Here it goes..and sorry about the pictures, you know, my skills at the camera are um, GREAT!
1/4 cup(2 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups smooth peanut butter
1 cup graham cracker crumbs (use your homemade ones if you have any left!)
Salt (just a pinch)
3 cups powder sugar
10 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
12 ounces chocolate
In a mixer, combine cream cheese and peanut butter, and blend until smooth, add the graham cracker crumbs and mix until combined. Add the sugar and butter, slowly mix until the sugar is well incorporated into the dough and then turn the speed on your mixer up and mix. The dough will be sturdy and ready to roll into balls.
this is what your dough will look like:
roll into balls. I just used my hands..that were washed, don't worry!
next, you want to melt your chocolate, I used a double broiler..(pot of simmering water, place your heatproof bowl on top of the pot and stir your chocolate until it is all melted and smooth)
dip your peanut butter balls into the chocolate. I found that using a fork to shake off the excess chocolate work great. In the smitten kitchen recipe, she left part of the peanut butter showing..thus the eyes..but I wanted these to be covered! More chocolate please!
let the chocolate set about 30 minutes in the fridge or freezer. And ta-da! Buckeyes. You will need to keep these chilled, but seriously, they won't last very long so I wouldn't worry about it too much! :)
