Would make this again.
good recipe. for those who do not have double boilers. buying the chocolate (little disc) from a candy store or bulk chocolate is so much better than the melting of the chips and wax..... and it is so much faster.. I have been doing it that way for 7+ years... and to cover up the tooth pick hole. just put alittle dab of the peanut butter misx and smooth it in.. I usually do this over 2 days (I have little kids). I make the peanut butter mixture and ball them up on lined cookie sheets (with wax paper)then the next day microwave the choclate and there they are. great with a tall glass of milk.. My family and in laws love it. 5 stars

This is a great recipe. I've used it many times!! One thing though....put the ball into the freezer for 30 minutes or so to firm them up before dipping in chocolate. This will keep the on the toothpicks and make them much easier to handle. 5 stars

This is a very good candy and well worth the time I live in Ohio to purchase in a store the cost would be about 12.99 a lb can be made at a fraction of that. How ever when dipping I found that a wooden skewer broke in half works much better then a tooth pick which can be quite tedious. 5 stars

I have been making Buckeyes for the last few years at Christmas time for my employees. This year I tried this recipe WHAT A NIGHTMARE!!! I had to add at least another pound of powder sugar, it was a sloppy mess until then. I would suggest finding a different recipe and making it several times to get 400, of course if you need 400. And yes I measured to the "T". I enjoy making these and my employees ask for them all year long. 1 star

There is secret my mother told me about to keep the little buggers on the toothpick and to keep their shape. You have to freeze the peanut butter balls for 1/2 hour before dipping them. the chocolate will harden fast once dipped and they wont fall off the toothpick! 5 stars

This recipe is very good. I made it without the parafin wax, because I hate that waxy consistency. Like the lady above, I also had trouble dipping, but I figured out that if you put a toothpick in each side and then dip them, they are easier to coat and you won't loose your ball. Place them on the wax paper to cool and remove the toothpick right when you lay it down. The chocolate will ooze down to cover the two holes while it is still warm. Good luck!

PS - This recipe makes a HUGE batch so its fun to get your kids involved in an assembly line type thing!

Would not make this again.
These balls taste like the ones from my childhood however they were really difficult to shape into balls; the toothpicks were impossible to use. To get a decent working consistency, I added more powdered sugar and then refrigerated the peanut butter mixture for half an hour. The chocolate coating seemed heavy on the wax, I'd use less next time 5 stars

They taste wonderful!! I made them with my bestfriends children they had a blast making them. The smaller you make the balls the easier it is to dip in chocolate mixture. It's very difficult getting the last of the powdered sugar in with a hand mixer so we used our hands 3 stars

I made this last year at Christmas, and I'm getting ready to make it again. Instead of chocolate chips and paraffin wax, I used dipping chocolate. This was so much easier! I bought the "Bakers" brand, but you can get it at most grocery stores.
5 stars
