Buckeye Recipe


INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 cups confectioners' sugar
( Icing sugar)
4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
(I use Coles brand milk chocolate cooking buds mmmm)

DIRECTIONS
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.
( I put in a little bit of oil)
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.

Makes 30

Hi Melanie!
When I saw this " cutting crooked lines, sewing jagged seams, colouring outside the lines, wrecking what was working and tinkering with toys that go "bing" I knew I had found a soul-mate!!

Thanks for visiting me earlier--I'm off to add your link so I don't lose you.
