Buckeyes


This is a recipe from allrecipes.com submitted by Tammy Winters
Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 cup buttersoftened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

6 cups confectioners' sugar
( I only had 4 cups on hand seem to work just as well)
4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
( I was about 1/4 cup short)

Directions:

1.In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, butter, vanilla and sugar. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a waxed lined cookie sheet.
2. Press a toothpick into the top of each ball
(I used one toothpick to put the ball into the melted chocolate) and chill in the freezer until firm, about 30 minutes.
3. Melt chocolate chips in double boiler or in a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until smooth.
(I melted in a pan on medium heat and stirred frequently until melted)
4. Dip frozen peanut butter balls in chocolate holding onto the toothpick. Leave a small portion of peanut butter showing at the top to make them like Buckeyes. Put back on cookie sheet and refrigerate until serving.


I found this to be a tedious endeavor, but I figure the next time I can have my kids help more with the chocolate since I will know what to expect the second time around. They were however, very delicious so worth the time it took to dip them in chocolate.
