I have lived in Ohio my whole life and this is my first time ever making Buckeyes. Some people call them peanut butter calls. There are more names. 


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 5 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil

  1. In a mixer, blend peanut butter, butter and vanilla.
  2. Add powdered sugar and mix on low until combined. Scrape down bowl and mix again.
  3. Pinch off tablespoon sized pieces and roll into balls.
  4. Transfer balls to a baking sheet and chill for 30 minutes
  5. Add chocolate and coconut oil to a medium bowl and melt on 50% power in the microwave. Stir to combine and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  6. Using toothpick dip the peanut butter balls into the chocolate. Leave a bit of the peanut butter exposed for that signature buckeye look.
  7. Chill to allow the chocolate to firm up.
  8. Serve
  9. Enjoy!!

  1. I love peanut butter balls and never knew that's what a buckeye was! My cousins are from Ohio and they laughed because I told them I'd always thought a buckeye was an animal, like maybe a deer!
