Candy Buckeyes

Round up some helpers...(two of our teenage girls)



Gather up all your supplies...



Mix it up...with your hands....

Melt your chocolate...



Make sure you have all you mixture into nice round balls...using a toothpick dunk each one into the chocolate until there is just a small amount not covered.



This is my Mothers recipe...
3 Lbs. powered sugar
2 lbs. peanut butter
1 lb. margarine (room temperature)

Mix with hands till creamy and form into balls...chill.

Mix in double boiler 1 1/2 large hershey bars and I slab of parafin.

It is just that simple...a little time consuming but simple.
Mine are now in the freezer just waiting for the Holidays to begin. What a wonderful thought! Be Blessed. Dianntha

That looks so good but its going to head straight for the hips!!! Mind you, is there anything that does not head straight for a woman's hips? You one live once right, so it might as well be dangerously!! : )))

Sounds a sweet recipe! I seem to be wanting chocolate all the time these past few days! I blame the season! What is it that is added to the chocolate is it like a solid white fat?

Happy Halloween
