Many years ago, we lived in the small town of Westerville,Ohio. We stayed for 2 years before we moved back to Texas. It was a beautiful town, lots of fun and gave us the opportunity to travel all over up north. One of the things I miss are their "Buckeyes". These are round candies made from a peanut butter mix that is partially dipped in chocolate - they are named Buckeyes because they look just like the nut on a Buckeye tree. These candies are indigenous to Ohio but you can order them online or make them yourself .
1/2 c (1 stick) softened butter
2/3 c creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
2 c powdered sugar
1-4 tbsp milk
1 1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
Beat together butter and peanut butter until smooth. Add vanilla and salt then alternately add milk and powdered sugar, beating after each addition. If it's too thick, thin it out with a little milk. If it's too thin add more powdered sugar. I think thicker worked better for this recipe. Set them aside in the fridge to set up.
Now go melt your chocolate chips. I used microwave. Spread melted chocolate over peanut butter layer. Let them harden and set up in refrigerator before cutting to serve.
