Who needs mini bundt cake when you could have buckeye bundt cookies? Stuffed with chocolate and peanut butter chips and topped with creamy peanut butter and chocolate ganache.

Today is the Buckeyes third to last home game even though they have 5 more games after today – this is what happens when you have 5 home games in a row to start the season.

On the plus side, we had great weather earlier in the season to watch said games in person. Even today the weather is cooperating with highs reaching the mid-70s despite half the trees being naked already.

Today we play the Iowa Hawkeyes. It shouldn’t be a tough game, but they have been a surprise for us in the past so it’s not impossible to think it could happen again. Hopefully not since like I said it’s a home game this time.

If you’re wondering who the final home game are, it’s Indiana and then TTUN who shall not be named. But first we have to get through Penn State away next week. But let’s try to focus on today haha.

Buckeye Bundt Cookies.

Today for #PBchocSat I made these mini buckeye bundt cookies. The mini part attributed to the bundt cakes, not the cookies. The cookies themselves are decent sized but they are baked inside of a mini bundt cake pan.

After they are done baking, the indent gets a dollop of pure creamy peanut butter and then topped with ganache. I thought about leaving the peanut butter exposed because it looks like a buckeye that way, but who can say no to ganache on top?
