From the Test Kitchen

End your meal on a sweet note with these deliciously rich buckeyes—or chocolate-dipped peanut butter balls—named for their resemblance to the nuts grown on buckeye trees.

Buckeyes with Peanut Butter & Chocolate
Title
  • 2 Tbsps Smooth Peanut Butter Spread
  • 6 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • ¼ cup Tahini
  • ¼ cup Roasted Peanuts
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 oz Salted Butter
step-by-step
instructions
1 Start the buckeyes

Remove the peanut butter spread, tahini, and butter from the refrigerator to soften. Finely chop the peanuts. In a bowl, whisk together the softened peanut butter spread, tahini, and butter and a pinch of salt. Add the powdered sugar; stir to combine. Fold in the chopped peanuts. Working quickly, roll the mixture into 12 equal-sized balls, then transfer to a plate. Freeze 30 minutes to 1 hour, or until chilled and firm.

2 Finish the buckeyes & serve your dish

Once the peanut butter balls are chilled, place the chocolate chips in a small bowl; add a pinch of salt. Working in 30 second increments, microwave on high, stirring between batches, until melted and smooth. Working one at a time, stick a fork (or toothpick) into the center of a chilled peanut butter ball; carefully dip into the melted chocolate, leaving a small circle of peanut butter mixture exposed at the top. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining peanut butter balls and melted chocolate. Refrigerate 30 minutes, or until the chocolate is set (or keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve). Enjoy!
