The Great Online Cookie Exchange Extravaganza 2011

Look, the snow is back (if you are on my actual blog)!  I love the snow feature.  Anyway, this isn’t my own personal recipe or anything that I came up with but these are really big where I live.  They are usually only made around Christmas time.  If you like the chocolate and peanut butter combination, you will love these.  They are super yummy!

Buckeyes

Ingredients

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

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until smooth.
  4. 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.

  1. How cute these are Ally! If I add an upside down chocolate chip to make an iris, they would be fun at Halloween as well. My family loves peanut butter, so these will definitely go on my baking (or non-baking?) list!
    I love the snow, and I’ve been trying to add it, but my background is white, and I’m having difficulty changing it.
    Doesn’t it accumulate on your keyboard after a while? l
    They should send a tiny snow shovel when you add this feature. lol
    Happy Holidays! Hugs, Elysia

    They look lovely Ally. Thanks. Is there anything you could use instead of peanut as I’m not a fan of it?

    Love,

    They look so good. I would have loved these years ago before my peanut butter terrors. The rest of you enjoy these for me!

  9. Jz says:

    IF “you like chocolate and peanut butter”…??
    That’s kind of like “IF you like sex” as far as I’m concerned!

    Whoa, dawgies, send me in, coach!
    Totally all over this recipe!

    Thanks for playing along, miz snow bunny.
