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!


  1. These are definitely on the list to make. I've always wanted to try making them. I had no idea about the paraffin!

  2. The paraffin seems weird I know. But like I said, the recipe is ancient and there were not any candy melts around then. I only use the wax.

  3. I suppose instead of paraffin, you could use shortening too. Idk, that is just the recipe I have 8-)

  4. I'm making these this weekend with my little guy...can't wait ! Yummy !!
