It is amazing how much I have focused on my “food photography” since I started this blog ten years ago. How is the lighting? Is the food pretty enough? Well, these Beautiful Buckeye Cookies were a fun variation on the Buckeye Bars I normally make and are impressive for gift giving.
You will need:
12 oz creamy peanut butter
1/2 C unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 1/2 C powdered sugar
1 bag of Ghiradelli dark chocolate melting wafers
In a standing mixer, beat peanut butter and butter until creamy and combined.
Stir in vanilla.
Add powdered sugar and beat on low speed until smooth.
Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop dough into your hands and roll into 1 inch balls and place in the freezer for at least 1 hour.
Using a double boiler, melt the dark chocolate melting wafers.
Using a tooth pick, poke the peanut butter balls in the center and carefully pick it up, using the toothpick, dip the peanut butter balls 3/4 of the way into the chocolate.
Carefully shake off any excess chocolate.
Place onto cookie sheet.
Repeat steps with remaining peanut butter balls.
Once dipped, set aside for chocolate to harden.
