Recipe here:www.joyofbaking.com/candy/BuckeyeCandy.html Stephanie Jaworski of Joyofbaking.com demonstrates how to make Buckeye Candy.
Buckeye Candy, also known simply as Buckeyes, are similar to Peanut Butter Balls. Both are a round bonbon that have a smooth and creamy peanut butter filling encased in a coating of shiny dark chocolate. The difference between the two is that Buckeyes leave the top of each bonbon bare of chocolate, so the peanut butter filling can be seen. Buckeyes are so named because they look like the nut of the Buckeye tree, which just happens to be the State Tree of Ohio. So popular are Buckeyes in Ohio that they say an Ohio State versus Michigan football game wouldn’t be complete without this candy. A bit of trivia; the name “buckeye” comes from Native American folklore and is said to come from the fact that the Buckeye nut resembles the eye of a buck deer.
