Every year my grandma made what we called "Peanut Butter Balls". She never went by a recipe and they always turned out perfect!
I needed 10 dozen cookies for a library cookie sale and ended up using an old recipe for chocolate covered peanut butter balls! Easy enough for kids to help (make the balls) and really good!
I made these over Christmas to top off dessert trays. Everyone went crazy over them! Remarks like I can't eat just one. They are very easy and taste better than a Reese cup.
Creamy, delicious and easy to make! I forgot how good and easy these are until i got the recipe out and made them for Thanksgiving. Everyone loved them and they disappeared fast!
This a very simple recipe we make every year and is great for kids to help with around the holidays!
This is a favorite of my son in-law! Very good holiday candy!

Peanut Butter Buckeye Recipe:
1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
4 ounces plus 3 tablespoons of softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 to 4 cups confectioners sugar (about 1 pound)
1/2 cup very finely ground graham cracker crumbs
Chocolate for Coating
With a wooden spoon or large mixer with a paddle beat peanut butter and vanilla until smooth. Slowly stir or beat in confectioner's sugar and graham cracker crumbs. Mixture will be dry, but will hold together when shaped into balls.
Shape mixture into 1-inch balls: place on waxed paper lined cookie sheet and chill in freezer or until firm. (makes about 5 dozen candies)
I have an old recipe using graham cracker crumbs, peanut butter, light corn syrup, cinnamon and confectioners sugar. Does this sound like the one you were looking for?
Yes Kathy, I would love to have your recipe. Thanks!

I am trying to make chocolate/white buckeye balls. I am looking for easy recipes. I need help with this. I want to make a Rice Krispie mixture to put inside.
I had these in grade school. The recipe contains: corn flakes, raisins, peanut butter, and I think clear syrup. I am not sure about the syrup. They were rolled up like a ball and I got into a lot of trouble, cause I lost this recipe two times.

I would like a recipe for buckeyes, made with coco instead of chocolate chips or squares. Thanks.

Recipe for Buckeyes. Spear peanut butter ball with a toothpick and dip about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way into the melted chocolate chip mixture, leaving about a 3/4 inch circle of tan.
