See ingredients, but does contain dairy, peanuts, and sugar.
1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup room temperature butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 16 oz. pkg. conf.(powdered) sugar
Dipping milk chocolate (I use the discs-available at candy stores, but grocery stores carry bricks too)
Directions (Steps, Oven Temperature, Time per Step)
In a bowl mix peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and conf. sugar. With hands form a smooth dough, it will be stiff.
Shape into little balls-place on wax paper on a cookie sheet.
Use a toothpick to pierce each ball one at a time and partially dip into chocolate, leaving the top with a small circle of peanut butter showing (3/4 covered in chocolate). This is the "Buckeye nut" (or look alike).
Place all of the dough mix dipped in chocolate onto wax paper.
Chilling will help the chocolate harden faster, but with dipping chocolate it will still harden, but it does take a little longer than without chilling.
Suggested Pairings (Optional)
Dinner first is recommend….. but also optional!
Recipe’s Story: Anecdote (Three to Five Sentences)
Ever since I can remember, my family has been the biggest Michigan Wolverine fans as myself, my sister, my grandma and grandpa all went to U of M. Our biggest rivals are the Ohio State Buckeyes. Although I will root for any of their sports teams, I will admit they do share a name with one of my all-time favorite deserts. If you like Reese’s, these are much better AND cheaper!
