In all honesty, I’ve never even heard of a buckeye until I started blogging, I’m not sure if it’s because it’s more of a midwest thing, back east. southern or just a plain non-southern California thing. But even if these weren’t regional, I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t have found their way into my very traditional Asian upbringing.
As a result of that, and lucky for me, I’m still trying to fill in the gaps with a lot of desserts that are new to me. Yay to a valid excuse for complete gluttony.
Hit the jump here to Better Homes and Garden’s blog Delish Dish for the recipe to these Almond Butter Buckeye Bars.
As always, if I can please ask you guys–if you are going to pin any of the images please do so from Delish Dish and not here, since the recipes reside over there. Thanks!

Oh yes- buckeyes. I grew up with them and I’m shocked when people don’t know what they are 🙂
Love buckeyes and will check out the recipe.

I have no idea what Buck eyes are, It is not common in Australia. The title had me hooked, I love almonds so I will def go to website.
Anna @ Crunchy Creamy Sweet says
Buckeyes are highly popular here in Kansas around holidays. They are fun but time consuming. 🙂 I love your bar version, Naomi! And the almond butter – yummers!
Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar says
Total love for these! Yum!

Jackie @ The Beeroness says
I’m with you, I’m an LA girl and I’d never heard of those until I entered Blogland. But I fully support the idea, no matter what it’s called.
Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes says
Going to check these out – they look awesome!
Gorgeous photos! These look amazing! 🙂
I’ve only heard of them recently too. Definitely NOT a West Coast thing… Love them in a bar!
Angelyn @ Everyday Desserts says

chocolate plus peanut butter melts my heart. Thanks for sharing!
Hi there! Want to make these desperately but just went over to Delish Dish site and recipe nowhere to be seen just the image and text…or am I going crazy?
I am in the same boat as Kim. I also went to Delish Dish site and couldn’t find the recipe anywhere. Am I missing something?

These look gorgeous, I can’t wait to try cooking with almond butter. I’m too much of a sucker for peanut butter!
julia [life on churchill] says
Ohh I am going to try this recipe! My son is allergic to peanut butter, I love that this calls for almond butter.
Natasha @ The Cake Merchant says
I grew up in the Midwest, so buckeyes were (and still are) very popular. I’ve never tried it in bar form, but these look great!
Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie says
I had never heard of them until I went to Ohio State, which makes sense since it is the Buckeye state after all! But I’ve been obsessed ever since.
I can’t ever see your recipes on the other website. Any chance you can put a link on here as well? It’s such a bummer as Id really like to make them. 🙁
Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen says
Same here, buckeyes were not part of my vocabulary until I started blogging but I’m glad I know about them now!
Hi Naomi! Just wanted to compliment you because not only your recipes, but also your photos are getting better and better! They are wonderful! You really are an artist, i love your colours. have a good week!
