This was a new Christmas cookie that I tried and boy are they oh so sweet! I made them a little bigger then I think that they were supposed to be and I can tell why they only needed to be about a 1/2 inch - too much and they are just a little too sweet! So, hopefully you are a better ball roller then me when you make these! :) I ended up getting almost 4 dozen and you are supposed to get 5 dozen...
(recipe found at www.smuckers.com)
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 package semi sweet chocolate chips or chocolate coating
Melt chocolate. Mix peanut butter, sugar, margarine and vanilla until semi dry and crumbly. Shape into 1/2 inch balls. Dip balls into melted choclate, leaving the top of the ball uncovered to resemble a buckeye. Place balls on wax paper lined baking pan. Refrigerate until set.
