Gussy Sews Inspiration

Today's prompt is Fall.
so, I decided that I would post a recipe for Buckeyes ( I know I have posted it before) but it is great for Fall .... especially for those Ohio State Buckeyes!
These are yummy especially if you love chocolate and peanut butter like I do!



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.

Why are buckeyes SO good?! My hubby would eat these all day long and I wouldn't be far behind him!
