Buckeyes

If you are on FACEBOOK and havent been getting my posts in your news feed go to FACEBOOK and like or comment on any of my posts. FACEBOOK now requires interaction to recieve updates.

Recently, The Woman’s Club at St Pius X made buckeyes for our annual Christmas Bazaar. So I bought a few bags after we made them to get a few photographs.

Then of course, I had to test one of the Buckeyes when I was done with my photo shoot. I had to check and make sure they tasted good. You know it is all that quality assurance stuff we need to be up on. Its a dirty job, but someone has to do it.
Well, one Buckeye led to three Buckeyes and before I knew it, they were all gone……
Bummer!

Oh well, now I guess I will have to make more. Now we all can make them because here is the recipe.
Peanut butter and chocolate, could it get any better than this?

Buckeyes

1  cup peanut butter
2 sticks butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
5 cups confectioners sugar
Dark dipping chocolate
In a mixing bowl combine peanut butter, butter vanilla and confectioners sugar.
Roll into 1 inch balls  give or take and place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.

Heat up the dipping chocolate.

Using a toothpick or wooden skewer, dip the balls in the chocolate leaving a little dot.

Here is the finished product. Now all we have to do is bag them.

Peace be with you,
Veronica

    This post reminds me of the ‘real’ buck eyes I picked up on my way home from grade school. It was fun to see the buckeyes you made. Thanks.
