Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups Smucker's® Creamy Natural Peanut Butter, stirred OR Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 3 cups powdered sugar, or as needed

  • 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 2 tablespoons Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening

Directions

  1. Combine peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low until blended. Add 2 cups powdered sugar, beating until blended. Beat in additional powdered sugar until the mixture, when shaped into a ball, will stay on a toothpick. Shape into 1-inch balls. Refrigerate.

  2. Meanwhile, place chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium for 30 seconds. Stir. Repeat until the mixture is smooth. Reheat as needed while coating peanut butter balls.

  3. Insert a toothpick in peanut butter ball. Dip 3/4 of ball into chocolate, leaving top uncovered to resemble a buckeye. Remove excess. Place on wax paper-lined tray. Remove toothpick. Smooth over holes. Refrigerate until firm.
