Nothing Says Christmas Like Buckeyes and a New Website!

{Posted on December 22, 2011}


We’re Baaaack!

Have you missed us?  We’ve been working on some exciting new things…yep, one of which is our new site! Ta-da! You like??  Just in time for Christmas, thanks Santa!

Also in time for Christmas I bring to you…(Little Drummer Boy drum roll please) BUCKEYES!

Thanks to my friend Penny, these peanut-butter-chocolately nuggets are definitely a holiday tradition at our house and guaranteed to be in yours too!

 

Buckeyes

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup powdered sugar

2 Tbs butter, room temperature

1 1/2 cups Rice Krispy cereal

1/2 # melted milk chocolate morsels

Mix the peanut butter, sugar and butter together well with a mixer. By hand, gently mix in the cereal. With buttered hands, roll 1 tsp of the peanut butter mixture into half-dollar sized balls and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. (You may have to cool the mixture in the frig if it gets too soft/warm to ball.) Place sheet of balls in frig to keep cool until chocolate is ready for dipping.

Melt chocolate in a deep bowl in the microwave, being careful not to burn. (I usually do 25 seconds at a time and stir in between until melted.)

Once melted, dip each ball into the chocolate to coat evenly. With a fork remove the coated ball and let excess chocolate drip off and place back on the baking sheet to harden.

Let me tell you, these babies are heaven!  I usually make 6 times this recipe and give as gifts during the holidays.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas to you all!
