My Cookie Dough Truffles are always a big hit. Don’t tell anyone how easy they are to make.

My sister, Melinda, always makes Buckeyes. In the south, we call these Peanut Butter Balls. Whatever you call them, they’re delish!

If you can’t find something to make from this group there is a problem. We always make the buckeyes it is a family favorite.

Sarah Bailey December 5, 2016 - 10:18 am

Oh my goodness what a round up of delicious looking and sounding items, I think I definitely need to try the cookie dough truffles YUM!

Shirley Wood December 5, 2016 - 11:38 am

I’d like to receive a sample pack with two of each please and a half dozen of certain ones. Yes, we simply must have pretty round shaped candy, cookies and cake balls during the Christmas season. My hubby makes Pecan Sandies Snowball Cookies to take to work every year and they just vanish. We all love round goodies!

I love making sweets and candy during the holidays. I always make buckeyes, but I dip the whole thing and just call them peanut butter balls. It’s a much less fancy looking dessert, but it tastes just as good.

Zan December 5, 2016 - 9:02 pm

Well now you have me wanting some!! I love truffles and have not made any this season. I thought of doing some recently but did not! I love how festive yours look and some of them that I clicked. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

Jenn December 5, 2016 - 9:23 pm

We love to make buckeyes every year. They are a favorite of my husband, and my older daughter. They disappear real quick.

Amanda December 5, 2016 - 11:13 pm

My favorite cookie should be on this list…a crispy rice chocolate covered peanut butter ball. It is so bad for you with way too many calories but it is oh so delicious!

Franc Ramon December 6, 2016 - 1:08 am

They looks so cool to eat. They also look so tasty and delicious so I’ll probably eat them anyway.

Chubskulit Rose December 6, 2016 - 7:44 am

Jeanine December 6, 2016 - 10:03 am

These all look amazing! I would love to try out those buckeyes. I’ve never had them before but hear all about them all the time. They look and sound just yummy!
