Peanut Butter Buckeye Balls are a delicious no-bake dessert that require only a few ingredients. This classic treat is great for holiday cookie trays or to bring to parties any time of the year!
Christmas 2018 is done! And I’m feeling slightly relieved about that. This season nearly sank me, but I am still afloat. These Peanut Butter Buckeye Balls were meant to go up on the blog before Christmas, but not everything has gone as planned this month. So instead of recommending that you add them to your Christmas Day menu, I suggest adding them to your New Year’s menu! I love how easy they are to throw together and also that they can easily be dressed up with sprinkles and different types of chocolate. I brought a huge batch of these to Christmas dinner and they were a hit with adults and kids alike. Buckeye Balls are a classic dessert bite that everyone loves!
How long do peanut butter balls last?
Store peanut butter buckeye balls in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. You can also freeze them for up to 6 months.
Can I use chocolate instead of almond bark?
You can definitely use melted chocolate instead of almond bark for this recipe. Dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips would work great! I personally love how firm almond bark gets after it hardens, making for a less messy finger food.
What are some good treats to bring to parties?
Buckeye Balls are the perfect party treat because one batch will feed a ton of people and they are easy to make. There’s also something about finger foods and parties that make a great combo. Here are a few other ideas for great party food:
Notes about Peanut Butter Buckeye Balls:
If the peanut butter mixture is too dry to roll into balls, add 2 tablespoons of softened butter at a time until the mixture is malleable.
Keep these refrigerated right up until you are ready to serve them. Leaving them at room temperature will make them soft, and they are best (and less messy) when firm and chilled.
Go crazy with sprinkles if you’d like, but they are delicious naked, too!
Wishing you and yours an incredible last bit of 2018 and also a fabulous start to the new year! Thanks for being here!
