My first true dessert love is wedding cake. My second? Buckeyes. They are definitely a close second, because with buckeyes I can’t do this….
But no one makes a buckeye like my aunt JoAnn. No one. Not even these “healthier” buckeyes taste as good as hers (not that they should,why would they? They are lighter, and not even close to as rich as hers. Not even close). In case you don’t know where I am going with this, The Ohio State Buckeye football team has their first game tomorrow. We were planning on going, but we’ve decided to go to next week’s game instead (it should be a better game anyway). But of course we’ll still be watching the game on TV, and we’re starting our pre-gaming right now, with these Buckeye Protein Pancakes (and in case you still aren’t aware of exactly what a Buckeye candy is, it’s rich creamy peanut butter and sugar dipped in chocolate).
4. Top with peanut butter and cocoa and powdered sugar to taste.

Chasing these pancakes down with a big ol’ glass of milk was the icing on the cake (but of course, not buttercream. hahahaha). I just know this is going to be a great football season. I can smell it in the air (or, maybe that’s just chocolate and peanut butter I smell….). GO BUCKS!
