Step 1

    Mix margarine, peanut butter, and sugar. Shape into small balls and place on wax paper. Put a toothpick into the top of each ball.

Step 2

    Chill the peanut balls in the freezer until firm, about 30 minutes. They must be chilled when you dip them in chocolate or it won’t set right.

Step 3

    Next, melt chocolate in a double broiler or a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until smooth.

Step 4

    Holding onto the toothpick, dip the balls in the chocolate. Leave a small portion of peanut butter showing at the top to make them look like Buckeyes. Tap off excess chocolate.

Step 5

    You can let the chocolate harden and dip twice if you want a thicker layer. Tip: If the chocolate in the double broiler starts to harden, you can melt it again.

Step 6

    Place the chocolate-dipped balls on the parchment-lined cookie sheet. Tip: Use the toothpick to clean up the base of the ball so it doesn’t pool chocolate.

Step 7

    Remove the toothpicks. Refrigerate until serving. Don’t let the balls touch each other until after the chocolate has hardened.


Note - CAUTION the heated mixture and cooking pans will be super HOT, please take care.
