They're peanut butter and powdered sugar (I think) balls covered in chocolate.  Probably the same thing you're talking about.  They're like a homemade reese's cup but in spherical form.

i've also seen these cookies that are basically store bought chocolate wafer cookies, with half dipped in white chocolate and then rolled into really finely crushed-up peppermint candy cane bits. i haven't tried them, but they look SOOOO good (and pretty too!)

It's exactly what I was thinking of.. I just hadn't heard them called cookies.  I love making buckeyes, I usually eat a bunch of the peanut butter balls before they get dipped. 

I have enjoyed making peppermint bark for the holidays, and I just saw some Oreo bark in a catalog so I am going to have to make that this Christmas.  My mother in law gave me a recipe for Swedish nuts - you toast pecans and then coat them in a meringue and bake - it's time intensive but quite delish... i can post the recipe if anyone wants it.

My mom has the most fabulous recipe for caramel corn using Mike Sell's puffcorn (hulll-less popcorn - it looks a bit like styrofoam but is soo addicting with the caramel added).  Of course now Mike SEll's made their own version, but it's not as good.

I didn't even know they were buckeye anything until I moved out of my house and did some internet research on how to make them.  I always thought of them as cookies since my then-aunt would serve them on a huge platter along with other Christmas cookies.

Y'all do know that there's going to be a Christmas cookie swap over in the swap forums, starting Dec. 1, right?

Swedish Nuts

2 lbs. pecans
2 sticks margarine
salt
4 egg whites
2c sugar
pinch of salt

Using two large cookie sheets with low sides, place 1 lb of pecans in each sheet.  Salt generously and toast 8 - 10 minutes on 325 degrees.  Put all nuts in a large bow.  Whip egg whites and sugar until stiff peaks form.  Melt one stick of margarine(butter) in each cookie sheet, mix the nuts and the merinque mixture.  (now my mother in law drops each individual pecan onto the sheet) Spread the nuts onto the buttered cookie sheet and bake for 40 - 45 minutes.  Stir every 10 - 15 mintues.  let cool on cookie sheet and enjoy! 


Hullless Carmel Puffcorn

2 packages of Mike Sell's hull-less puffcorn
1 c margarine
2 c brown sugar
1/2 c white corn syrup

Cook margarine, brown sugar and syrup over low heat until it boils (use a large pot)  Boil for 5 minutes.  Pour puffcorn into two large pans (those cheapie foil roasting pans work great).  Pour caramel mixture over popcorn and mix until coated.  Bake at 250 degrees for one hour, stir every 15 minutes.  Spread onto cookie sheets to cool. 

ENJOY!!
