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!
