Buckeyes are traditionally from the state of Ohio and are a delicious treat consisting of peanut butter balls covered in chocolate. These delicious treats are a favorite of my family because my siblings and I were all born in Ohio, the “Buckeye land”, and are fans of the Ohio State Buckeye football team.
