Buckeyes for Buckeyes....

I decided not to add this on the Friday Fall Recipes, but to post this today. ( but it will be labeled with the fall recipes.)
I have never made buckeyes before, but I have wanted to for a while.
Here is the recipe I found to try.....


Buckeyes

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

In a large bowl mix together peanut butter, butter, vanilla and confectioners sugar.
Roll into 1 inch balls.
Place balls on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.

Place a tooth pick on the top of each ball.
Chill in the freezer until firm.
Usually around 30 min.

Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a bowl set over a pan of barley simmering water.
Stir until smooth.

Dip frozen peanut butter balls in chocolate ( holding onto the tooth pick).
leave a small portion of the peanut butter at the top so the look like buckeyes.
Refrigerate until serving.
