Buckeye Cookie Bars

Pat Duran


This is a great recipe and takes less time to make than the individual buckeyes. I can't remember where I got the recipe . but it was in one of those boxes way up there!.It has to be Eagle Brand recipe of Pillsbury- I'm guessing. The box is labeled 1992 so it isn't that old. But it really is good. My family enjoys these a lot.
