Cashew Buckeye Cookies
A twist on an old favorite, we used cashew butter instead of peanut butter, and
then dipped them in melted light cocoa Candy Melts candy. Leave a few on Santa’s
plate this Christmas Eve, and you’ll be on his permanent nice list.
1 1/4 cups (12 ounces) cashew butter
1 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Wilton Pure Vanilla Extract
3 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
1 1/4 cups (about 1/2 a 12 ounce package) Light Cocoa Candy Melts® Candy
Prepare cookie pan with parchment paper.
In large bowl, combine cashew butter, butter, salt and vanilla extract. Beat with electric
mixer on medium speed until combined.
Add confectioners’ sugar; beat until combined.
Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls; place on prepared cookie pan.
Freeze for about 2 hours.
In wide microwave-safe container, melt Candy Melts Candy according to package
Dip 3/4 of each frozen cookie into melted candy.
Return to cookie pan. Chill until set, about 5-10 minutes.
Yield: about 2 1/2 dozen cookies
