I made something that my kids are BEGGING me to make again and the yummy goodness isn’t even gone, yet!
Is this what being a super mom feels like? I’ve never had this happen before, so, you know… I’m new to this type of feeling of awesomeness.
These little yummies are called Buckeye Bars. Now, for those of you who have never lived in Ohio, let me school you on the name buckeye.
….Um… I THINK it’s a tree that drops these nuts that are completely inedible, and these pointless nuts look like a buck’s eye.
WOW! See what living in Ohio can open you up to? Incredible amounts of information!
But for those of you who would really appreciate the facts of a buckeye, I looked it up for you: A Buckeye is a North American tree or shrub related to the horse chestnut.
And for those of you who want to REALLY push up your nerd glasses (which my dad is totally doing right now, *hi dad!*), here is more info on the buckeye tree and nut.
Enough with the botany! (Which, incidentally I failed in college… I know this shocks you.) On to the Lazy Mom Recipe!
I hope you’ll make these little yummy treats! And if you do, think of lil’ ol’ Texan me semi-vibrantly living in a state with inedible nuts that look like an animal’s eye. Mkay?
