Club: Baked - Buckeyes

This round of Club: Baked was selected by Karen over at Karen's Cookies Cakes and More, and she selected Buckeyes.  Buckeyes are a peanut butter ball, that when dipped in chocolate, is said to resemble a horse chestnut (a Buckeye tree).

I had to admit that my Buckeyes are not true Buckeyes.  You see, the hubby is just not a lover of peanut butter and chocolate together (yeah, he's one of those people).  He loves peanut butter, and he loves chocolate, but together, he's just not a fan.  I actually considered not making these for a minute, since I didn't want to end up eating all of these myself....and then I remembered.....

I had a jar of Biscoff spread in the pantry!!  You know what Biscoffs taste like right?  Kind of a combination of gingersnaps and a cinnamon graham cracker......super delicious!  It pretty much has the same consistency as peanut butter....why not give it a try?

You know what?  They're pretty darn yummy!  You definitely get that delicious Biscoff taste coming through....and it tastes delicious with the chocolate coating.

I think the trickiest part of these is dipping them in the chocolate and leaving a part of the inside exposed.  I'm so used to making cakeballs and truffles, that I wouldn't even be thinking and start coating the whole thing.  Oops!

Give these a try for a holiday party....the recipe will make a ton of them!  I did a 1/2 recipe, and still ended up with about 30 of them!

Go to Club: Baked to check out the other baker's results.....and check out Karen's Cookies Cakes and More for the recipe......and Enjoy!

  1. What's Biscoff? Your biscoff-buckeyes look great! Thanks for making these with me this week.

  2. What a great idea and your candy looks beautiful. Nice job Kirsten.

  3. I just bought some Biscoff, but I haven't used it yet(except to taste it of course~Yum!) What a great idea to use it for the buckeyes!They look gorgeous!

  4. I love the idea of doing this biscoff! The flavor has to be yummy!

  5. Kirsten,
    In answer to your question, yes, these were less sweet than the ones I used to make. I was thinking it might be the graham crackers, if that's possible. I love them too! They are slightly addicting!

  6. Genius idea with the biscoff! I love the cookies but have never used actual biscoff. Hopefully your Hubby approved? I went the easy route and coated the whole candy. Your biscoff buckeyes look great!

  7. These look fantastic. I have never made these. I will be this year! Come visit. We have a terrific mulled cider, legacy cookbook and a book review today.

  8. Your candies look awesome! Love your photo, too.

  9. Your buckeyes looks really great!\
    It's a wonderful idea, and I love it

  10. Found your link on the Bacon Time linky party, these look so delicious! Not gonna lie, I only recently found out what a buckeye was when a friend from Ohio had his mother send him a huge box to share!

  11. Your Buckeyes look awesome! My very best wishes to you and your family for a blessed Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope to see you again real soon!

  14. You are a genius! I love Biscoff cookies and spread and can't wait to make these little gems.

  15. I would love it if you would join me in linking up at my weekly Clever Chicks Blog Hop: http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2012/12/clever-chicks-blog-hop-10-rural.html
