sis.cooper's buckeye balls
We had the sister missionaries over for dinner on Sunday and served buckeye brownies for dessert because Sis. Cooper is from Ohio. She mentioned that she'd planned to make buckeye balls the next day. We didn't expect them to share them with us! I love these gals- they're great. Sis. Cooper's companion is Sis. Marble and she is from Arizona so I asked her what I could make for her. She recommended chips and salsa and shared her salsa recipe with me. We'll be trying it soon!
sis. cooper's buckeye balls (Sis. Cooper from Ohio)
1/4 pound butter or margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 2/3 cup confectioner's sugar
Combine the butter or margarine, peanut butter and confectioner's sugar. Roll into balls. Refrigerate for 5 minutes.
Melt almond bark on the stove.
Poke a toothpick into the peanut butter balls. Dip each ball into the melted almond bark.
Place on a sheet of wax paper to dry.
What Sis. Cooper says- she tripled the recipe and made 62 buckeyes so each batch makes about 20. She new this recipe off the top of her head! That's a buckeye for you.
