You can't live in Ohio and not have a recipe for these tasty treats.  A recipe makes 125-150 buckeyes, depending on the size.


Peanut Butter Balls:
1 lb. melted butter
2 lb. peanut butter
3 lb. powdered sugar

Mix above ingredients and roll into balls the size of buckeyes (about 1 Tbsp.).  
Refrigerate for about 2 hours.

Chocolate Coating:
24 oz. chocolate chips
1/3 bar paraffin

Mix chocolate chips and paraffin in a double boiler until melted.  Don't add too much paraffin or the chocolate will be too runny to coat the peanut butter balls.
Dip the refrigerated balls into the chocolate mixture with a toothpick.
Place on wax paper and refrigerate.
