Buckeye Balls

Buckeye Balls

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 bag of chocolate candy melts

Directions

  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 chocolate in a metal bowl over a pan of lightly simmering water (or in the microwave according to directions on package.) Stir occasionally until smooth, and remove from heat.
  4. Remove 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.

I just realized I got NO pictures of the finished product this time around but I just remembered that I made these for Christmas last year. Here’s a picture of them completely covered:
