"The term Buckeye Balls is code for delicious chocolate, peanut butter candy goodies." ~ Southern Living magazine
Beware-- slightly addicting:) :)
• 1 (16-ounce) jar creamy peanut butter
• 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
• 1 1/2 (16-ounce) packages powdered sugar
• 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate morsels
• 2 tablespoons shortening
Beat peanut butter and butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until blended.
Shape into 1-inch balls; chill 10 minutes or until firm.
Microwave chocolate and shortening in a 2-quart glass bowl at HIGH 1 1/2 minutes or until melted, stirring twice.
Dip each ball in chocolate mixture until partially coated; place on wax paper to harden. Store in an airtight container.
