Last month, Bob Evans revealed its most Ohio-centric menu item yet— Buckeye hotcakes.

We snuck out of the office to try a stack of these peanut buttery, chocolate drizzled pancakes for lunch, and I am here to report that Bob Evans knocked it out of the park.

The pancakes come loaded with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, topped with Reese’s peanut butter sauce, powdered sugar and whipped topping on the side.

Now, this is coming from a breakfast connoisseur who opts for a more savory bite. However, Bob’s Buckeye pancakes have all the richness you’d hope for in a sweet breakfast option, but yet wasn’t too much to where I felt like I needed a glass of milk with every other bite.

This next part took my meal to the next level. For only 80 cents, you can top your stack with a generous scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

A four-stack of the new Buckeye hotcakes costs $7.49.
