PEANUT BUTTER BUCKEYES

We made these babies yesterday and they were sooooo yummy!!!  Very simple and fast.  My only complaint is that I think it calls for way too much powdered sugar.  The peanut butter was too sweet for me.  So it depends on how sweet you want your peanut butter to taste.  I think you could cut the amount of powdered sugar in half.  Here is the recipe:


Peanut Butter Buckeyes

1 3/4 C creamy peanut butter
1 C butter, softened
4 1/4 C powdered sugar
2 C chocolate chips
Toothpicks

In a large bowl, cream together peanut butter and butter, until light and creamy.  Add sugar, mix well.  Roll into small balls, place on wax paper and chill for about 1 hr or up to 8 hours.  Melt chocolate chips.  Using toothpicks, spear each ball and dip lower half into chocolate and return to wax paper.  Referigrate to harden and keep stored in the fridge between layers of wax paper.
