A favorite of Ohioans, these look like the real thing and are very simple to make. Great for chocolate/peanut butter lovers!
- 1 lb butter
- 2 lbs peanut butter
- 3 lbs powdered sugar
- 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 12 ounces milk chocolate chips
- 2 ounces paraffin wax
- Combine first three ingredients and form into little balls about the size of quarters.
- Mixture will be dry.
- Melt chocolate chips and wax in microwave or double broiler.
- With a toothpick, dip peanut butter balls in chocolate to coat, leaving top exposed like a Buckeye.
- Place onto wax paper to cool.
- Cover toothpick holes when chocolate has dried.
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.
Didn't give it a star rating yet because I am not finished but I don't know how anybody gets 3 pounds of sugar stirred up in this I only used two and like to never got it stirred up.
