6 cups confectioners sugar
4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
A grown-up to help you with the tricky stuff
In a large bowl, mix the peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and confectioners sugar. The dough will look dry. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on a waxed-paper-lined cookie sheet.
Press a toothpick into the top of each ball (to be used later as the handle for dipping), and chill in freezer until firm, about 30 minutes.
Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until smooth.
Dip frozen peanut butter balls in chocolate, holding onto the toothpick.
Leave a small portion of the peanut butter showing at the top to make the cookies look like buckeyes.
Put coated cookies back on the cookie sheet and refrigerate until serving.
