- 2 cups creamy peanut butter, (not all-natural)
- 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, softened

Directions, Reviews, Nutrition
BEAT peanut butter and butter in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in powdered sugar until mixture holds together and is moistened. Shape into 1-inch balls; place on prepared baking sheets. Freeze for 1 hour.
MELT morsels and shortening in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted.
DIP peanut butter centers into melted chocolate using a toothpick, leaving a small portion of the center uncovered. Shake off excess chocolate and scrape bottom of candy on side of bowl. Return to baking sheets; refrigerate until chocolate is set. Store in covered container in refrigerator.

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
I've made candy for years and it has always been a production so this year I tried some new recipes to see if it was as good as the old fashion candy and it was and a lot easier to make.
I made these one time so far and have yet to run into a family member who hasn't asked for them again! The whole family will enjoy!
I can usually make anything from peanut brittle to fudge and well these buckeyes just didnt turn out for me. I mean people ate them but they didn't taste like they should of. Maybe it was me? I follwed everything so...Next year I am going with a different recipe!
Easy and Delicious!
I am not a very good cook/baker, but this was such an easy recipe and everyone loved them! Myself included
quick and easy
My whole family loves these candies. I love how quick and easy they are to make for bake sales too!
