Rated 5 out of 5 by from I disagree with "LittleBuckeye01" to an extent. I disagree with "LittleBuckeye01" to an extent. Here's why: I make Buckeyes straight up pure peanut butter and powdered sugar with chocolate...that's it. They didn't taste EXACTLY like a Buckeye, which is where I agree. HOWEVER, this recipe, seriously, took me NO MORE than 15 minutes to do. It was one of the fastest recipes I've ever completed...and of course the setting time is 2 hours...but that's nothing. It is a very simple recipe, and it got rave reviews from those whom I served it to. In fact, at least 5 people asked me for the recipe. This is now a staple in my repertoire. OH, and the chocolate stuff on the top.. fabulous!!! I may use that idea for cakes and brownie "frosting".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh My Goodness! Oh My Goodness! These were awesome tasting, they taste like reese's cup but on a classy level, (you know put on your after five dinner dress). I did change the chocolate, I used Baker's simi-sweet chocolate bars. After the first bite, I knew that this goes with ice cold milk and everyone liked these. (And no its not because we are from the Buckeye state. I will be making these a lot of times through the year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from delicious, except you really have to spread the cookie mix into the pan. delicious, except you really have to spread the cookie mix into the pan. Has anyone thought of using a little Gulf Wax to the choc mix like regular Buckeyes? If so did they set better? Also I saw a review in 2008 by SSMJD who said she has a recipe for a 9x13 pan. Any chance of sharing it? These bars are great. I live in Ohio and make Buckeyes every yr but not THIS one. It's Buckeye Bars from now on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I brought these in to work a couple days after I originally received the recipe in the newsletter. I brought these in to work a couple days after I originally received the recipe in the newsletter. They were a huge hit. I did make a couple of changes; doubled the recipe for the PB layer, 9x13 pan, and for the topping I used 2c chocolate chips melted with some shortening since I didn't have Cool Whip. I'll be making these again for our Christmas potluck and my family Christmas gathering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have not actually made this exact recipe. I have not actually made this exact recipe. I have made a similar recipe for peanut butter bars for many years, except my recipe uses graham cracker crumbs in place of the nilla wafers and 2 cups of melted semi-sweet chocolate chips in place of the cool whip/ bakers chocolate mixture - keeps the chocolate from being so sticky! They are always a hit with everyone and so easy to make!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! Delicious! My husband was skeptical when I made these...I already have a good buckeye bar recipe, and his philosophy was "why change a good thing?" :) I was excited to try this recipe because it looked easier. The end result? Husband loved them, much easier to make! Based on other reviews, I increased the peanut butter to 1 cup, and decreased the powdered sugar to 1.5 cups.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I am a true buckeye ball lover and this is nothing near what I am used to. I am a true buckeye ball lover and this is nothing near what I am used to. It's very soft/mushy. The chocolate topping is not right (almost like pudding). I was not impressed and won't make them again. I will however use my normal buckeye ball recipe and put it in a square pan and make the chocolate "dip" and just pour it on top. I'm sure that will be awesome!
