Organic Cinnamon Buckeye Balls
- 1 1/2 cups/375 mL smooth peanut butter
- 1 cup/250 mL butter, softened
- 1 tsp/5 mL Watkins All Natural Original Gourmet Baking Vanilla®
- 1 tsp/5 mL Watkins Organic Ground Cinnamon
- 6 cups/1,500 mL confectioners' sugar
- 4 cups/1,000 mL semisweet chocolate chips
Baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter, butter, Watkins All Natural Original Gourmet Baking Vanilla®, Watkins Organic Ground Cinnamon and confectioners' sugar, stirring until well blended.
Roll the peanut butter mixture into 1-inch/2.5-cm balls and place the balls on lined baking sheet. Press a toothpick into the top of each ball and chill in freezer until firm, about 30 minutes.
Note: The toothpick will be used later as the handle for dipping.
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave (about 1 minute). Using the toothpick as a handle, dip each peanut butter ball in chocolate. Leave a small portion of peanut butter showing at the top to make them look like Buckeyes. Place chocolate covered peanut butter balls on parchment and removed the toothpick. Once the peanut butter has softened, you can use a finger or the back of a spoon to smooth over the hole from the toothpick.
Refrigerate, until chocolate is set. Store in refrigerator until eating or gifting.
