Ok gals, I promised the buckeyes too and I think Tracie said she was keeping the exchange going through today, stop by her blog and see if there is anything new!
1-1/3 stick margarine melted
12 ounce jar chunky peanut butter
1 box powder sugar
12 oz chocolate chips
¼ bar paraffin wax, (available in the canning section at the grocery store)
Combine the melted margarine, peanut butter and powder sugar stir until smooth. Roll in to a big ball cover and chill in refrigerator over night. Roll the dough into little balls about a tablespoon or smaller if you like. Keep them cool in the fridge.
Melt 12 oz. Of chocolate chips with the ¼ bar of paraffin wax until smooth and mixed together (I use my electric fondue pot to melt the wax & chips) Dip the dough in the chocolate with a toothpick or skewer leaving a portion of the dough showing (looks like a buckeye). Put on a cookie sheet to cool until the chocolate is set.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator, will keep for several weeks.
** The wax may sound kind of weird, but it makes the chocolate hard but does affect the taste of the candy and yes it is safe to eat!
