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!

Disclaimer: This recipe contains Peanuts.

Step 1: Ingredients for recipe

To make this recipe you will need:

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.
These sound tasty, and look ideal for halloween food. Just make sure you don't eat the real thing, as they are poisonous. <br>These are called conkers over here in the uk. They are pierced and a string passed through, secured with a knot. A game is played by two people who take it in turns to hit their opponents conker with the aim of shattering it. <br>
Yummers! My husband and I love these :D
Ohhhhhh I love these. They're the best. Eating too many will always put me into a food coma though. :D
