White Chocolate Candy Corn Buckeyes are everything you love about traditional buckeyes….with a fun Halloween twist!
Well….it’s just about that time! Time for Halloween!! Which, around here, means enough candy to last the rest of the year. I don’t know what it is, but for some reason, my kids seem to come home with a bigger haul than I ever remember as a kid! And even though their dad and I go to town on it for a good week or so, there is always enough left over that I am convinced we will never need to buy candy again.
And, for a long time, we don’t! Because after the first few weeks of candy-mania, we all tend to lose interest….and whatever is left in the bag is sure to be left there for a long time! But I’m thinking this year might be different. I’m thinking this year I’m going to have some fun with all the candy that’s left come mid-November! Starting with these White Chocolate Candy Corn Buckeyes.
Buckeyes are always one of my favorite holiday candies, and now I have an excuse to make (and eat) them early! And, since there’s bound to be candy corn left in the bag, I’ll be all set! It’s the perfect way to make use of our extra candy…. and the perfect way to spread the love to neighbors, friends, family, co-workers, teachers…you name it! Everyone loves buckeyes, and especially buckeyes with the delicious twist of candy corn mixed into the creamy peanut butter center. Just in time for your first round of holiday baking……Happy Halloween, Everyone!
