Need A Pick-Me-Up?? We Tried These Bite-Sized Buckeyes And We’re Hooked!

We have an insatiable sweet tooth that we’re always trying to appease, and this recipe really and truly hit the spot. Peanut butter and chocolate is one of our all-time favorite flavor combinations, so it’s no wonder we love these buckeyes so much, as they’re chocolate-dipped, creamy peanut butter balls that melt in your mouth once you take the first bite. Plus, they’re easy and fun to make!

Need A Pick-Me-Up?? We Tried These Bite-Sized Buckeyes And We're Hooked!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Buckeyes

Yield: approx. 5-6 dozen


  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil or vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl or mixer, beat peanut butter and butter together. Once incorporated, stir in vanilla extract and sea salt.
  3. Gradually add powdered sugar until totally combined. (It’s all right if mixture is dry.)
  4. Divide dough into 4-6 equal pieces and roll each piece into a thin log. Cut logs into 1-inch pieces and roll each small piece into a ball.
  5. Transfer peanut butter balls to baking sheets and place in the freezer until chilled. 20-30 minutes.
  6. In a large microwaveable bowl, combine chocolate chips and canola oil and microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until melted.
  7. Place each peanut butter ball on a spoon and lower into melted chocolate, leaving an exposed circle of peanut butter on top of each ball.
  8. Transfer chocolate-dipped peanut butter balls back to baking sheet and refrigerate until chocolate is set.
    Note: store in an air-tight container, layers separated by wax paper, for up to 3 months.
