Weekly Recipe

Since it's "baking season" I thought I'd share one of my husband's favorites.  I believe they're called "Buckeyes" but since this is a Michigan house, we just stick with "peanut butter balls".  Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Balls

2 sticks butter or margarine, softened
1 lb peanut butter
1 ½ lb powdered sugar
1 ½ tbsp vanilla extract
1 pkg. chocolate chips
½ block paraffin wax

In a large bowl, cream peanut butter and butter/margarine together. Slowly beat in the powdered sugar and vanilla, mix well. Shape dough into small balls and set aside. In a double boiler combine chocolate chips and paraffin wax and melt together. Using a toothpick dip peanut butter balls into chocolate mixture. Lay out on wax paper and let cool. Refrigerate.
