Peanutty Buckeye Bars

I love buckeyes. And I am not talking about the Ohio State Buckeyes, I don’t like to talk about them. I am an Illini fan. I am talking about the chocolate peanut butter buckeyes that are insanely delicious. The ones you pop in your mouth and keep popping until they are gone and you have a stomachache. I love those buckeyes.

Well, I was recently looking at recipes on Better Homes and Gardens and I came across a recipe for Peanutty Buckeye Bars. I immediately bookmarked the recipe. Buckeyes, but in bar form? Count me in!


I was waiting for the perfect reason/excuse to make these bars. Well, it was our friend’s birthday and he is a huge peanut butter and chocolate fan, just like me. So I pulled up the Peanutty Buckeye Bars recipe and got baking. It was time to celebrate. Everyone deserves a special birthday treat.

The bars are simple to make and will blow your mind. They go a little something like this-a layer of rich chocolaty brownie with crunchy peanuts, a layer of creamy peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk, and another layer of peanutty brownie.

You are craving Peanutty Buckeye Bars, huh? It happened to me too! These bars are a must make!

For the recipe, check out my guest post on BHG! Enjoy!

    Maria they look crazyyyyyyy good! I am all about layered bars, especially with chocolate + PB! But unfortunately I can’t get that link to work for the recipe. It’s a 404 error, page not found :(

    Hush now on that Ohio State hatred haha. At least you’re not a Michigan fan, then we would have some issues :-P. But definitely agree that the buckeye candies and everything inspired by them is amazing. Loving these bars.

  13. claire — April 12, 2013 @ 9:49 am

    We don’t have brownie mix here; how would you recommend we make this from scratch? Enquiring peanut butter and chocoholics would love to know! Thanks!

    Buckeyes are definitely a favorite here, so I’ll have to give these a try! Funny tidbit- For some weird reason I keep reading the title of these as “Peanut Butty” instead of “Peanutty”. lol!
