Directions

  1. Combine peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs, and confectioners' sugar in a bowl or a food processor until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Roll teaspoonfuls of peanut butter mixture into balls. Refrigerate until ready to dip in melted chocolate.
  3. Melt chocolate chips and shortening together in the top of a double boiler until very liquid. Using a fork or a skewer, dip each ball into chocolate leaving just the very top of the ball exposed. Set on a greased cookie sheet, setting each ball on the peanut butter end. Refrigerate until the chocolate is firm.

This is the ONLY Buckeye recipe I use because not only does it taste better with the graham crackers, it also doesn't use tons of confectioner's sugar. Once you've tried this version, you will wonder how you ever made them with all that sugar! I double this recipe and make smaller balls as they get heavy on the toothpick when you dip/coat them in the semi-sweet melted chips. This recipe has become a family tradition with my own family and now my extended family. I can't show up for the big Christmas gathering without it!

Delicious! I like this Buckeye recipe because it has the graham crumbs in it. Gives them a bit more body and firmness. Try them!
