A friend of mine just reminded me what a great gift item candy buckeyes are, especially for people who live outside of Ohio. Growing up in Columbus, candy buckeyes were always a part of any platter or tin of holiday treats. Made of chocolate and peanut butter and crafted to look like the fruit of Ohio's state tree, the Buckeye, these bite-size treats are always a crowd-pleaser. They're easy to make, too.
