Disclaimer: This recipe contains Peanuts.
Step 1: Ingredients for recipe
1/2 stick (4 Tbsp) butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup crunchy or creamy peanut butter (I like the added texture of crunchy)
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups (12 oz bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips
This recipe makes approximately 45 buckeyes and can be completed in about an hour.
Step 2: Mix the ingredients for the balls
Step 3: Make the peanut butter balls
(Covering the cookie sheet keeps the balls from sticking and can be used again in the chocolate dipping step.)
Step 4: Melt the chocolate chips
( Use a double broiler or other method at your own risk. Be careful around hot surfaces.)
Step 5: Dipping the balls into the chocolate
(I use the same cookie sheet by putting the balls back in the freezer in the mixing bowl.)
