Cookie dough buckeyes bring me SO much joy, it’s practically unexplainable. But I’m going to try to explain it.
When I was a kid, I certainly had my fair share of favorite treats. Puppy chow, Little Debbie snacks, cookie dough, you name it. But of course, the ones I loved the most deeply were the ones I “shouldn’t have”, aka the salmonella-risky ones. Obviously, though, I threw caution to the wind and ate the cookie dough anyways. I mean, the risk was worth the reward every single time, clearly. Tollhouse cookie dough? Oh yeah, I’d risk being sick a day or two for a few big bites of the heavenly snack.
On another note… buckeyes were also top tier (and still are!). They were just unmatchable! I like to think that buckeyes are the reason my love for the peanut butter chocolate combo runs so deep, but who knows… maybe it’s genetic, ha! Anyways, being fromOhio it was almost a sin not to like buckeyes. And although I did not go to Ohio State for college, the love for buckeyes… in food form…. runs DEEP.
The message here? I have some deep rooted love for snacks and treats from my childhood, so I packaged that love into one super “childhood reminiscent” treat – cookie dough buckeyes! They are buckeye filling, covered in edible homemade chocolate chip cookie dough, all costed in a chocolate shell. Heavenly, might I say?! Catch some recipe tips below, followed by the full recipe!
How do I heat treat my flour so that it’s safe to eat?
Spread your flour onto a baking sheet and bake it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 7 minutes. This will make it safe to eat! Please note, you cannot eat raw flour, so pre-baking, or heat-treating your flour is essential!
Do I need to use mini chocolate chips?
Nope! You can use regular chocolate chips if that’s what you have on hand. I recommend mini since buckeyes are mini, but whatever floats your boat!
How long are these good for?
These are good for about 5 days, stored in the refrigerator.
How should I store these?
Store your cookie dough buckeyes in the fridge!
