    Lainey6605's Note:

    This buttery and nutty chocolate confection was inspired by the nuts that fall from Ohio's famous buckeye trees. Come holiday time, they are produced (and consumed) in mass quantities in "The Buckeye State," as well as in neighboring states throughout the Midwest. Note: You may substitute peanut or cashew butter for almond butter; omit almond extract if you use a substitution.

      A favorite here at the holiday time. A request from DS's to have on hand to bring to there work parties. I find these freeze really well too. I opted to use regular p.b. Love the bittersweet chocolate for dipping as opposed to regular chocolate. Makes them not quite so sweet. Made for PRMR.~
