Buckeyes...not Wolverines! Michigan joke!!LOL These are a Midwestern favorite, and my family can just devourer them. Sometimes a little too much!!


BUCKEYES

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter

1 cup butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 cups confectioners’ sugar

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

*3 – 4 cups melting chocolate


INSTRUCTIONS:
1. In the bowl of a mixer, combine peanut butter and butter until smooth. Add confectioners’ sugar, one cup at a time, until well-mixed; then add graham cracker crumbs. Mixture should be dry.
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Form dough into teaspoon-sized balls, and lay on the baking sheet . Press a toothpick into each ball and put baking sheet into freezer for at least 30 minutes.
3. In a double-broiler or a heat-proof bowl over simmering water, melt the melting chocolate.
4. Using the toothpick to hold them, dip frozen peanut butter balls in chocolate. Leave a small portion of peanut butter showing at the top to make them look like Buckeyes. Put back on the cookie sheet, remove toothpick, and refrigerate until serving.
