We love this recipe. I'm from ohio and have had these all my life. They are the best! I've never used a recipe with wax in it and they always turn out great. 4 stars

This is a great recipe. Makes great sweet chocolate balls. Every year I let my kids help me make these balls. They would make a big mess. I recently moved from Pennsylvania to WI. We are big fans of the balls! Good luck to all of yince' that are going to make the sweet chocolate balls this year. Happy Christmas! 5 stars

This is a very easy reciepe to make!! Everyone loves these... I use half milk chocolate chips and half semi-sweet chips when dipping the buckeyes. I put the balls in the fridge to firm up after rolling them, but work fast on the dipping because the buckeyes will melt in the chocolate if left in to long. I use two spoons for dipping, no toothpick. Drop the ball in the chocolate and move the chocolate around the ball until even, then remove with one spoon, other spoon wipes the extra chocolate off and then drop on baking sheet. Makes for a prettier buckeye with out the toothpick whole... 5 stars

Forgot to mention in last post, the last time I made these, I used the parafin wax. It seemed the wax kept the balls from melting in our fingers too quickly, however the wax dulled the chocolate taste. This time I will use the melting chips or dipping chips. It will be easier for my little guys to help. I also like the idea of using white chocolate and calling them "snowballs." 5 stars

Making Buckeyes is a tradition for me. Every year in the fall, a group of us kids would go to Mrs. Farren's house and spend the day making Buckeyes. It was great fun to make and then eat til' our tummies ached. I look forward to making them with my children now that they are old enough. We moved many times, but I still remain an Ohio State Buckeye Fan. Good Luck to my nephew Brien, a Freshman this year at OSU. 5 stars

I have made this recipe for over 30 years. I always place the balls in the fridge or freezer to get cold before dipping into chocolate and I have changed to milk chocolate chips in stead of using semi sweet. I always use a toothpick to dip them in, never leave them in and after dipping all of the balls I gentley rub the top to cover the hole up. This really is a candy not a cookie. 5 stars

My son is on his second tour of duty in Iraq. I sent him some last time & the troops loved them. I was requested to send enough for his WHOLE platoon this time......42. Everyone loves them. I got this recipe off my step mom over 25 years ago. 5 stars
