Combine peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs and confectioner's sugar in a food processor or standing mixer until well blended.

Roll teaspoonfuls of peanut butter mixture into balls. Refrigerate until ready to dip into chocolate mixture.

Melt chocolate chips and shortening on top of a double boiler until fully melted and well combined. Using a fork or a skewer, dip each peanut butter ball into the chocolate, leaving the very top of the ball exposed. Set on a greased cookie sheet or sheet of waxed paper. Refrigerate until chocolate is firm.

Servings: Makes about 3 dozen

Buckeyes are a favorite candy in Ohio- they look like the nut from a Buckeye tree (Aesculus glabra)- our state tree. I've tried several Buckeye recipes and this is my favorite- the graham cracker crumbs give the peanut butter center a little bit of crunch.
