My husband LOVES Buckeye Balls. I made them one year…and HOURS later…I hoped to never make them again! They took FOREVER and were just a pain to make. I am not even a huge fan of eating them….but I do like to surprise my husband with treats once in a while!
This year I decided to find an easier way to make Buckeyes…that is when I saw this adaption…same great taste…way less hassle!
So, if you are like me and don't want to spend all day making a sweet treat….give this recipe a try!
The only thing I wish I had done differently was to make the chocolate layer a little bit thinner…but they taste great and no one is complaining!!
- 2.5 pounds of almond bark or chocolate candy coating white, dark or milk
- 16 ounces creamy peanut butter
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 stick melted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Melt 1/2 the chocolate or almond bark according to package instructions.
Spread over a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Spread it to about 1/4 inch thickness.
Place cookie sheet in freezer.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl whip together the peanut butter, powdered sugar, butter and vanilla until smooth and creamy.
Take the chocolate layer out of the freezer and spread the peanut butter mixture on top of the frozen chocolate layer.
Place this pan back into the freezer.
While the pan is cooling, melt the remaining chocolate.
Take the pan out of the freezer and spread the remaining melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter layer.
Return pan to the freezer and freeze until set.
Break into small pieces using a butcher knife.
Store in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to serve.
These may not be as pretty as Buckeye Balls, but they are just as tasty and so much easier to make.
