The Freshman Cook: Club Baked~Buckeyes!

It’s another edition of Club Baked!! This time around we made buckeyes! Buckeyes are peanut butter candies, dipped in chocolate to look like a nut called a buckeye. Being born and raised in Ohio, the Buckeye State,  I  can”t remember a holiday season without buckeyes.  And, even though we moved away quite awhile ago, we always have buckeyes during the holiday. It’s a tradition! So, I was very excited about making these.  The recipe from Baked Explorations, by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito is slightly different from the one I have always used, but I followed their recipe, (except I used milk chocolate instead of dark) curious to see how they differ in taste from mine. I was not disappointed. They were delicious!

 This recipe was easy. There was what I would call 

an “unusual ingredient” in the recipe.

Can you guess what it is?

The scooping and…..

rolling took some time. But it was so worth it!

 Callebaut Milk Chocolate finished off the buckeyes. 

Oh, so good!
