On the third day of Christmas YoungWifey shared with me, her dark chocolate peanut butter ball recipe, cracked glass candy and her peanut butter fudge recipe…

This recipe is adapted from another student of mine’s recipe. Of course with Peanut Butter in the title, this is another one of Hubster’s favorites. Some people call these Buckeyes, but I’m not sure how different they are.

Ingredients: 1 1/2 lbs. confectioner’s sugar, 16 oz. of peanut butter, 1 c. butter, 12 oz. dark choc. chips, 1 Tbs. vegetable oil

Directions: You might have to do two batches for this first part. In a food processor, mix together peanut butter, butter and the sugar until well combined. Shape mixture into 1″ balls. Refrigerate to harden. In a double boiler, combine chocolate and oil, stirring until melted. Using a toothpick, dip each ball into the chocolate until well covered, place on  wax paper lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

*You can also make this with milk chocolate, I just prefer dark.
