Peanut Butter Buckeye Balls – A Holiday Treat

This is a recipe I received from my mother in law.  I have tried these treats from many other people and this is by far the best version I have ever tasted.  They are creamy, substantial to eat and absolutely delicious.  This treat is truly one of those treats that I feel like there is no way in the world I would ever have enough willpower to say no.  I might be able to have just one but to say “no” – would never happen.

Ingredients:

(1) 18 ounce jar of peanut butter (we always use Skippy)

2 cups graham cracker crumbs

(2) 12 ounce bags of chocolate chips

2 sticks of butter

(1) 16 ounce box of confectioners sugar

 

Melt your chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a chocolate melting pot.  You may need to add a little shortening to get it to the proper consistency.

In a bowl mix everything else and form it into small balls.  It helps to place the balls in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before dipping in chocolate.  Then dip in chocolate and place on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper.

When the chocolate has hardened the balls are done.

You can also use white chocolate chips – as you see in the photo.
