Looking for a sweet, delicious treat this holiday season? Consider putting Buckeyes on the menu.

Named after the fruit of the Ohio buckeye tree, this tasty nugget can be made using a variety of ingredients. Chocolate is a must-have, and you can also include sugar, peanut butter, and a wide variety of other fixins.

Buckeyes are best served frozen, as they can be placed on a dessert table and will stay hard for several hours. But if they thaw to room temperature be careful — they can be a mess!

Key Takeaways:

  • The confection was designed to look like the Buckeye tree’s nut that is dropped each year
  • The candy has a peanut butter filling that is covered partially by chocolate to give it that look
  • The filling is made of peanut butter but saltines are the base for the peanut butter ball.

“I adore the perfect balance of sweetness, creaminess, and flavor and LOVE the snap of the cold chocolate when biting into a Buckeye.”
