A lazy one. If you have been hanging out with me for a while, you will know that I like to take short cuts, I am a bit lazy, or maybe in too much of a hurry. Whichever. I was dying for a Buckeye one day, crispy not smooth, when I decided I would make them but then I really didn’t want to roll them all out and dip them in chocolate. Maybe it is more of an instant gratification thing than laziness. So I pressed the peanut butter part in a 9×7 inch glass dish and poured the melted chocolate over top. Done and done. Terrifically fast and easy.
Lazy, Crispy Buckeyes
3 C. Rice Krispies
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 C. peanut butter
1 stick butter
Melt butter and peanut butter in the microwave until smooth, add powdered sugar and fold in cereal. Mix gently until well blended. Press into a 9×7 inch glass dish.
In a medium glass bowl, melt 3 T. butter in the microwave. Stir in 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips until smooth. You may have to zap it for 10 more seconds to get it smooth. Pour over top of peanut butter filling and spread evenly. Let chocolate set and using metal dough scraper or spatula, score one inch pieces all the way through. Place in fridge until hardened. Now it will be easier to remove from pan, one piece at a time. The first piece will get demolished so eat it right away, the rest will be fine. About 63 pieces.
