Buckeye candy (also referred to simply as buckeyes) is a confection made from a peanut butter mixture, which is partially dipped in chocolate. Named for their resemblance to the nut of the Ohio buckeye tree, this candy is indigenous to the state of Ohio in the United States. Buckeyes can be homemade, but are also available in mail order catalogs and candy shops.
