This is aa traditional as you get using Creamy Jif Peanut Butter, confectioner’s sugar, vanilla, butter, and plenty of chocolate!
We all have our favorites in the type of chocolate that is best for buckeyes. I like milk chocolate and semi-sweet best but my sister swears by white chocolate. No matter which you choose, serving Peanut Butter Buckeyes at any holiday party is well received. They make delicious gifts too.
Make it Gluten-Free! This recipe can easily be gluten-free if you confirm that the confectionery sugar you purchase uses a cornstarch or tapioca starch. Double check your chocolate chips too, usually Hershey’s and Nestle brands are fine.
