Do you believe in love at first site? After tasting buckeyes, I do.

Buckeyes are one of those treats that I have been eyeing up for far too long. I found myself lost in long debates (with myself) over whether or not to make these dangerous little treats.

You see, the simple combination of peanut butter and chocolate – who could resist? Rhetorical question. If you have a peanut allergy, you probably already broke into hives and fled this post. For the rest of us though, bite size balls (giggle) of pure deliciousness await.

I wanted to make these because they are so darned easy – and because I’m so immature that I giggle every time I say the name. I didn’t want to make these unless I knew I had someone to hand each and every one off to the moment they were done. But once Captain America hit the movie theaters, I couldn’t resist. After all, Bucky is his best friend – my inner nerd did cartwheels.

“Bucky” balls made. Patsy found. Pounds far far away from me. It’s all good and now we can proceed with the buckeyes recipe. 😉

I just found you from Eat Yourself Skinny and I love it. Except... I am a little jealous. I tried making these over the holidays last year and even though they tasted amazing, they looked AWEFUL! They were too big and the dipped chocolate just looked weird. Yours look so tasty, i love it!!! Your news follower- Laura @ A Healthy Jalapeño

Welcome to PtS! Want to know why they aren't all dipped in chocolate? For the same reason you said - they looked horrible! I couldn't get the hang of it at all! I finally gave up and just decided to drizzle the chocolate over top! I hope you come back for seconds.

I've never had official buckeyes before, but I think that mostly means I haven't added graham cracker crumbs to my peanut butter balls. I do love peanut butter and chocolate though, and I love the addition of cream cheese in this recipe! The buckeyes are gorgeous, and look ridiculously tasty!
