Sneaky Chef Buckeyes

Here's a take on an Ohio favorite snack, taking out peanut butter so kids with nut allergies can eat them too.

Sneaky Chef Buckeyes

Makes about 16 candies

1 cup Sneaky Chef No-Nut Butter

1 cup oats, finely ground (in a food processor)

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1.    Line a plate with waxed paper; set aside.

2.    In a medium bowl, mix No-Nut Butter and ground oats to form a firm dough. Shape into small balls (tablespoon sized). Place on prepared plate, and freeze for about 30 minutes.

3.    Melt chocolate in a metal bowl over a pan of lightly simmering water. Stir occasionally until smooth, and remove from heat.

4.    Remove balls from freezer. Insert a wooden toothpick into a ball, and dip into melted chocolate covering all but a circle on the top center (resembling a buckeye from a buckeye tree). Allow each ball to cool on a piece of wax paper.
