This Sunbutter buckeyes recipe is an easy nut-free alternative to the traditional peanut butter treat.


  • 1 16 oz. jar of sunflower butter
  • 1 lb. powdered sugar
  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter
  • 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Soften the butter ahead of time at room temperature.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sunflower butter and softened butter, then mix on low until creamy.
  3. Add in the powdered sugar and mix again until creamy.
  4. Using your hands, roll the dough into medium-sized balls and place onto a lined baking sheet.
  5. Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
  6. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave or a double-boiler.
  7. Remove the balls from the freezer. Then, using a toothpick, dip the balls into the chocolate covering about 3/4 of the ball. Place them back onto the lined baking sheet.
  8. Let sit for 15 minutes before serving.
