Top Rated Buckeye Recipes

Buckeyes
I was introduced to the simple pleasure that is a buckeye by my Ohioan sister-in-law, who provided me with this recipe. They are a specialty of the state, a dessert named after a nut that looks like an eye. Though they definitely aren't healthy, they are gluten-free, and did I mention how delicious they are? Think of a homemade, super-rich peanut butter cup. Click here to see A Sweet Tooth's Dream: 8 Fantastic Dessert Recipes.

The classic recipes for buckeyes I’ve found on the web use up to twice the amount of powdered sugar (yes, 6 cups) and two full sticks of butter for the same amount of peanut butter. This variation is less aggressively sweet, with a little tang from cream cheese and warm flavors from the graham crumbs. The only thing I wished it had was salt — perhaps a quarter teaspoon? Maybe a half teaspoon of something light and flaky? I think that salt really brings out the flavor in a peanut butter candy (try just the peanut butter portion of a Reese’s peanut butter cup alone if you don’t believe me), especially against a chocolate coating.

Peanut butter and chocolate unite for this holiday treat that is a hit at home, in the neighborhood, and at the office. Be warned - once you make these you'll be expected to make them every year.

I've been having a craving for peanut butter and chocolate thought I'd try these. This was a recipe I found in BH&G magazine "Christmas Cookies (1998)" I like this recipe because of the vanilla and the fact it contains no rice crispies and no wax. 2 1/2 cups of chocolate chips is close to 16 ounces. After dipping the buckeyes I put the rest of the chocolate on a silpat and sprinkled some almonds on top, no point wasting good chocolate. I enjoyed them very much, so did my son.

So-called because of the candy's resemblance of the nut of a Buckeye tree, which was thought to look like a buck's eye (deer's eye). Buckeyes are poisonous nuts, so these peanut butter and chocolate treats are a better choice for eating! There are a lot of variations of buckeyes out there, and I have spent years refining our version to what it is now - so a big thanks to everyone who served as guinea pigs ;) We like it real simple - just sweetened peanut butter and chocolate. There are a couple other 'basic' recipes on here, but none of the proportions matched this one - a factor that I consider important for ease of rolling the peanut butter balls. If they are too soft/sticky, you can't roll them, and you don't want them too hard. So I find this proportion to work quite well for us. A friend asked for this recipe to use for her wedding favors - came out wonderfully! Recipe is also easily halved - I do that frequently, with excellent results.
