Buckeye Candy Recipe

Let me introduce you to the peanut butter chocolate candy of your dreams aka Buckeyes. They are simple to make and only require just a handful of ingredients.

Let’s get started!


In a large bowl mix together the peanut butter, powdered sugar, melted butter, and vanilla.


Roll the peanut butter mixture into 1 inch balls using your hands. Place the prepared balls on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.


Melt your melting chocolate according to package directions. Set the ball of peanut butter dough on a fork and lower it into the warm melted chocolate


Take care to not dip it fully, you should have a spot on the top that is about the size of a dime showing off the peanut butter.


Remove from the chocolate and gently tap the fork on the edge of your bowl to remove extra chocolate and then place the buckeye on a piece of parchment or waxed paper to set.


Repeat with remaining peanut butter balls and allow the chocolate to set before serving. Stove leftovers at room temperature.
