Angela's Buckeye Balls


Peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. They look like buckeye nuts. Absolutely delicious!

3 dozen


  • ½ cup butter, melted

  • 1 pound confectioners' sugar

  • 1 ½ cups peanut butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

  • 1 tablespoon shortening


  1. Combine the melted butter or margarine, confectioners' sugar, peanut butter and the vanilla together and mix well. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on waxed paper.

  2. In the top half of a double boiler melt the chocolate chips and shortening, stirring constantly. Use a toothpick to dip balls into the melted chocolate, leaving a small uncovered area so balls resemble buckeyes. Place balls on waxed paper. Use fingers to blend in toothpick holes. Refrigerate until chocolate is firm. Enjoy!
