The tree has for many years served as inspiration for a variety of things – famous quotes, paintings, and architecture. However, rarely does inspiration manifest itself in a form so sweet and decadent as the famous Buckeye. Inspired by the nut of the Ohio buckeye tree, this famous confection came onto the scene in the early 20th century and has been a staple during holiday gatherings and sports games.
This tiny but maddeningly addictive treat is a harmonious marriage of peanut butter, sugar and butter, rolled into a ball, then partially dipped into dark chocolate – leaving a portion of the peanut butter visible to resemble its namesake nut. What sets this concoction apart from other chocolate and peanut butter treats is the perfect balance of the crispy chocolate coating with the soft and tender peanut butter filling which leaves your mouth begging for more!
Columbus, Ohio based gourmet confectioner, Brownie Points, has been making these sweet treats the authentic Ohio way and they’re now available for purchase right here on Golbely. Folk wisdom says that carrying a buckeye nut in your pocket will bring you good luck – though we can’t guarantee the same for these sweet treats, we do know they’ll bring a smile to your face!
