  • Butter: Unsalted butter works greatest for this recipe. You’ll need it barely softer than room temperature, in order that it simply blends into the peanut butter filling.
  • Vanilla Extract: As at all times, I like to recommend utilizing pure vanilla. Not imitation or synthetic vanilla, which is able to give your buckeye sweet an odd style.
  • Salt: Only a sprint helps steadiness sweetness and improve the opposite flavors on this buckeye recipe.
  • Confectioners’ Sugar: Aka powdered sugar. Remember to sift the powdered sugar earlier than utilizing it so your peanut butter filling is easy and lump free.

  • Espresso Powder: This enhances the darkish chocolate taste, however is an optionally available ingredient. You’ll be able to 100% make this recipe with out utilizing it.
  • Honey Roasted Peanuts: We prime the buckeyes with nuts and it’s completely scrumptious! Not solely do the nuts add crunch and sweetness, however they make the buckeye sweet look further fairly.

Creamy Peanut Butter Filling

  • Tools: You’ll want a handheld electrical mixer or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment to make the peanut butter filling! And make sure your whole components are at room temperature earlier than starting.
  • Recommendation: Once you add the powdered sugar, solely add a 1/2 cup at a time. In any other case the powdered sugar will fly up and make an enormous mess. Sluggish and regular is the best way to go when including powdered sugar.
  • Easy methods to Repair the Peanut Butter Filling: In case your filling seems to be too dry, add in a bit further milk. And in case your filling seems to be to sticky, add in a bit extra powdered sugar. I recommend including in a teaspoon of milk at a time, and a 1/4 cup of powdered sugar at a time. The peanut butter filling ought to seem like play dough.

Dip the Peanut Butter Balls

  • Soften the Darkish Chocolate: I wish to soften the chocolate within the microwave. However for those who don’t have one, you should utilize a doubler boiler or make one.
  • Dip the Buckeye Sweet: As soon as the buckeyes have firmed up within the freezer, they’re able to be dipped in chocolate. Rigorously dip the underside of every ball within the melted chocolate, leaving a small spherical of peanut butter nonetheless seen.
  • Enable Extra Chocolate to Drip: The key to much less messy buckeyes? Let any extra chocolate drip again into the bowl earlier than inserting the buckeyes on the lined baking sheet.
  • Chill till Stable: Place the peanut butter balls to the fridge to set, about 1 hour. This buckeye recipe is greatest served chilled, however will likely be okay at room temperature for a couple of hours.
