"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

1 stick softened butter OR margarine
1 3/4 cups (1 18-ounce jar) creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
About 1 pound confectioners' sugar

1 package (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening

Cream butter, peanut butter and vanilla together adding confectioners'
sugar until proper consistency is reached. Roll candy into 1-inch balls
and place on wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Melt chips and shortening
together in top of double boiler. Keep chocolate mixture in double
boiler over low heat while you dip each candy. Using a toothpick, dip
each ball covering about three-fourths of candy (Peanut butter needs to
show for an authentic buckeye). Return candy to sheet to cool. Yield: 8
dozen buckeyes.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
love trying new recipes, but this one has been a family favorite for
as long as anyone can remember! Ohio is called the Buckeye State for the
Buckeye tress which grow here. These peanut butter and chocolate candies
look just like the nuts from that tress--hence the name! I can remember
my grandmother making these as a special holiday treat. The candies are
delicious, and best of all, they're not too messy and are easy to make.
