Time Out For Buckeye Football and Chocolate!!

In honor of the beginning of the OSU Buckeye's football season, here's a recipe for Buckeyes, those mouth-watering chocolate covered peanut butter balls so near and dear to our hearts. By the way, if anyone figures out a good way to get the toothpick hole out of the top, let me know.

BUCKEYES

2 lbs powdered sugar
3 cups smooth peanut butter
1 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 lb (24 oz) bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 bar edible paraffin wax (optional but helps hold the shape)

Whip first 3 ingredients with mixer and chill for 1 hour. Roll into one inch balls. Set on parchment covered baking sheets and refrigerate while melting chocolate.

Melt chocolate in double boiler (mix in wax if used). Keep warm. Dip balls using a toothpick and leaving one spot uncovered on top. (This makes it a buckeye). Dry on wax paper. Chill in refrigerator.

Buckeyes can be frozen if well wrapped and hidden deeply in freezer where the little morsels can't be seen and stolen.

GO BUCKS!!

Oh, a fellow Buckeye! Go Bucks, indeed! I live in Michigan now, but will never turn away from my Ohio roots.

Thanks for this great post, Karen! Edible buckeyes are YUMMY!
