Over the weekend I busted out a large batch of buckeyes. I love buckeyes, they are peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. These are really simple, just mix softened butter, peanut butter, powdered sugar and vanilla.
The recipe I used for the dough makes about 150 buckeyes, they go pretty fast around here so I need a pretty high count.
1 LB Softened Butter
2 LB Peanut Butter
2 LB Powdered Sugar
3 Tsp. Vanilla
Once you have finished rolling all of the peanut butter balls stick them in the freezer for a little bit just enough for them to harden. Allowing them to harden makes it easier to stick a toothpick in and dip them in chocolate.
These will get soft if they are left out so I would recommend at least keeping them in the fridge until eaten, I usually put them out on a plate no sooner than an hour before we have company. I put the bulk of the buckeyes in the freezer until we run out in the fridge, it's also the only way I can keep DB away from eating all of them before Christmas.
