    Paul's recipe from the "Buckeye Peanut Butter Taste Test" thread
    Of the 8 brands of peanut butter he tested, Smucker's Natural Creamy won the taste test.

    Buckeye Balls

    Adapted from the cookbook These Guys Are Good. The Senior Tour Wives Cookbook.

    1, 16-oz. jar (1 3/4 cups) creamy peanut butter
    1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
    1 1/2 pounds (5 1/4 cups) confectioners' sugar
    2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (may need a little more, so have it on hand)
    2 tablespoons shortening (optional)
    2 tablespoons shredded paraffin (optional)

    Mix peanut butter and butter in a mixing bowl. Blend in the confectioners' sugar gradually. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place balls on wax paper-lined cookie sheets or sheet cake holders and place in refrigerator. Chill until firm. Combine chocolate chips, shortening, and paraffin in a double boiler or 2-quart microwave-safe dish and melt chocolate. Dip the balls into the chocolate mixture quickly using a cocktail fork (preferred) or tooth picks and place on waxed paper. Refrigerate until firm.

    Makes over 100 buckeyes, if using 18-oz .peanut butter and 6 cups sugar.

    Notes: Very easy to make. Better with a brand-name peanut butter, rather than a store brand. Easy to make in a Kitchen Aid mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Cream the peanut butter and softened butter. Add sugar and blend. If the mixture looks like coarse sand, add a little cooking oil (peanut oil, if you have it) until the mixture holds together. Place in refrigerator to firm. Use a little butter or shortening on your hands, too, when you roll mixture into balls, so the mixture doesn't stick as much. Don't worry if the balls are't round with the first shaping; the goal is just to get the balls roughly shaped. Pick up peanut butter for rolling with a tablespoon; this helps get the balls about the same size. Let it chill completely again and roll them quickly to make the balls smooth. If the balls soften while dipping, place that tray back in the refrigerator and dip some from another tray, so the ball doesn't slip off the cocktail fork into the chocolate. If there is some chocolate remaining, re-dip some chilled buckeyes. Don't dip the balls completely in chocolate, to form an "eye" Store in the refrigerator.

    Dee ... thanks for posting the recipe.

    Yes, I made my wife a taste-test of 8 different peanut butters. It was a lot of fun. Friends also took part in the taste test.

    The finals were Smucker's Creamy Natural and Stonewall Kitchen Creamy Natural. My wife favored Smucker's, but it was close. They were "more peanutty."

    Below them were the major brands you think of when someone mentions peanut butter.

    Finally, store brands brought up the rear. Just not peanutty enough.
