Buckeye Balls “Buckeyes” Recipe: Chocolate Peanut Butter Goodness

Buckeye Balls RecipeI was searching for a Chocolate Buckeye Balls “Buckeyes” Recipe without parafin wax or shortening, and came up with this one. It worked wonderfully!  However, I couldn’t get the SNL Classic “Schweddy Balls” out of my mind as I made them.  Never heard of Buckeyes?  Here’s what Wikipedia says about them:

Buckeye Balls History

“Buckeye candy (also referred to simply as buckeyes) is a confection made from a peanut butter mixture, which is partially dipped in chocolate. Named for their resemblance to the nut of the Ohio buckeye tree, this candy is indigenous to the state of Ohio in the United States.”

For my Buckeyes recipe, I rolled the entire ball in chocolate.  There are other variations where you add Rice Krispies as well.

Buckeye Balls “Buckeyes” Recipe

1/2 C. (one stick) butter, softened
1 2/3 C. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
4 C. powdered sugar
Chocolate almond bark

In a large bowl, combine the softened butter, peanut butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar. It’s ready when it forms a sticky dough.  Roll into 3/4″ balls and refrigerate one hour, or longer.  Remove refrigerated balls and heat chocolate almond bark according to package instructions.  Roll Buckeye Balls in chocolate and place on waxed paper to cool.
