Peanut Butter “Buckeyes”

How about an easy recipe that your family and friends will love?   Of course, you don’t have to wait until the Holidays to make any cookies or candies, but at a time when you are surrounded by family and friends its great to have a variety of “yummies”.  If you love peanut butter and chocolate, this is the recipe for you! This recipe represents the Ohio Buckeye.  It makes about 3 dozen.

Melt in a pan over low heat:
1/2 cup Butter
2 cups Peanut ButterCombine in a large bowl:

5 cups Rice Cereal
1 cup Powdered SugarPour the melted butters over the dry mixture.  Stir to coat evenly.  Refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight.  Form the peanut butter mixture into small balls, pressing firmly together and shaping with your hands.   Place on parchment lined baking sheets.  Melt 1 package of your favorite Chocolate.  Dip COLD balls into the chocolate and place on parchment to set the chocolate. These freeze very well – not that you’ll be able to keep them there.  Enjoy!
