I’ve had several people ask me about my buckeye recipe. Okay, so it’s been a total of 2. But I come from a long line of exaggerators/embellishers. So I try to keep up the good work.
Here is the recipe for making a good buckeye.
·         1 16-18 oz jar of peanut butter
·         4 cups of powdered sugar
·         1 12 oz bag of chocolate chips
·         2 sticks of butter, softened
·         ½ cake of paraffin wax

Mix the peanut butter, powdered sugar and butter together. Then refrigerate. In the meantime, melt chocolate chips in a double broiler with the paraffin wax. Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, get your peanut butter mixture out of the refrigerator. Make your little balls of peanut butter and then use a toothpick to poke down through the center of them and dip them in the chocolate. You want to get most of the peanut butter dipped except for a small portion at the top. That’s the eye of the buck. Or the buck of the eye? Let them sit long enough for the chocolate to set and…

Then you eat them!
