Holiday Dessert Recipe {Repost}: Buckeyes

This is another dessert recipe {repost}...Buckeyes! These are peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate that look similar to the Buckeye nut...thus their name. They are very delicious, very sweet, and another one of my family's favorites. :)

  • 1 1/2 Cups Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Butter (softened)
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla
  • 16 Oz. Confectioner's Sugar
  • 6 Oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 TB. Shortening
  • Toothpicks
  • Wax Paper

  1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and confectioners' sugar with hands to form a smooth stiff dough. Shape into balls using 2 teaspoons of dough for each ball. Place on prepared pan, and refrigerate.
  3. Melt shortening and chocolate together stirring occasionally until smooth, and remove from heat.
  4. Remove the balls from refrigerator. Insert a wooden toothpick into a ball, and dip into melted chocolate. Return to wax paper, chocolate side down, and remove toothpick. Repeat with remaining balls. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.
So very sweet and yummy...enjoy! :)

Have a lovely day!
