Chocolate and peanut butter is just about as cliche of a food combination as it gets, but is just so tasty that nobody seems to care. These are the main ingredients of “buckeyes”, the official candy of Ohio. Buckeyes have been indigenous to the state since the mid 1900′s. The candy gets its name from the resemblance to the nut of a buckeye tree, the official tree of Ohio. Buckeyes chocolates are now mass produced and can be found in grocery stores and chocolate shops around the country. If you would like to make the Ohio delicacy at home, I have attached the recipe below.
