You’ll never think that these fudgy-chocolate brownies are made using a boxed brownie mix.

Ingredients

1 large egg
1 box fudge brownie mix (19.5 oz. or family size)
4 oz. cream cheese softened
1/4 c. butter melted
1 c. powdered sugar
4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c. creamy peanut butter

How to make Buckeye Brownie Cookies

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Mix the brownie mix, butter, cream cheese, and egg in a medium bowl until well blended. Onto an ungreased cookie sheet, scoop the dough to make about 24 cookies, smoothing the edges to create round cookies.

Step 3: Combine the powdered sugar and peanut butter in another bowl until well mixed. Into about 1-inch balls, shape the mixture, making sure you have one ball for each cookie. Set aside.

Step 4: Place in the preheated oven and bake the cookie dough for about 12 minutes. Make sure not to overcook or undercook the cookies.

Step 5: Lightly press a peanut butter ball into the middle of each cookie as soon as they come out of the oven. Allow the cookies to cool for about 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool fully.

Step 6: In a microwavable bowl, melt 4 ounces of chocolate for about 30 seconds. Stir and melt for another 15 seconds or until the chocolate is completely melted.

Step 7: On top of each cookie, spoon about half tbsp of the melted chocolate, covering the peanut butter ball. Allow the chocolate to set.

Step 8: In an airtight container, store the buckeye brownie cookies.
