Buckeyes are among the easiest candies out there. They call for only a handful of ingredients, require no oven, stovetop, or candy thermometer, and request a modest 15 minutes of chilling before you can coat the creamy peanut butter centers in chocolate.

Easily made low carb with only a few ingredient swaps, you’ll surely put these in your recipe rotation!

Buckeyes are like peanut butter balls that didn’t get all the way dipped in chocolate. They’re no bake, SUPER-EASY to make and as an added bonus you can make these peanut butter candies in advance and pull them out of the fridge at a moment’s notice.

Peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven so who could resist a buckeye ball or two?? Buckeyes taste like peanut butter cups with an emphasis on the peanut butter! Not too sweet, really creamy, and so satisfying.

This no bake peanut butter treat closely resembles buckeye nuts! The buckeye is the state tree of Ohio and as you can imagine this dessert is pretty popular in Ohio and the neighboring states?
