These candies got their name from their resemblance to the nut of the buckeye tree. A delicious combination of peanut butter and dark chocolate. A special treat at Christmas time or anytime. Especially if you are an Ohio State Buckeye fan!
1/2 stick (4 Tbsp) butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup crunchy or creamy peanut butter (I like the added texture of crunchy)
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups (12 oz bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips
This recipe makes approximately 45 buckeyes and can be completed in about an hour.
