Almond Butter Buckeyes
45 mins (prep 45)
6 ingredients
4 servings
This buttery and nutty chocolate confection was inspired by the nuts that fall from Ohio's famous buckeye trees. Come holiday time, they are produced (and consumed) in mass quantities in "The Buckeye State," as well as in neighboring states throughout the Midwest. Note: You may substitute peanut or cashew butter for almond butter; omit almond extract if you use a substitution.
