Buckeyes??

Yeah, I know...this should be easy. However, does anyone have a good buckeye recipe? I would like to make these with my other Christmas creations, however I have never made them before. Any tips, suggestions, recipes?...Thanks!

  • I had the ingredients on hand so I just made the above recipe that I posted. Not hard, especially since you just dump all the stuff in the bowl, except the chocolate. I had to add a tablespoon of softened butter to the mixture, probably because I used crunchy peanut butter. I have about 3 dozen 1 1/2 inch round balls. My chocolate wasn't soft enough to coat the whole thing, so only the bottom thirds got coated. I just tried one and it is very good. I even like the crunchy peanut butter, although next time I'd try smooth. The chocolate hasn't hardened yet, but I see no reason why it won't. Thank you for the idea!

  • one of my coworkers makes these for us every year so I've never had to make them. Try recipe.com or something?

  • I found this at cooks.com
    "1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
    1 box powdered sugar
    1 tbsp. vanilla
    12 oz. peanut butter
    12 oz. chocolate chips

    Thoroughly mix butter, sugar, vanilla and peanut butter. Roll into small balls. Melt chocolate in double boiler. Keep on low heat while dipping balls-use toothpicks for dipping. Leave a small space open at top to give appearance of a buckeye. Put on waxed paper to dry."
