Introduction: Peanut Butter Chocolate Buckeyes

About: Hey there! I like to sew and craft and adventure and so many other things I could bore you to tears. But I won't. Sooo well, have a good day :)
Peanut Butter and Chocolate are sooo delish when put together. Make these Buckeye balls and you won't want to stop eating!

Recipe:
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • 1 pound confectioners' sugar (yes, you'll need to weigh this out)
  • 1½ cups peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
 Mix together the confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, vanilla, and the melted butter. Make sure you do the butter last so it doesn't solidify before it gets mixed up. Refrigerate until firm, this will take about an hour.
 Once its hard, roll into 1 inch balls and put on wax paper.
Put some water in the bottom half of a double boiler, and then melt the chocolate chips and the shortening in the top. Make sure to stir constantly, so that it melts evenly.
Once you have nice, melty chocolate, insert a toothpick into one of the peanut balls, and dip into the chocolate. Leave a small area at the top uncovered, to look like buckeyes. Place them on waxed paper. Use your fingers to smooth out the area where you put the toothpick. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens.  ( Do this in small shifts, so that the peanut butter doesn't soften too much)
 Enjoy your buckeyes!
