These holiday buckeyes are a beautiful, decadent treat to make for your next holiday party. The pairing of the peanut butter and chocolate are a magical combo that you cannot just have 1 of.
If there was one “cookie” that was a must in our holiday assortment for Santa it was most definitely the Buckeye.
It’s kind of like the homemade version of a Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup and in true made-from-scratch fashion, a thousand times better. Sharing this classic recipe for you and I’d just love to know if this is a must-make in your home for the holidays too?
This is the original recipe card from my Grandmother’s collection for “Ohio-State Buckeyes.” She actually lived in Michigan so I would imagine they are more commonly referred to as this up that way than they are down here in the South – anyone? My very favorite thing about the card is her note at the bottom “Not especially good – too sweet” which had us laughing and laughing in the studio since we all love them so. But in true Grandma fashion, she told it like it was and wasn’t a fan of things that were super sweet so this one made me have quite a smile.
Hope you enjoy this classic!
