Peanut Butter Buckeyes
An easy Peanut Butter Buckeyes recipe. While popular in Ohio, The Buckeye State, anyone can get excited about peanut butter balls dipped in melted chocolate!
- 1 1/2 ounces white chocolate chips
- 2 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 4 tablespoons butter softened
- 3 cups powdered sugar (12 ounces)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon Salt
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (12 ounces)
Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper. In a small bowl, microwave the white chocolate chips at 50 percent power until melted, stirring occasionally, about 1 minute. Let stand for 5 minutes.
In a stand up mixer fitted with the paddle, beat peanut butter, the melted white chocolate, butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt on medium speed, just until combined, about 1 minute. Roll the dough into 1 1/4 inch balls and place on prepared baking sheet. Place in the freezer until firm, about 30 minutes.
In a medium bowl, microwave the semisweet chocolate chips at 50 percent power until melted, stirring occasionally, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Using a toothpick, dip chilled dough balls into the melted chocolate, leaving the top quarter uncovered. Return the balls to the freezer until the chocolate is set, about 1 hour. Serve.
