hightea57 1 year agoThis is for Amanda~Thank you so much for the tip/hint, I think I will try that this year. I already have request and usually end up making at least 2 batches. Time consuming but well worth the happy smiles when given out! Have a great year! Debbie/
amandajoya 1 year agoI haven't actually made these yet, but my aunt makes about 300 dozen a year for Christmas baskets. She adds rice crispy cereal to the PB mix to add texture and I make myself sick on them every year. Just thought I would added that suggest for others. :)
jenn040977 1 year agoThis buck eye recipe has been in my family for probably 70 years or more we love the Buckeyes we have them every year at Christmas and Thanksgiving
hightea57 1 year agoThank you everyone for your comments! Yes, you are right, i forgot to mention to refridge OR freeze for easier dipping. Adding vanilla is always good, do you think adding maple would make them NON peanut buttery? Will have to try that some time :) TY 2 all of you!
Gret41 1 year agoAbsolutely Delicious! But it makes to many, I was giving them out to friends and family. Everyone loved them! Very easy to make if you refrigerate the balls before you dip them inchocolate
rangerwife 1 year agoMade these by request from my husband who is from Ohio. These were easy to make and fantastic. Very rich so you can only eat 2 or 3 at a time.
brittenyjudah 2 years agoI make these every christmas, by adding vanilla extract and maple it will give it a nice flavor.
mom2bentayandkiya 2 years agoThese were great! Tip for a previous poster: freeze the peanut butter ball prior to dipping. That worked for me! :-)
