I’m pretty sure that any treat you can put on a stick, can make it a little better (& quite possibly, easier to eat). I remixed this classic buckeye recipe by putting them on a cookie or candy stick, & dipping the bottoms in crushed pretzels (right after the chocolate) creating a buckeye pretzel pop. Put them in a little baggie with a bow & they make a precious package for a little holiday treat/ gift! And um, sweet & salty? Yes.
(side note: I recommend using a peanut butter that doesn’t need to be refrigerated, like Jif, they tend to be a little more sturdy at room temperature).
