01 Make sure to use parchment paper so balls do not stick to sheet.
02 Combine peanut butter, powdered sugar, and butter.
03 Let balls sit in fridge to harden.
04 Carefully melt down chocolate chips.
05 Dip hardened peanut butter balls into chocolate.
06 Place in fridge or freezer until set.
We like a super creamy peanut butter like Jif. Combine with melted butter and powdered sugar.
Starting with 2 cups of powdered sugar, slowly add until mixture starts to solidify enough to form a dough.
A tablespoon scoop works perfectly to portion and shape buckeyes.
Make all peanut butter balls and place on a sheet pan covered in parchment. Put in fridge or freezer to set.
Dip balls into melting chocolate or chocolate chips and set on parchment paper. Do all and put back in fridge to set chocolate.
Once set, enjoy. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Buckeye balls are a PERFECT bake ahead and gift dessert. They taste just like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!
