creamy peanut butter
finely ground graham cracker crumbs
semisweet chocolate chips
This is the ONLY Buckeye recipe I use because not only does it taste better with the graham crackers, it also doesn't use tons of confectioner's sugar. Once you've tried this version, you will wonder how you ever made them with all that sugar! I double this recipe and make smaller balls as they get heavy on the toothpick when you dip/coat them in the semi-sweet melted chips. This recipe has become a family tradition with my own family and now my extended family. I can't show up for the big Christmas gathering without it!
Not a good Buckeye recipe as far as ease of chocolate covering.Followed the recipe to the letter. Buckeyes would not release from fork nor would they stay on a toothpick when attempting to dip in chocolate. Cannot present these in public as is. Will go back to my old recipe.
Delicious! I like this Buckeye recipe because it has the graham crumbs in it. Gives them a bit more body and firmness. Try them!
My friends beg me to make this!! Delicous & very easy!! A real hit!
Good & easy. I used a 1/2 T. measuring spoon to make the balls & did not get 36. It only took 1 bag of chocolate & that was enough to coat all but 2. They are good uncoated too! I would make these again.
A coworker shared this recipe with me almost 20 years ago and I lost it. I am so glad to find it here! The graham crumbs give the pb filling a Reese's like texture. This recipe is so much better than the pb and confectioners sugar alone. For those who had difficulty dipping, you can purchase a dipping loop in the candy section of your craft store, it makes dipping easy.
Spectacular! Great for entertaining as they add a definate gloss to the holiday table. These are so much better with the graham cracker crumbs versus without. Crunchy and sweet. It can get tricky if the chocolate gets too hot, as the peanut butter can start to melt and get into the chocolate sauce. If this starts to happen, remove the chocolate from the double boiler for a half a minute or so and replace. They are addicting!
Very tasty, lots of compliments when brought to parties.
