Peanut Butter Buckeyes

On an unhealthy note, these are amazing.Chocolate covered peanut butter- one of the best combinations in the world! I always thought these yummy desserts were named after the male deer eyeball, apparently not. The real origin of the name comes from the nut of the Ohio Buckeye tree. ...more
