OHIO Buckeyes Chocolate and Peanut Butter Candy Recipe

Maybe you are an Ohio State fan or just like peanut butter & chocolate, here is a recipe for you!

Before we start, what exactly is a buckeye anyways?? A buckeye is a tree, the state tree of Ohio. It became a name used to identify the pioneers on the Ohio frontier. Of course it later became the name for any Ohio State University sports team. Here is what a buckeye tree looks like!

Here is what the fruit of the tree looks like:

Now onto the candy, you will see that the candy resembles the fruit of the Buckeye Tree. The fruit is poisonous to humans but often eaten by squirrels. So… be sure NOT to eat the real fruit of a buckeye tree!

WHAT YOU NEED

1 cup (9 ounces) creamy peanut butter1/4 cup butter at room temperature1 teaspoon vanilla1 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar1/2 cup all purpose flour1 cup (8 ounces) chocolate chips, melted**HERE’S WHAT YOU DOLine 2 cookie sheets with waxed paper. Beat peanut butter, butter & vanilla in a medium sized bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioner’s sugar and flour until well blended. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls into 1″ balls. Arrange on prepared cookie sheets and refrigerate for one hour or until firm. Spear one ball at a time with a wooden toothpick and dip into melted chocolate to cover about two thirds of ball.Arrange chocolate side down on prepared cookie sheets. Smooth over the toothpick hole so that they are not visible. refrigerate about 15 minutes or until chocolate is set. Store tightly covered in refrigerator for up to 2 months. Makes about 60 pieces. ** I have substituted candy chocolate melting wafers for the chocolate chips before. Wilton makes some or you can buy them at your local craft store.

Place into a vintage or new candy tin or on a pretty plate & you have a fantastic gift. Everyone likes these! Even if they are not an Ohio State fan!

HAVE FUN & ENJOY
