    Miss_Amy's Note:

    I was unaware these were called 'buckeyes' until some midwestern friends informed me of their correct name. They were sort of an ad-lib dessert for a vegan/gluten-free catering job. I kept the recipe when I saw how fast they disappeared.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 48



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cream peanut butter and powdered sugar in bowl of an electric mixer. Add rice cereal and mix until incorporated. (I find that using a whisk attachment, as opposed to the paddle attachment, crushes up the cereal a bit more effectively and results in a better texture.).
    2. 2
      Using a meatballer or a spoon, scoop out bits of the mixture and roll into 3/4" balls. Cover either two dinner plates or a cookie sheet in parchment and space the balls about 1" apart. Place in freezer for 15 minute to harden.
    3. 3
      Melt chocolate in a double-boiler over the stove or on 50% power in your microwave for about 2 minutes, stopping to stir once. Remove peanut butter balls from freezer. Poke one with a toothpick and swirl about 3/4 of the way up the sides in the chocolate mixture. Return it to the parchment and repeat the process for the remaining candies.
    4. 4
      Return tray of completed buckeyes to the freezer for 20 minutes, or until chocolate has hardened. Keep in freezer or refrigerator until serving. If frozen, allow to thaw 5 minutes before serving.
