My mom called the other day mentioning that she saw a girl wearing a shirt saying, "Once a Husker, always a Husker." She really wanted to get one for me since we have moved away from Nebraska, but the store had already sold out of them by the time she found it. Being a "true Husker girl" I have never made nor tried a Buckeye candy, but I decided to embrace my full B1G 10 spirit and give these a shot (j/k) :)
Named after an opposing mascot or not, these little candies crafted of peanut butter and chocolate are not something to pass up. Karen from Karen's Cookies Cakes & More is hosting this week's Club: Baked recipe, and as usual, I had a lot of fun making something that I otherwise wouldn't have chosen.
They were really simple to make. Mix together the peanut butter part. Melt the chocolate. Dip, set, and eat. As we were forewarned in the book, the peanut butter mixture was a little dry, but I was able to push it into a ball with my hands pretty easily. The hardest part about these for me proved to be waiting for the chocolate to set. I moved a few of them too soon, but it was nothing a quick set in the refrigerator couldn't fix. I could see these being a great recipe for when you need something quickly but still want it to be a hit. Just proves it is hard to go wrong with that classic peanut butter-chocolate combination.
Be sure to stop by the Club: Baked page to see the results for the other bloggers. I am thinking this will be a delicious week for everyone involved!
