Peanut Butter Chocolate Buckeyes Recipe

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.




Holiday baking season is upon us! Chocolate and peanut butter are probably one of the best dessert combinations and this recipe gives a nice balance of both.  Buckeyes are very similar to chocolate peanut butter balls but I actually prefer them because I feel there is more of a balance in taste.  Not too sweet but the chocolate compliments the peanut butter perfectly.

Ingredients:

1 ½ cup creamy peanut butter
1 stick of margarine (can use butter)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar
Melting chocolate
toothpicks
wax paper



How to make:
Mix your melted margarine and peanut butter together. Once it is well mixed, slowly add in your powdered sugar, and vanilla. You will want to mix till incorporated. It is a nice soft texture, doesn't stick to hands. If you feel it isn't the right consistency you can add a little more powdered sugar to the mix.


Once it is mixed, roll the mixture into small balls and sit on some waxed paper. I put a baking sheet underneath.


When all the balls are formed, stick a toothpick in the center of each ball. Place them all in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until firm.



When they are firm, warm up your chocolate melting chocolate and holding the toothpick dip the balls in the chocolate. Leave the top part of the ball showing of peanut butter. Do for each ball.


You can store in the fridge until ready to eat.  Enjoy!
