It’s the first big game of the Buckeyes season, so it’s time to unveil my latest buckeye candies creation!

I may have made white chocolate buckeyes before, but these lavender-honey buckeyes are extra special. Instead vanilla I used a little bit of lavender extract – but not too much to feel like you are eating potpourri.

Then I replaced some of the sugar with orange blossom honey. You really could use any honey. I had hoped the orange would come through a little bit more to get the fruity pebble-like flavor that you get when combining lavender, orange, and white chocolate. Alas they are delicious in their own way.

Finally, I reduced the butter content to counter the extra moisture added by the honey. As a result the yield was a little lower than my traditional buckeyes, but rest assured you’ll still have more than enough!
