1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup butter
1/8 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
In a large bowl, mix the peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and sugar. The dough will look dry. Roll into one-inch balls and place on a waxed paper-line plate or cookie sheet. Chill in the freezer until firm, about 30 minutes. While the dough is chilling, dump your chocolate chips into your slow cooker and cover and cook on HIGH. After the dough is firm, dip the balls into the chocolate and coat entirely, except for the very top. Put back on cookie sheet and refrigerate until serving. Makes 10 servings.
For those of you unfamiliar with what a buckeye is here is a picture:
A buckeye is an inedible nutlike seed of the horse chestnut. However, the buckeyes I made are very edible and very tasty. In our household we are huge fans of The Ohio State University Buckeyes...so naturally this time of year (bowl season) we usually make these special treats. They are very sweet and very rich, like candy. I love them so much I had to give them away so I didn't eat them all by myself. I am pretty sure I would have...in one sitting. 4 stars
