When we moved to Ohio, we were introduced to the Buckeye. Not only is Ohio obsessed with Buckeye football, they have morphed that obsession into the incredibly delectable chocolate-covered peanut butter ball of the same name. Every Christmas, women all over the state make these goodies. We felt obliged to partake.


6 c sifted confectioner's sugar
1 c butter, softened
1/2 t vanilla
1/2 c peanut butter
4 c chocolate chips


In large bowl, mix together peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and sugar. The dough will look dry. Roll into 1" ball and place on wax paper lined cookie sheet.
Press toothpick into center of each ball. Chill in freezer till firm, about 30 minutes. Melt chocolate chips in double boiler or in bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until smooth. Dip frozen peanut butter balls in chocolate holding onto toothpick. Leave small portion of peanut butter showing at top for 'buckeye look.' Put back on cookie sheet and refrigerate until serving.
