This buckeye peanut butter balls recipe by Mel Lockcuff on YouTube is an easy dessert recipe to make for the holidays. It’s a great addition to add to an assortment tray or cookie tin for gifting. I think adding a few of these gives a nice variety to the batch of sweets. They’re super rich so it’s easy to be satisfied with a couple of these in one sitting. This is a no-bake recipe that makes holiday baking quick and easy. If you like chocolate peanut butter, these are the perfect desserts with only 4 ingredients. I love the idea of sticking the toothpicks into each ball because it makes it easier to dip them in chocolate.


  • 3 tablespoons salted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 10 ounces dark chocolate melting wafers


First, in a small mixing bowl, mix up the first 3 ingredients. Then, take the peanut butter mixture and roll it into the shape of a ball, and place it on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
