For the Brownie Cookie Base:

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Peanut Butter Filling:

  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt


Step 1: Preheat the Oven

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Step 2: Prepare the Brownie Cookie Base

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the semisweet chocolate chips and unsalted butter. Microwave in 20-30 second intervals, stirring each time, until the chocolate and butter are fully melted and well combined. Set this mixture aside to cool slightly.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the eggs, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until the mixture becomes pale and slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Gently fold the melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture until well combined.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the chocolate mixture and stir until a thick brownie-like batter forms.

Step 3: Form the Brownie Cookies

  1. Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, drop spoonfuls of the brownie cookie batter onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  2. Flatten each cookie slightly with the back of a spoon or your fingers to create a small well in the center.

Step 4: Prepare the Peanut Butter Filling

  1. In a bowl, combine the creamy peanut butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Mix until you have a smooth and sweet peanut butter filling.

Step 5: Assemble the Buckeye Brownie Cookies

  1. Drop a small spoonful of the peanut butter filling into the well of each cookie. You can use your fingers or the back of a spoon to gently spread the filling.

Step 6: Bake the Cookies

  1. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for approximately 10-12 minutes or until they are set, with a slightly cracked surface.

Step 7: Cool and Enjoy

  1. Remove the buckeye brownie cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  2. Once cooled, these cookies are ready to enjoy. They are perfect for peanut butter and chocolate lovers alike!


Buckeye brownie cookies offer the perfect combination of chocolatey richness and creamy peanut butter sweetness. These cookies are a delightful treat for any occasion and are sure to satisfy your cravings for the classic chocolate and peanut butter duo.
