Recipe by Milk and Cookies

I've been having a craving for peanut butter and chocolate thought I'd try these. This was a recipe I found in BH&G magazine "Christmas Cookies (1998)" I like this recipe because of the vanilla and the fact it contains no rice crispies and no wax. 2 1/2 cups of chocolate chips is close to 16 ounces. After dipping the buckeyes I put the rest of the chocolate on a silpat and sprinkled some almonds on top, no point wasting good chocolate. I enjoyed them very much, so did my son.
