Buckeyes Really Are Edible

In honor of the big game in TWO days...

Buckeye Candy


  • 4 (16 ounce) jars peanut butter
  • 3 1/2 (16 ounce) packages confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 3 (12 ounce) packages semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  1. Blend together the peanut butter, sugar and melted butter. Allow to chill in refrigerator.
  2. Roll into 1 inch round balls and return to refrigerator.
  3. In a double boiler over medium heat, melt the chocolate and shortening. Whisk together until smooth.
  4. With a toothpick inserted in the balls, dip them into the chocolate so they look like buckeyes. Place on waxed paper and allow to set in refrigerator.
Makes 12 dozen
