This is the traditional, not-so-healthy, Ohio recipe for buckeyes. If you're not familiar with them, they are a confection consisting of a sweet peanut butter center dipped in chocolate. Buckeyes are made to look like the inedible nut of our state tree, a member or the horse chestnut family. They're also the mascot of our local college team, The Ohio State University Buckeyes.
These are served at Ohio State football game tailgates and holiday parties everywhere - and there are never any leftovers!
The chilling, dipping and re-chilling takes a while, so plan on doing this over two days. There's nothing that says you can't sample the filling, though! This recipe makes about 48 buckeyes.
