Old-Fashioned Buckeyes

A classic and simple old-fashioned peanut butter candy covered in a chocolate shell. It also includes Grandma's secret ingredient!

A great recipe to make with your kids or grandkids this holiday season as it involves lots of hand mixing, dunking and chocolate licking.


The secret buckeye ingredient? Rice Crispy cereal. It gives the buckeyes a little something extra for texture. You could easily leave this out if desired.

The old fashioned recipe called for paraffin wax, which I replaced with coconut oil. It does make me wonder...does anyone use paraffin anymore?

Peanut Butter is the star of the show here. You can use creamy or crunchy, whatever your heart desires.
