Stir and Season Saturday

"Stir and Season" Saturday

Goodness, I think it's been almost 17 years when I first came to Ohio for college and tried my first "buckeye". A truly yummy delight! It is peanut butter with chocolate...who could not like that combination???

Today, I am sharing with you my Buckeye Bars...they are so yummy...you will have to give them away or may EAT them all yourself!


buckeye bars

1 stick of butter, softened

3/4 cup crunch peanut butter

22 Nilla wafers, crushed(3/4 cup it should make)

2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 tub of 8oz cool whip topping (do not thaw)

3 squares of Baker's semi sweet chocolate

Make it:

Line 8 inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil over the sides. Beat butter and peanut butter till blended; add wafer crumbs; mix well; Gradually add sugar, mixing well. Press onto bottom of pan.

Microwave frozen cool whip and chocolate in bowl on high for one minute; stir; Microwave 13-30 seconds more till chocolate is melted; stir to blend; Pour over peanut butter layer; spread to cover peanut butter layer.

Refrigerate 2 hours. Use foil handles to lift dessert from pan before cutting! Enjoy!

Oh, I LOVE buckeyes!! I grew up in Ohio (Cincy area) and they were a Christmas favorite. Now I usually make them every year. These bars sound very good, too! I may have to try these instead this year.

That is so weird! This recipe is in the Kraft Foods & Family magazine this month. First thing I thought when I saw it was, YUM.

Chris said...

My mouth is watering, I'll be adding this to my collection of recipes too. I've made Buckeye candy before, but this sounds like it is much easier. That works for me. LOL

HUGS,

i adore buckeyes-both of my parents are from there...however, with two of my boys with peanut allergies (!), I'll have to pass-I buy them sometimes, but the homemade ones are always the best...

We are life-long Buckeyes and LOVE homemade buckeyes (but hate making them). I will certainly try this recipe--thanks! (Wouldn't it be funny if we're neighbors?!)

AJ said...

OMG Sandy! I LOVE buckeyes! I just recently rediscovered them and it brought back so many memories of when my mom would make them at Christmastime! I can't wait to try this recipe! To me, nothing is better than chocolate and peanut butter!!!

Darlene said...

Oh my that sounds WONDERFUL...I would have to share them cause otherwise I would eat them all myself...I just have no self-control with yummies like that!

Betsy said...

Sounds tasty. My husband would love them.

These are some of my favorite treats, but I haven't made them in awhile. With Thanksgiving around the corner, I may have to whip some up.

Hope you're having a great weekend!!

Buckeyes are my favorite--my grandmother made them every year (doubled and sometimes tripled the recipe). We would have enough to get us from Christmas to St. Patrick's day!!! They are a treat and a favorite to make for everyone at Christmas!
I'm going to try the recipe--nothing is better than PB and chocolate!

lmerie said...

Can you believe I am not a peanut fan? Although I do enjoy Nutella...

Wildwood Mama said...

Buckeyes are SO good! My man is from Ohio and when he first introduced them to me I was entranced :)
