I usually make buckeyes every Christmas... they are pretty much expected by several family members. Getting that 'eye' perfect and on top is harder than it seems, otherwise, buckeyes are pretty easy to make. After the success with Chubby Hubby Truffles, I made the buckeye 'batter' and three different 'mix-ins' (a-la-Coldstone Creamery); pretzel (aka Chubby Hubby), pretzel and caramel (aka Take 5), and crushed graham cracker. I think my favorite is the graham cracker mix-in, but everyone had their own favorite.
2 cups creamy peanut butter
.5 cup powdered sugar
.25 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. Mix ingredients together, including desired mix-ins.
2. Roll into balls and put in freezer while melting chocolate in double boiler.
3. Dip cold peanut butter balls into chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off and place on wax paper (optional: add sprinkles or drizzle topping). Refrigerate for 5 minutes to let chocolate set.
