Buckeye Candy is the perfect combination of peanut butter and chocolate. Super easy, inexpensive and at the same time delicious and healthy. It’s one of our favorite recipes, and we hope that you are going to love it too.
Buckeye cookies weren’t part of my childhood growing up in Minnesota, but they’re certainly the rage here in Indiana around the holidays (perhaps because of the proximity to Ohio?). Essentially peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate, they’re little bites of heaven. Any other buckeye fans out there?
Each year for A Couple Cooks, we try to create a “healthier” version of some holiday favorites. Admittedly “healthy” is sometimes a dirty word when tacked onto dessert, but believe me, these buckeyes can stand up to the original. Instead of the traditional butter and sugar, we’ve substituted Medjool dates, those large, chewy and sweet dates that are used to make natural sweets like raw brownies.
