DIY-Buckeye Truffles!!!!

These little peanut butter truffles (sometimes called, Buckeyes) are
bite sized, so they are perfect for a holiday party or you can wrap
them up and put them in a little one's stocking.

Here is what you will need to make these little yummies: 1 ounce cream
cheese (softened), 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter, 1/2 cup graham
cracker crumbs, 1 1/2 cups powder sugar, 5 tablespoons unsalted
butter, 6 ounces dark or semi-sweet chocolate and 1 tablespoon
vegetable oil.

In a mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, cream cheese, graham cracker
crumbs and melted butter. Stir until smooth, then stir in powdered
sugar until batter turns to a dough consistency. Form small (2-3
tablespoons) balls and place on wax paper. Put balls in the freezer
while making the coating.

To make the chocolate coating, melt together chocolate and vegetable
oil. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl, coat
in oil. Melt on high for 30 seconds, stir, then melt for another 30
seconds and stir then it should be smooth. Let the chocolate cool for
4-5 minutes. Now using a long skewer or fork, dip the peanut butter
balls in chocolate so it is mostly coated, put them back on the wax
paper. Once you have dipped them all, refrigerate or freeze them for
5-10 minutes until the chocolate is set.

If you use them as stocking stuffers then, wrap them in plastic wrap
and tie them up with a ribbon, or twine or a twistie tie:)
