Buckeye Brownie Bites Recipe

Here are the ingredients that you need to compile to make these cookies:

Peanut Butter Ball Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar

Brownie Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Chocolate Drizzle Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup or honey
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk or cream


Here are the directions that you need to follow to complete this recipe:

  1. Make the peanut butter balls first. Beat together all of the peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar until smooth. You can use a stand mixer for this and it will make several minutes.  If it is too dry and crumbly, add more peanut butter. If it’s too sticky, add more powdered sugar. Continue until you have the consistency that you want. The next step is to  roll the peanut butter into 3/4 inch balls. Should make about 36. Set aside these peanut butter balls for now.
  2. To make the brownies bites, preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 3 mini muffins pans well. Whisk together the oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Beat in the cocoa, flour, salt and baking powder. Divide batter into muffin tins, filling them 2/3 full. Should make 36 brownie bites
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out with a few crumbs. Remove from the oven and immediately press a peanut butter ball into each bite. Let cool several minutes in the pan before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. To make the chocolate drizzle, add the melted butter, cocoa powder, corn syrup powdered sugar and milk or cream to a microwave safe bowl. Stir together and microwave for about 20 seconds. Stir again. Drizzle warm glaze over cooled brownie bites. Glaze will set when cooled.
