  1. Combine the melted butter or margarine, confectioners' sugar, peanut butter and the vanilla together and mix well. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on waxed paper.
  2. In the top half of a double boiler melt the chocolate chips and shortening, stirring constantly. Use a toothpick to dip balls into the melted chocolate, leaving a small uncovered area so balls resemble buckeyes. Place balls on waxed paper. Use fingers to blend in toothpick holes. Refrigerate until chocolate is firm. Enjoy!

Great recipe! Very sweet and a great consistency. This was the first time I have ever made Buckeyes so I think I made a mistake adding the melted butter directly to the powdered sugar because ...

OUT OF THIS WORLD!! I followed the tip of using 3 cups of powdered sugar. These were disappeared much faster than they should have! This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Made these for the holidays and they were a real hit! Everyone who had some asked for more. :-)

Hi this recipe was so easy to make. Everyone loved it, too. My only problem was that they turned out a little dry in the middle. Then I heard that if you want them to be dry you need to u...

These came out very tasty, but I had trouble dipping them. They kept sliding off the toothpick.
