Recipe type: Desserts
- 2 sticks (1 Cup) Margarine
- 2 Cups Peanut Butter
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 2 pounds of confectioner's sugar
- 1 package 12 semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ¾ bar paraffin
- In a large bowl, mix together the confectioners' sugar, margarine, peanut butter and vanilla. Form into small balls, rolling in the palms of your hands. Using a toothpick, dip each ball into the chocolate-paraffin mixture that has been melted over low heat in top of a double boiler. Leave a little part of the peanut butter uncovered in order to have them look like buckeyes. (Remember, Ohio is The Buckeye State.) Place each one carefully, not touching, onto wax paper until set.
When placing them in layers, place wax paper between them. I was always told to refrigerate them. I never have ... I guess because they never last long enough to worry about it. I make them the week before Christmas and they're gone by the New Year.
