  • SNEAKY SUBSTITUTION Traditional buckeye recipes call for up to 6 tablespoons butter, but we found that protein-packed chickpeas lend the same creamy texture and shave 42g sat fat. Better yet: Your family will never know these tasty treats are bean-based and a great way to slip in extra fiber.

  • Dip the prongs of a fork into melted white chocolate, and drizzle over buckeyes, making crisscross motions to resemble a mummy wrap.
