I learned to make these when I 13 and have been making them every year since then, I am 52 and they are a family favorite- take some work and time but are worth the tradition 5 stars

Wow, I had a blast making these. I didn't get 400 buckeyes maybe I made them too big. I dipped them in roasted coconut, gramcrackers, and Christmas candy sprinkles. They came out very festive and tasted great. I most certainly will make them again. With the excess chocolate I poured it onto waxpaper and sprinkled it with the remainder of the coconut and ground gramcrakeres. Two delightful gifts in one. Thanks Wendy 5 stars

Would not make this again.
If you feel you really must try these cookies, get a reese's peanut butter cup and forget it. They were messy, a waste of toothpicks, hard to roll, hard to keep on the toothpicks, a waste of time and money. Prepare to be rolling balls for hours too by the way.... 1 star

I've made these for years, too, and everyone always requests them. But instead of paraffin wax, I've always used a few tablespoons of shortening - melt with the chocolate chips. Definitely keeps the chocolate from being so messy. 5 stars

I have made these for years but one year wanted a lighter version so I used 1 cup of plain or vanilla yogurt & 1 stick of butter instead of all the butter they were creamer and a little softer but everyone loved them. 5 stars

I make cookies every Christmas and thought I would give these a try seeing that my husband is from Ohio. I found that the peanutbutter was too soft to roll and even after I froze them I still couldnt roll them without a mess. I did not want to waste all the peanutbutter so I made them into squares. 2 stars

This is a great recipe. For a little change of pace, you can roll the buckeyes in other ingredients immediately after the chocolate dipping. (Be sure to use the wax; it helps the added ingredient adhere. I roll mine in coconut flakes, crushed pecans, and candy sprinkles for a more decorative (and more tasteful) flair! 5 stars

I love these my cousin started me on them many years ago and we have to make them every Christmas. As far as not using the wax the balls fall apart to easy without it. 5 stars
