Peanut butter balls aka Buckeye Balls

We indulge ourselves with this delicious recipe made in the USA: peanut butter buckeyes! These are small balls of peanut butter covered with a thin layer of chocolate. They take their name from the name of the fruit of the chestnut trees in Old English, because they look a bit the same.

* List of ingredients :

° 230 g. icing sugar
° 200 g. smooth, unsweetened peanut butter
° 4 tbsp. melted butter
° the beans of 1 vanilla bean (optional)
° 2 pinches of fleur de sel
° 170 g. pastry chocolate

* Preparation steps :


Mix the sugar, peanut butter, melted butter, vanilla and salt in a bowl to obtain a smooth paste. Make small balls of about 4-5 cm. in diameter with the preparation and place them in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.


Melt the chocolate in a double boiler (or if you prefer, you can temper it) then plunge the balls one by one, letting a little peanut butter appear on the top.


Arrange them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper to let the chocolate dry, then enjoy them whenever you want, for me it's with a cup of coffee. Enjoy your meal'
