Buckeyes...soooo yummy-licious!

These yummy little treats are a HUGE hit! They take some time to complete but they are SO worth the effort! I've had special requests from friends, asking me to make sure they get some of these!

1 1/2 cups smooth peanut butter (I prefer Jif)
1 stick butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar (about 1 box)
1 package of almond bark for the outside layer

Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and set aside.
Mix ingredients together. **I've found that if you cream together the peanut butter and butter, then add the vanilla and add the powdered sugar about 1 cup at a time and mix between cups, it's a whole lot easier to get it blended! Refrigerate for about 15 minutes. While it's in the fridge, melt down the almond bark, making sure you continuously stir the chocolate so it doesn't burn. Next you will dip the PB balls into the chocolate (Almond Bark). I drop them into the chocolate pan and use a spoon or spatula to make sure it gets fully covered in chocolate and then I use a toothpick to pull it out. Place the balls on the cookie sheet. Once the cookie sheet is full, place it in the fridge to harden the chocolate.
