tried this with other kinds of chocolate and this is the brand that works the best.  SUPER important!  Kraft makes the best baking products!

Instructions
  1. Use a food processor to finely crush the chocolate sandwich cookies. If you do not have a food processor, place them in a plastic baggie and crunch them up. (I've used a rolling pin before and it worked fine!)

  2. Next, transfer your cookie crumbs to a bowl. Add one package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese.
  3. Mix the two together well.

  4. Then, take a little bit in the palm of your hand and form a small dish shape. Add a small bit of peanut butter to the middle. Form the edges up around the peanut butter and roll into a ball.

  5. Place the Buckeye Bites on a cookie sheet. (We put ours in mini cupcake liners.) Put the cookie sheet in the freezer for 20 minutes to help set the bites.

  6. Remove the Buckeye Bites from the freezer and set aside. Melt the Baker's Chocolate according to the box directions. Dip the Buckeye Bites into the melted chocolate and place back on the cookie sheet. If desired, grind up a few extra chocolate cookies and sprinkle the top with cookie crumbs. Then, place in the freezer to set for just a few minutes. You will want to store in the refrigerator.
