Original recipe yields 1 10x15-inch jelly roll pan



  1. Grease a 10x15-inch jelly roll pan.
  2. Mix confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, margarine, brown sugar, and vanilla together in a bowl. Press peanut butter mixture into the prepared pan.
  3. Melt chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching.
  4. Pour melted chocolate evenly over the peanut butter layer. Let buckeye bars cool completely before cutting into squares.

I took them to work and everyone loved them. They were very mushy and we had to stick them back in the fridge half way through the day, though. I probably would go ahead and make actual buckeyes next time because they got a little messy, but the flavor was good. Maybe a little more powdered sugar would have firmed them up.



Not a good version of this recipe. I had made these several years ago and was trying to find a recipe for "buckeye bars" that was similar to what I remember making in the past. The chocolate became brittle and cracked after refrigerating them. Looking back I remember having a little bit of butter mixed in with the chocolate so that they cut easier after being refrigerated. Look somewhere else for a recipe!
