If you are from Ohio then you should already know about Buckeyes, if you are not then you are missing out. Think Reese’s cups only better. But I won’t keep you in any more suspense.

These are the ingredients you will need.

1 stick of butter (softened)

1 3/4 cups creamy peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla 

About 1lb powdered sugar

1 package Bark chocolate

Start by mixing together the butter, peanut butter, and vanilla until blended. 

  
Once it is smooth add in the powdered sugar.

  
The end result will be crumbly. Once it is mixed you will want to roll it into small balls.

  
I normally refrigerate them for an hour or two before adding the chocolate.

For the chocolate I follow the instructions on the Bark Chocolate package.

  
You will want the chocolate to be smooth for dipping.

  
Next comes the fun part of making them buckeyes. I use a toothpick in the middle of the peanut butter ball and dip them in the chocolate that way.

   
   
The end results are so tasty and they bring us a little bit of home while living overseas.
