Do you love those little balls of peanut butter and chocolate they call buckeyes? Well me to. The only problem is trying to find enough time to get it all done. The presents wrapped, the tree and house decorated, and all the goodies baked. That's why when I see an opportunity to save some time I take it. With this Buckeye bark the same chocolate peanut butter taste is present with out all the time it takes to roll up all those little balls
Buckeye bark recipeYields 9 x 13-inch pan
1 stick unsalted butter
1 pound creamy peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 pounds semisweet morsels or chocolate candy coating
Line a 9 x 13-inch pan with parchment paper and set aside until ready to use. Melt butter and add to a bowl of an electric stand mixer. Add in peanut butter and mix to combine. Slowly incorporate powdered sugar until everything is combined and you get a thick peanut butter mixture. It will remind you of really soft fudge and should hold together if rolled into a ball. Melt 1-1/2 pounds of chocolate and spread into the bottom of the parchment-lined pan. Let cool and harden and then press peanut butter butter mixture evenly on top of the chocolate. Melt remaining chocolate, spread onto peanut butter, let harden, then cut into squares and enjoy!
