  • Peanut Butter Buckeyes
    1 1/2 cups peanut butter
    1 cup butter, softened
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 6 cups confectioners' sugar
    4 cups semisweet chocolate

    1. In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, butter, vanilla and confectioners' sugar. The dough will look dry. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet.
    2. Press a toothpick into the top of each ball (to be used later as the handle for dipping) and chill in freezer until firm, about 30 minutes.
    3. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until smooth.
    4. Dip frozen peanut butter balls in chocolate holding onto the toothpick. Leave a small portion of peanut butter showing at the top to make them look like Buckeyes. Put back on the cookie sheet and refrigerate until serving.

  • I just made these on Friday and they are all gone. I dip mine completely but that's just because I really like chocolate. If you are traveling with them I recommend freezing them before travel and then use the travel time to let them thaw. Otherwise they don't stack very well and are likely to get squished. I also learned this lesson this weekend. It's a good thing they still taste good when they're flat. LOL!
