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.
