Buckeye Recipe for Karan

and anyone else who fancies giving them a go.

BUCKEYES
Printed from COOKS.COM
___________________ ___________________ __
1 1/2 lbs confectioners' sugar
1 16 oz jar crunchy peanut butter
1 cup butter, softened
1 12 oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon Crisco or vegetable oil

In the bowl of a food processor, add 1/2 the quantity of the butter, sugar, peanut butter. Process until well combined.
Shape into 1 inch balls. Refrigerate. Repeat this process with remaining ingredients.
In the top of a double boiler, combine Crisco or vegetable oil and chocolate, simmering and stirring until chocolate has melted. (If you don't have a double boiler, melt it in a small metal bowl over boiling water in a saucepan; alternatively, use a microwave). When melting chocolate, be careful not to allow any moisture to touch it (or steam), as this will cause the chocolate to seize and you'll have to start over!
Dip each ball in chocolate until partially coated. Place on wax paper or silicone sheets.
Store, refrigerated, in an airtight container.


I divided the whole recipe by half and was glad I did because it makes millions of the things (ok slight exaggeration)

Thanks Taz! I think I'll half the recipe too : ) Matt won't make these for me or be able to share. He has a nut allergy - more for greedy old me ; )
