                                                buckeyes using this recipe:


                                                2 lb. creamy peanut butter
                                                1 lb. butter
                                                3 lb. confectioners' sugar
                                                2 pkg. (12 oz.) size chocolate chips
                                                1/2 bar paraffin


Line cookie sheet with wax paper. Mix peanut butter, butter and sugar until smooth.
Form small balls approximately 1 to 1 1/2 inches across. Insert toothpicks and set on
cookie sheet. Refrigerate or freeze until firm (about 1 hour). Fill the bottom of a
double boiler with water and set over low heat. Slowly melt chocolate chips and
paraffin together in the top of the double boiler. When melted chocolate is smooth, use
toothpicks to dip cold balls into chocolate until two-thirds covered. Shake or allow
excess chocolate to drip off. Set to dry on cookie sheet, or refrigerate. Remove
toothpick. Cover toothpick hole with leftover chocolate. Paraffin can be omitted, but
candies will need to be refrigerated until chocolate sets. Makes about 166 candies.
