Ohio State Buckeyes

Stephanie Vandenburg


Ohio is the Buckeye State, so it's not a surprise that you'll find these chocolate and peanut butter buckeyes available all over the state. I recently made these for my Husband's family in Canada, and they flipped for this Ohio classic.

How to Make Ohio State Buckeyes


  1. Mix the peanut butter, powdered sugar, butter and vanilla extract in a large bowl until a dough forms. It will be nice and dry.
  2. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place them on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Stick the balls into the freezer to chill for half an hour.
  3. Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Stir it until it is smooth.
  4. Stick a toothpick into the top of a peanut butter ball and dip it into the chocolate, being careful not to cover the whole thing. Buckeyes need a bald little head. Place the chocolate covered ball back onto the cookie sheet and smooth the peanut butter over the hole in the top to make it look seamless. Refrigerate until you serve.
