Buckeyes Candy Recipe

7 cups sifted confectioners sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 16 or 18 ounce jar creamy peanut butter
2 cups semisweet chocolate morsels
1 tablespoon shortening

Process butter and peanut butter in a food processor until thoroughly blended. Add 3 cups powdered sugar and process until smooth. Gradually add remaining powdered sugar in two batches, processing after each addition until mixture pulls away from sides and is no longer crumbly. Shape mixture into 1 inch balls. Cover and chill thoroughly. Combine chocolate morsels and shortening and melt over low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove pan from heat. Use a wooden pick to dip each ball in chocolate, coating about three fourths of ball to resemble a buckeye. Place on wax paper. Carefully smooth over wooden pick holes. Let candies stand until chocolate hardens. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
