I have lived in many cities in several states, but mostly grew up in Ohio, the Buckeye State, where this candy is very popular. You are supposed to make it leaving a bit of peanut butter showing on top so it looks like a real buckeye, but I just covered them completely this time. These are better than Reese's Cups to me!

1 1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened
1 t. vanilla
4 c. powdered sugar
2 c. milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate candy melts

Mix peanut butter, butter and vanilla until smooth. Add powdered sugar a little at a time, stirring to blend. When well blended, chill for at least 1 hour. Roll into balls and dip into melted chocolate. Let dry on wax paper (if you can wait that long!).


  1. Mmm! Thank you for this recipe. I am a BIG peanut butter lover and I am looking forward to trying it out!

  2. Definitely look much better than Reeses!

  3. I love these! We lived in Columbus, and these are a family favorite!
