Day 1 Of Rosie's Christmas Baking - Buckeyes.

One of the favorite treats my Christmas Goodies recipients like is the Buckeye.
Buckeyes 1 1/2 pounds powdered sugar 16 ounces peanut butter 1 cup butter, softened 12 ounces semisweet chocolate morsels 1 TB shortening I usually use store brands for most things, but in the case of semisweet chocolate, the Food Lion brand is NOT anything like Hershey's. Use Hershey's or better. Process sugar, peanut butter, and butter until well mixed. Cover and chill. Shape into small balls. Chill. Combine chocolate and shortening, melt. Dip each ball in chocolate. Place on wax paper and refrigerate.
This is the powdered sugar, peanut butter, and butter, mixed.
My little peanut butter balls are ready for the chocolate bath.
Now, tell me you don't want to pop that in your mouth.

I have never heard of, or eaten, a buckeye. They look delicious and like something all of my family would love. Plan to give this one as well as the nut and cranberry bark a try. Thanks!!
