Buckeye Bars

It’s fall and if you live in Columbus it’s better known as Buckeye football season. This city lives for this time of year. Football season also brings an excuse to eat fantastic snacks. Our claim to dessert fame is the buckeye, a chocolate and peanut butter treat that resembles the nut. Just as tasty and way easier are Buckeye Bars. I’ve made these for years and they’re one of my most requested treats.
