How to make Buckeyes

Yummy, yummy, yummy!

Hi there everyone.  Today I am sharing how to make buckeyes.  If you know me at all, you know I LOVE peanut butter and chocolate.

I am a newb at the baking, as you know I stick to basics most of the time.

How to make buckeyes

But this year I have tried for the first time Home made peppermint bark, which was a hit, and now I thought I would try some buckeyes.  I have my Bunco Chrismtas party tonight so my friends are my guinny pigs.

 After chilled, dip in chocolate.

I did all sorts of dips as you can see. Half dipped, whole dipped, barely dipped,

I just had fun dipping.

 Thanks for stopping by today.  

I love the little snowflake cupcake liners and toothpicks I picked up from the dollar tree.
