Anyone have a recipe for Buckeye Candy you'd like to share. It is fabulous...
I got this recipe from Allrecipes.com
This is pretty much what I do. If I'm in a hurry, I spread the peanut butter mixture in a 13 x 9 pan, then add the melted chocolate on top. The buckeyes are labor intensive, but very, very good! Also, sometimes I have to add more conf. sugar to keep it firm if I have to maintain them at room temp for any length of time. Oh, lastly, if I have parafin flakes on had, I add about a tsp or so. I think butter or crisco will do the same. It makes the chocolate easier to dip into.
I usually keep them in the fridge if eating soon...or store them in the freezer to have on hand whenever I want them!
Good luck! One of my favorites!!
