WHAT IS BUCKEYE CANDY?
Buckeye candy is a mixture of peanut butter, confectioners’ sugar, butter, and graham cracker crumbs. It’s mixture together, formed into a ball, then partially dipped in chocolate. They get the name because they look like buck eyes.
Instead of the truffles, I didn’t form my fudge candy into balls. Instead, I smoothed it out in a pan and topped it with chocolate. This cut down the prep time significantly with the same sweet flavor result.
The base of my fudge is a mixture of peanut butter and graham cracker crumbs. There’s no cooking so it comes together quickly and easily. The chocolate frosting is melted chocolate chips. It’s just that simple.
