Great recipe my mom got at her office! It's an easy way to get the delicious taste of a buckeye with a little less work. I usually keep these in the fridge to keep them from getting too soft or melted.
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 lb confectioners' sugar
- 1 (8 ounce) milk chocolate candy bars
- 1⁄2 cup peanut butter
- Melt the first two ingredients in microwave.
- Add the sugar and mix.
- Pat into 9 x 13" pan.
- Melt chocolate and 1/2 cup peanut butter together.
- Place over bottom layer.
- Refrigerate and cut into squares.
These are just SINFUL and FABULOUS. Instead of the chocolate bar, I just used a 11.5 oz bag of Ghiradelli Milk Chocolate Chips. I used chunky peanut butter in the bottom and then creamy in the top. I took Katzen's suggestion and topped them off with Reese's Pieces (made them very Fall-ish looking for the hayride that I am going to take them to).
How delicious are these!?!?!?! And easy, too! I'm just sorry that I didn't take picture before I sent them to the get-together. I found that the second layer wasn't as dark as was in the photos, so I added an additional 8oz of dark chocolate (there can never be too much chocolate chocolate, right?) and then sprinkled reeces pieces on top to indicate peanuts n the dish. I refrigerated these babies until serviing time and will most definately make them again! Yummy, yummy, yummy, BK!! This is a real winner! Thanks for sharing!
We really enjoyed the flavor of these little treats. Unfortunately, I had a really difficult time getting them out of the pan. I will make again. They were quick and easy to make with ingredients that I always have on hand. These taste similar to the buckeyes I use to make for my son when he was a little boy. Thanks for sharing.
