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.
