White Chocolate Buckeyes

Your favorite peanut butter truffles had a costume change and are now dipped in white chocolate. 

White Chocolate Buckeyes 1

Originally I had the grand plan of drawing little red lines on these to make them look like actual eyeballs in the spirit of Halloween. But I decided I didn’t have time to do that to every single one soooo here we are with regular white chocolate buckeyes! Maybe next year ;-). These are exactly the same as the buckeyes candies I posted long ago, but they are dipped in white chocolate instead. Mind blowing I know.

Anywho, I thought these were the right thing to make after losing to Penn State last week. That terrible awful game I had to witness alongside of my Penn State alum boyfriend. Yea, that was fun – not. But this week is a new week and we play Northwestern. Despite my love for purple, as always I will be cheering on the scarlet and gray from inside the shoe!

Three years ago: Sweet and Sour Chicken

Four years ago: Scooter’s Spaghetti


Makes a lot


1-1/2 cups PB&Co White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter (regular is fine)

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1 tsp vanilla extract

4 cups sifted confectioner’s sugar (or 3 cups unsifted)

6 oz. white chocolate candy bark

6 oz. white chocolate chips

2 Tbsp shortening



  1. Line two baking sheets with waxed paper; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix peanut butter, butter, and vanilla. Add confectioners’ sugar one cup at a time to reach desired consistency, then use hands to form a smooth stiff dough.
  3. Shape into balls using 2 teaspoons of dough for each ball. Place on prepared pan, insert a wooden toothpick, and place in the freezer.
  4. Melt chocolate and shortening together in a metal bowl over a pan of lightly simmering water. Stir occasionally until smooth, and remove from heat.
  5. Remove balls from freezer. Dip into melted chocolate leaving a small circle uncovered at the base of the toothpick. Return to wax paper, chocolate side down. Repeat with remaining balls.
  6. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set. Remove toothpicks and carefully smudge the holes left behind with fingertip.
