I have attempted to make buckeyes like 4 times. This time they turned out awesome! Firstly, I upped the peanut butter to 2 cups. Kept butter the same and only used 4 cups of sugar. Perfect sweetness! HOWEVER, be sure and get it super cold before you roll the balls or else you will have a terribly hard time forming balls. The warmth of your hands will melt and you will want to pull your hair out! Ha. After rolling uniform balls they MUST put in the freezer for about an hour to set and get nice and hard. I put the toothpicks in before I set them in the freezer. Meanwhile get the chocolate melting in a double boiler. I used 1.5 bags of 12 ounce chips with a 1/2 4oz bar of shaved parafin wax. Melt well. Paraffin wax is GREAT! Take 5 balls out of the freezer at a time to dip in the melted mixture. You will get the hang of it after awhile. There is def an art to dipping! I hope this helps avoid the nightmares I have faced trying to make these things! And remember, patience is the key :)
