Buckeyes

  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 T. Milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt (unless using salted butter, then omit!)

Chocolate Dip

  • 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 T. Heavy Cream
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 1/4 C. Butter (Can use parafin wax for shine.)

Mix Peanut Butter, Butter, vanilla & salt together until well blended.  Gradually add powdered sugar and mix with your hands until a “dough” forms. Firm peanut butter, but not crumbly… Just keep mixing it… and mixing it.. and mixing it….. If you have mixed til you cant mix anymore and it’s still too crumbly, add 1/2 tsp. vanilla.

Form into balls. Spread out on a cookie sheet. Poke with toothpicks. (so you can use it to coat in the chocolate) Chill for 30 minutes+

Before you take them out of the fridge, melt your chocolate, butter, vanilla and heavy cream together in a glass bowl over a boiling pan of water (or use a double boiler!) Dip using the toothpick as a handle leaving a small amount showing at the top, to resemble a buckeye! Let dry on a cookie sheet with wax paper, or a silpat!
