“This recipe is so good that I double it whenever I make it. Since it is peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate it is almost like candy. Real buckeyes are nuts that grow on trees and are related to the horse chestnut.” - by Tammy Winters
Original recipe yields 5 dozen
- In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, butter, vanilla and confectioners' sugar. The dough will look dry. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet.
- Press a toothpick into the top of each ball (to be used later as the handle for dipping) and chill in freezer until firm, about 30 minutes.
- Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until smooth.
- Dip frozen peanut butter balls in chocolate holding onto the toothpick. Leave a small portion of peanut butter showing at the top to make them look like Buckeyes. Put back on the cookie sheet and refrigerate until serving.

"Realy really, good! But it took me a few tries to get the technique right. This might help: the chocolate has the be very hot and the balls must be very cold for the chocolate to stick right. I melted..." See more the chocolate in the microwave, so I popped it back in for about a minute every couple minutes; and DONT take the balls out of the freezer until RIGHT before you are about to dip them. They will start to sweat after being out for a few minutes and this will keep the chocolate from sticking. "
"I've made this recipe several times and everyone loves them! I use 4 cups confectioner's sugar and 2 cups peanut butter. A few other techniques that have helped: chill the peanut butter mixture in t..." See morehe fridge 30 minutes before making the balls - this will help make a smoother, rounder buckeye. Also, melt more chocolate than the recipe calls for so you have a good pool of chocolate to dip the ball into (you'll throw chocolate away, but it will make the product look better)."
