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.

What’s not to like about buckeyes—those small peanut butter balls surrounded by creamy milk chocolate? I’ll tell you: They’re labor intensive! So, one holiday season, when my to-do list outdistanced my time, I decided to create something quick and easy with the same terrific taste. These cookies take half as long to make as buckeyes, are less messy to eat, and deliver the same peanut buttery chocolate taste we all know and love. That first Christmas, no one even missed the buckeyes, and I had a few precious moments to myself to relax. P.S. I haven’t made traditional buckeyes since.Recipe excerpted from Sheila G’s Butter & Chocolate: 101 Creative Sweets and Treats Using Brownie Batter by Sheila G.

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.

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.

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.
