In this classic confection from the Buckeye State, creamy peanut butter and chocolate combine to create an adorable replica of an Ohio tree nut.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place first 4 ingredients (through salt) in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until creamy. Add peanut butter and graham cracker crumbs; beat until blended.

Step 2

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Shape peanut butter mixture by tablespoonfuls into 38 balls. Place balls on baking sheet; refrigerate 1 hour.

Step 3

Place chocolate in the top of a double boiler; place over simmering water, stirring until almost melted. Remove from heat; stir until smooth. Let cool slightly.

Step 4

Place each ball on a fork, and dip ball in chocolate until partially coated; return to parchment paper to harden.
