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!

  23. Now I’m nervous. I made these, waiting for them to cool, but I’m confused. My brownie mix calls for 1/2 cup oil and 1/4 cup of water. I left out the water and reduced the oil to the 1/3 cup you call for. Hope that’s right! They seemed dry. I was confident until I read the response when you told someone they could substitute their favorite brownie recipe. Crossing my fingers!

    Go Bucks!
