1 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter 1 Cup Butter, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla extract 6 Cups confectioners’ sugar
4 Cups semisweet chocolate
1. In a large bowl mix together the peanut butter, butter, vanilla and confectioners’ sugar. The dough will look dry. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a wax paper-lined cooike sheet.
2. Press a toothpick into the top of each ball (to be used as a handle for dipping) and chill in freezer for 30 minutes.
3. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler and stir frequently until smooth.
4. Dip frozen peanut butter balls in chocolate. Leave a small portion of peanut butter showing at the top to make them look like Buckeyes. Put back in the refrigerator until time to serve.
