Buckeye Pretzel Bites

Inspired by the buckeye, a candy that is popular in Ohio (named because it resembles the nut of the buckeye tree). In these buckeye pretzel bites the peanut butter filling of that candy is sandwiched between two pretzels and then dipped and drizzled in dark chocolate.

These buckeye pretzel bites were the first ever small-batch treat that I developed a couple of years ago in a tiny two bedroom apartment with a squishy little kitchen. They’ve evolved over time, but I love them just as much now as I did that first time I made them.
