Anywhere else, you might call these peanut-butter balls or something else but, here in Ohio, they're nothing but BUCKEYES!
A favorite holiday sweet, they're easy to make and always a crowd-pleaser. Here's Vickie's recipe...you can find it in our new book, 101 Christmas Recipes.Buckeyes
16-oz. jar creamy peanut butter
1 c. butter, softened
6 c. powdered sugar
12-oz. pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 bar paraffin
Blend together peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar, mixing with your hands. Shape into one-inch balls; chill for at least an hour. Melt together chocolate chips and paraffin over hot water in a double boiler. Use a toothpick to dip each ball in chocolate, leaving a small spot uncovered. Arrange on wax paper-lined baking sheet. Using the tip of a small knife, smooth over hole left by toothpick. Place in cool area or freezer to set. Makes about 5 to 6 dozen.
