Buckeyes Candy Recipe


Buckeyes Candy                       
1 16-18 oz jar creamy peanut butter
4 cups powdered sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) soft butter or margarine (leave at room temperature for an hour or two to soften)
1 12 oz bag chocolate chips
1/2 cake paraffin wax (found in canning section, yes, it's safe for eating)

Combine peanut butter, sugar and softened butter/margarine in very large bowl. Mix well, and roll into small balls about 1 inch in diameter. If balls are soft after shaping, refrigerate until hardened a bit.

Melt chocolate and paraffin together in double boiler or in small, deep bowl in the microwave, being careful not to overcook and burn the chocolate.

Use a toothpick or bamboo skewer to dip peanut butter balls in melted chocolate, leaving very top of balls without chocolate to look like a real buckeye. Set buckeyes on cookie sheets lined with waxed paper. Let cool, then remove and place in cookie tins (lined with plastic wrap).
