Try This! - Holiday Cookies

It is time again for Try This, hosted by Girlymama. I love this carnival, and have found some great recipes.

This months theme, holiday cookies of course!

I am reposting one of my favorites, because the world is not complete unless EVERYONE has tried BUCKEYES. So good, so rich and so perfect in every way!!

Almost Instant Buckeyes

1 (10 oz.) pkg peanut butter chips
1 (16 oz) can Pillsburgy Creamy Supreme Vanilla Frosting
1 (12 oz) pkg light cocoa candy melts or coating wafers (or chocolate almond


1. Line cookie sheets with waxed paper. Melt peanut putter chips in medium saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in frosting. Let stand about 30 minutes or until cool enough to handle.

2. Roll mixture into 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper-lined cookie sheet.
Refrigerate 15 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, melt candy melts as directed on package.

4. To coat each ball with candy, pierce ball with toothpick; dip in melted candy leaving small are around toothpick uncoated. Place dipped ball on waxed paper-line cookie sheet, pushing the candy off the toothpick with the tines of a fork. (If desired, smooth toothpick mark with finger.)

If melted candy sets up while dipping, rewarm in microwave on LOW power. Let stand 5 minutes or until set. Putting in the fridge sets quicker.

Makes 6 dozen Buckeyes.

Man, now I want to make some. Must resist for another week!

Head on over to Girlymama for more Try This posts!

Oh! They are just up my peanut butter craving, pregnant alley! Definitely have to try those. Maybe I'll take some as a hostess gift to a Christmas party that we are going to on Saturday!
