Buckeye candy

Buckeyes...with a twist!

I am not patient enough to dip these little peanut butter balls properly, so I just dip the WHOLE thing. Seriously, who DOESN'T need the extra chocolate? In our house, we also like to dip our Buckeyes in vanilla candy coating, for a more subtle flavor!
Buckeye Candy:
- 2 3/4 cups powdered sugar
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 1 package quick melt chocolate or vanilla candy coating
Mix ingredients together large bowl. I like to use my hands to mix, instead of a spoon or mixer. Roll into walnut sized balls. Melt candy coating. You can always use the double broiler method and melt the chocolate on the stove top, but I like the quick easy way.
**FOR TRUE BUCKEYE CANDY: Using a toothpick. dip the balls into the chocolate mixture until almost covered, leaving some of the peanut butter mixture exposed on the top.
**FOR QUICK AND EASY BUCKEYES: Dip the balls in the candy coating, a few at a time. Roll them around until completely covered.
Place dipped buckeyes on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens. Enjoy!!!
