^^^Because this was a “gift”, I couldn’t slice it and take better pictures…you’ll just have to trust me on this one 😉

I know- that title makes no sense! These treats are called Buckeyes because they apparently look like something from the buckeye tree. But I am suggesting you make them in bar form, which is nothing like the buckeye tree, or so I assume. What is a buckeye tree anyway? And what does that have to do with chocolate and peanut butter?

Whichever way you decide to make it, it is delicious and super easy and fast! If you hurry you could be eating this delicious treat in about 15 minutes. If you stop reading my ramblings about buckeye trees that is.
