"Stir and Season" Saturday
Goodness, I think it's been almost 17 years when I first came to Ohio for college and tried my first "buckeye". A truly yummy delight! It is peanut butter with chocolate...who could not like that combination???
Today, I am sharing with you my Buckeye Bars...they are so yummy...you will have to give them away or may EAT them all yourself!
1 stick of butter, softened
3/4 cup crunch peanut butter
22 Nilla wafers, crushed(3/4 cup it should make)
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tub of 8oz cool whip topping (do not thaw)
3 squares of Baker's semi sweet chocolate
Line 8 inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil over the sides. Beat butter and peanut butter till blended; add wafer crumbs; mix well; Gradually add sugar, mixing well. Press onto bottom of pan.
Microwave frozen cool whip and chocolate in bowl on high for one minute; stir; Microwave 13-30 seconds more till chocolate is melted; stir to blend; Pour over peanut butter layer; spread to cover peanut butter layer.
Refrigerate 2 hours. Use foil handles to lift dessert from pan before cutting! Enjoy!
