I’m not living up to my title very well, am I?
Rest assured that even though the Little Vegan isn’t posting about chocolate, she is still consuming it in ridiculously exorbitant quantities. Just in case anyone was worried ;o)
But here’s a chocolate post for ya! My friend is from Ohio, so I decided to surprise him for his birthday by making something to remind him of home. The buckeye is the state tree of Ohio, and “buckeyes” refer to the nuts on the tree (the Native Americans thought the nuts looked like bucks’ eyes, hence the name). The buckeye confection, which uses peanut butter and chocolate to resemble the nut, is a popular indulgence in Ohio. It also happened to be quite popular at my friend’s party here in Dallas!
