Buckeye Balls Candy
by Nikki Willhite
When my boys were young, I would often have peanut butter balls waiting for
them for an after school snack. Peanut butter balls are made with the
first 3 ingredients of this recipe.
What was I thinking? Just one more step and you have Buckeye Balls.
I never ate the peanut butter balls. They were very easy to resist.
Buckeye Balls...not so much!
24 ounces powdered sugar
16 ounces crunchy peanut butter
1 cup butter, softened
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
1 Tbsp shortening
Mix the powdered sugar, peanut butter and butter.
If it is too difficult for you to mix these by hand, use a food processor.
Shape into 1-inch balls.
Melt chocolate chips in the top of a
double boiler or in the microwave. Dip the balls into the chocolate,
leaving a small area exposed.
Place on a sheet of wax paper until chocolate
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
