    A favorite of Ohioans, these look like the real thing and are very simple to make. Great for chocolate/peanut butter lovers!

      This recipe makes FAR more than the 24-48 listed. I ended up with 112 and they were not small either! I managed to get all 3 lbs of sugar worked in using my stand mixer with the dough hook attachment and then resorting to kneading in the last 1/2 lb or so. They are delicious!

      These are just as I remember them as a child. Over the years I have made a few different recipes of these. I have to say this is the best one so far. My DH will be so happy when he gets home to see these, he's been begging me to make them. These make a bunch I got 11 dozen. I had plenty of chocolate to dip them. I couldnt get 3 lbs of powdered sugar worked in them. I think I used about 2 1/2 lbs total. I will be putting some in my Christmas baskets. Thanks for a great recipe.
