Dark Chocolate & Toffee Bit Buckeyes : GO BUCKS!

IMG_0336

I am over the moon about The Ohio State Buckeye’s National Championship Title. Being born & raised in Columbus, Buckeye football & Buckeye candies have always been a staple. Here’s my twist on the classic Buckeye, using dark chocolate & also toffee bits. It’s an absolutely delicious alternative to this yummy treat

What You Need:

  • 1 (18 ounce) jar of creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 lb confectioners sugar (gluten free-generally is)
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag dark chocolate chips
  • 1 bag Heath Bar bits ‘o brickle toffee
  • Wax Paper
  • Tooth Picks

Directions

1. Mix peanut butter, butter & confectioners sugar in large bowl and stir until smooth (not creamy just smooth)

2. Form this peanut butter mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls and place them onto baking sheets lined with wax paper

3. Melt dark chocolate chips in separate bowl until smooth

4. Dip each ball into melted chocolate by sticking toothpick in center and rolling around in bowl. Leave a coin sized portion exposed for classic look. For all over chocolate ball, place ball into the bowl without a toothpick and roll around with a spoon, then using the spoon to take it out and place back onto wax paper (If you don’t want the toothpick hole to show use finger to smooth over)

5. Sprinkle toffe bits onto fully covered buckeyes. You can also make fun patterns on the exposed buckeyes with excess chocolate for an added touch!

6. Refrigerate for approximately 30 min until they’ve firmed up & enjoy! (I continue to store them in refrigerator if not eaten immediately)
