    Karen=^..^='s Note:

    I make about 30 varieties of cookies and candies during the holidays and these are the most requested. They are fairly easy and delicious. I serve them on a tray in miniature muffin liners. I have tried many different buckeye recipes, but this one, given to me years ago, is the best one I have used. ADDED 12/17/06: Instead of chips and paraffin wax, this year I used chocolate bark coating and it worked really well. You will need about Five - 2 oz. blocks of bark.

      I made these to use for Christmas and they are delicious. I was just going to buy them but not at 7.99 for 6. They are very easy to make. I didn't have any parrafin on hand so I just used a little bit of shortening and they turned out great. Thanks for the recipe.

      My daughter wanted to make Buckeyes for a school book report - these were easy and were the best buckeyes EVER. T

      I just want to add a note about using paraffin in any recipe. I use it when I make these yummies too but please be careful if you are grating over the stove, etc. Paraffin is flammable. I've never had any trouble but just be aware and be careful.
