The second new cookie I am making not baking are buckeyes . These are easy no bake treats.. Taste just like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
This summer the neighbours all raved about them...... I had never heard of these. However when I tasted one realized I know them as peanut butter balls.. it is all in the name!
I like the descriptive Buckeye name better since they do look like that.
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening
Line a baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and confectioners' sugar to form a smooth stiff dough.
Melt shortening and chocolate together in microwave.
Remove balls from refrigerator. Insert a wooden toothpick into a ball, and dip into melted chocolate. Return to wax paper, chocolate side down, and remove toothpick.Smooth hole made with toothpick.
