Buckeye Ball Sandwiches

chocolate peanut butter ball sandwichesI’m all about the easy, last minute treats this time of year. Nothing is worse than running out of Christmas cookies and candies. I mean, no cookies? But it’s the holidays! And the holidays can not go on without sugar, you guys!

So, just in case you’ve already eaten all the cookies or stuffed your face full of all the fudge, I have an easy little treat that doesn’t even need to go in the oven. Total win!

Not only do I love a quck and easy treat, I love to save money! Especially when I’m spending most of it on gifts. I used Planters® Peanut Butter to make these Buckey Ball Sandwiches. Lucky me, Target has some great coupons for Kraft products right now. You can save up to $20 on participating Kraft products, only at Target! I was able to snag a coupon for $1 off my Planters® Peanut Butter.

buckeye ball sandwich recipe

Buckeye Balls Sandwiches


1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
60 round butter crackers (such as Ritz)
2 cups milk chocolate chips
2 teaspoons shortening


In the bowl of stand mixer, add the peanut butter, powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, and salt. Beat until well combined.
Scoop out a scant tablespoon worth of mixture and roll into a ball and smash between your hands, similar to how you would make a hamburger patty. Place between two butter crackers. Repeat with remaining peanut butter mixture.
In a microwave safe bowl, heat the chocolate chips and shortening on low in 20 second intervals until melted.
Dip the sandwiches in the chocolate to coat one half of each sandwich. Let harden on a parchment lined baking sheet.
