I found this today while looking for a popcorn ball recipe.  I am a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies and buckeyes, and this looks like a cross between the two, so it's defninitely going in my "to try" list.  :-)

The recipe and pics come from:

First, in a large bowl, cream together:
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 granulated sugar
Now, add:
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup milk (I used skim)
In a separate bowl, stir together: 
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Add the dry mixture in several batches to the wet mixture and mix well. 

Finally, use a wooden spoon or spatula to stir in:

  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Chill the dough for an hour.  Roll the chilled dough into 1 inch balls and place them in the freezer for 30 minutes.  Melt chocolate melts or almond bark in the microwave or a double boiler.  Dip each ball in the melted chocolate, gently tap off excess and place on wax paper.  Sprinkle with a few mini chocolate chips if desired.  This recipe made around 50 bites!
