These made up perfectly for me. Very good. I was surprised to see 25 balls as the amount prepared--I got 100 buckeye sized balls. I did use 12 oz of chocolate candy coating--perfect amount. I stirred 15 small pretzels into the remaining chocolate--a good way to use up that last little chocolate. Also, freezing the balls before dunking in chocolate worked very well (I think I read that hint on another recipe).
I made these for the start of the buckeye season ! Took them to a football party and work they were a HUGE hit !! Thanks for sharing .
I think it comes out to be 3-4 cups of powdered sugar. I also used Almond Bark to coat them and they came out perfect. Thanks alot.
The pnut butter mixture was easy to make but I sure had problems with the dipping into the chocolate. Some wouldn't stay on the toothpick, some broke apart. The chocolate maybe was too thick, it was hard to coat the balls. Don't know what I did wrong. They were not very pretty to look at but they tasted good.
We loved these. The resulting product was very stiff - too much for my cheap blender. I ended up blending the mixture by hand. The end product was decilous but quite crumbly.
absolutely the best. freeze well, too,.
This was my first Christmas making candy. I usually stick with cookies and fudge. However, everyone loved these buckeye's. I got so many raves from them that I may do them again just for fun.
My DH & I made this for a party and it was great! Being from Ohio everyone here loves buckeyes and I always thought they were more work than this! We used the chocolate in the disposable cups and it worked great. Thanks for the simple & yummy recipe.
