Peanut Butter Buckeye Balls

Buckeye Balls are an EASY dessert made from peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate for a no-bake candy with only 6 ingredients!

  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 cups powdered sugar , unsifted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , room temperature
  • 1 tbsp shortening
  1. To a stand mixer add the peanut butter, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar and beat it until it forms a stiff dough then then roll the dough into balls made with 2 teaspoons of dough.

  2. Put the balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper then refrigerate for at least an hour before using a microwave safe bowl to melt the chocolate and shortening in 30 second increments until fully melted (mix in between each 30 seconds, for 60-90 seconds total).

  3. Dip the balls almost all the way leaving the eye of the peanut butter ball showing before scraping the fork across the lip of the bowl to remove excess chocolate and using a toothpick to push the buckeye ball onto the parchment paper to harden for at least 30-45 minutes in the refrigerator before eating.
