Expert Tips

  • Buckeye fudge is named for the buckeye candies, which are peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. The name comes from their resemblance to the nut of the buckeye tree.
  • Peanut butter chips can be very heat sensitive, so it is important to reduce the power level when melting in the microwave.
  • To line pan with foil, turn pan upside down. Tear off a piece of foil longer than the pan. Smooth foil around pan bottom, then remove. Turn pan over, and gently fit shaped foil into pan. When fudge is cooled completely, lift out of pan by foil “handles,” peel back foil, and cut into pieces.
