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).
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.
