Buckeye Fudge is what happens when you combine creamy peanut butter fudge with smooth, rich, dark chocolate fudge.
This was my answer to a craving for buckeye candy on a day when I simply didn’t have time to play in the kitchen. Buckeye Candy is a classic for a good reason; those cute balls of peanut butter fudge dipped in a chocolate coating are everybody’s favorite. Most of the time though, I just don’t have the time or motivation to roll and dip all of them!
My kids absolutely flipped for this fudge, and I kept going back for just one more taste. I finally resorted to sending the rest of the fudge off to work with Sean, so that I wouldn’t eat the whole batch myself. Buckeye Fudge is going on our Christmas baking list and it’s sure to be a favorite for years. I love finding shortcut and simplified methods to re-make our favorite recipes!
This recipe is over the top simple. Stir together Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge (5-minute recipe), pour it into a pan and then top it with this simple variation on Easy Chocolate Fudge (also a 5-minute recipe). Let it cool, slice, and eat!
I’ve listed the fudge as 48 servings. However, I liked my bites sliced even smaller, (this fudge is rich!) so it really turned out to be closer to 80 little bite-size squares for my family. By popular request, directions are included for both microwave and stove-top preparation.
