Game Day Snacks: Dried Chipped Beef Cheeseball/Candy Buckeyes
Posted: September 23, 2008 Filed under: Snacks
Jen at Frugal Upstate is asking for football game day snacks. Saturdays in the fall are Ohio State Football days. We love to watch the Buckeyes play football. They aren’t playing as well as I’d like this season but around here we still say…..Go Bucks! The following snacks are good to have around during the game, in fact, they are traditional in this house!
Dried Chipped Beef Cheeseball
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 small OR 1 large package dried chipped beef, chopped
6 green onions, chopped
1/2 teaspoon Accent® seasoning mix
1/4 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
Combine all ingredients. Form into a ball. Serve with Ritz crackers.
3 lbs. powdered sugar
3 cups peanut butter (2-12 oz jars plain or crunchy—we use plain)
1 lb butter, softened to room temperature
2-12 oz packages chocolate chips
1/4 bar parafin wax
Mix the powdered sugar, peanut butter and butter thoroughly (use a sturdy mixer for this, the dough is very stiff). Roll in balls the size of buckeyes (about 1-2″ diameter). Set aside.
In double boiler, melt the chocolate chips and parafin wax. Using a toothpick to hold onto, dip the peanut butter balls into the chocolate, leaving about 1/4 of the ball uncoated. Set on foil lined tray to set up. This recipe makes a lot of “buckeyes”. Extras can be frozen, in fact they are yummy to eat straight from the freezer, trust me, I KNOW this!
