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.

These were easy to make and tasted like Reese Peanut Butter Cups. Very rich and can only eat a few at a time but very hard to stop. Will make again. Would be fun to take to a gathering to share as a dessert.

Made these for the first time. They were very easy to make and were delicious. They are very rich, so you can only eat a couple at a time. I will make them again and again. Thanks for this recipe.

Growing up in Ohio "buckeyes" were a staple just about everywhere. They served them everyday in our school cafeteria (which also ended up stuck on the ceiling on a regular basis). It brought back such good memories making (and eating) this treat. They didn't disappoint either. They were absolutely delish! I am so glad I made them. I can't make them again for a long time though because I ate just about the whole batch myself. I need a few weeks at the gym to work off 30 buckeyes...lol!!
