What a great recipe. I have found ways to make this an easier method. I start with the PB mix in the stand mixer and add the butter and vanilla until it's all creamed, then start adding the sugar. I go until it's starting to get hard to mix, then I use my hands to finish. I definitely use 3 and a 1/2, sometimes not quite 4 cups. You need to get used to what the proper amount feels like, rather than measuring it all out. It should feel like stiff play-doh that doesn't crumble. I usually work with the mix divided in half to make my balls, so if I do add too much sugar I can take from the other mix still waiting to be made into balls. Then I freeze the balls on cutting boards covered in wax paper. It's important to get everything flat, which will make things much easier. Then I mix 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips and 1/4 bar of Gulf Wax, melted. I dip all the balls in the chocolate with tooth picks and return to the freezer. After I make sure to smooth over the toothpick holes so they look like real buckeyes. These are amazing! They are requested every Christmas.
