So, what’s a buckeye? If you’re into sports at all, you may have heard of the Ohio State Buckeyes. Ring a bell? Well, the state tree of Ohio is the buckeye. And the buckeye tree produces these seeds that are circular with a dark brown color and a light brown circle in the middle. These peanut butter buckeye balls are named because they resemble this seed from the buckeye tree. Lil’ fun fact for you there. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for 5 days. You can freeze the finished buckeyes. Place them in an airtight container or a freezer safe ziplock bag and store in the freezer for 2-3 months.
