So-called because of the candy's resemblance of the nut of a Buckeye tree, which was thought to look like a buck's eye (deer's eye). Buckeyes are poisonous nuts, so these peanut butter and chocolate treats are a better choice for eating!

Horrible horrible recipe! DO NOT USE! The peanut butter mix is way too dry, you'll end up having to doctor it up to get it to come out right. Save yourself the trouble and find another recipe, or be like me and have a mess that you end up having to fix by looking up another recipes anyway
