Lindsay Makes That Allergy-friendly Sunbutter Buckeyes

Buckeyes are a midwestern confection, traditionally a peanut butter fudge-type of inside, rounded and coated in chocolate, with part of the peanut butter left uncoated, so it resembles a buckeye, or horse chestnut. To make them allergy-friendly, we use Sunbutter in place of peanut butter, and Enjoy Life dairy-free chocolate chips for the coating.

Main Ingredients

1 tbsp coconut oil

1/2 c. sunbutter

1 c. powdered sugar + c. reserved

1 c. enjoy life dairy-free chocolate chips


1Melt coconut oil in microwave or double boiler

2With mixer, blend Sunbutter and oil, adding powdered sugar a 1/2 cup or so at a time until desired consistency. The texture should resemble a fudge consistency, quite thick and no longer sticky.

3Form tablespoon-size balls and place on a wax-paper or parchment lined cookie sheet.

4Place in the freezer to set, about 15-20 minutes.

5Melt chocolate chips over med-low heat, just until melted.

6Drop Sunbutter balls one at a time into chocolate to coat. If the traditional "buckeye" look is desired, leave a small circle of the Sunbutter filling uncoated.

7Serve immediately or keep in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
