Dessert: Buckeye Balls

In time for college football season, we bring you Buckeye Balls. My daughter made these for her 5th grade project for the "State Fair" where students represented an assigned state. Her state? Ohio.

4 (16 ounce) jars peanut butter
3 1/2 (16 ounce) packages confectioners' sugar
1 cup butter, melted
3 (12 ounce) packages semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening

1. Blend together the peanut butter, sugar and melted butter. Allow to chill in refrigerator.
2. Roll into 1 inch round balls and return to refrigerator.
3. In a double boiler over medium heat, melt the chocolate and shortening. Whisk together
until smooth.
4. With a toothpick inserted in the balls, dip them into the chocolate so they look like
buckeyes. Place on waxed paper and allow to set in refrigerator.
