Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 6 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • Blend peanut butter, sugar, butter, and vanilla. (Dough will look dry).
  • Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
  • Poke a toothpick into the top of each ball (to be used later as the handle for dipping) and chill in freezer until hard (1/2 hour).
  • Melt chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler (use very low heat, not much hotter than tap water or the chocolate will get grainy. This will take awhile).
  • 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 wax paper lined cookie sheet and refrigerate 2 hours.
