from C.D. Hersh

A family friend provided us with this candy recipe and we have taken great pleasure in making and sharing it ever since. If you're an Ohioan then this chocolate delight is called BUCKEYES. Otherwise it is

2 cups peanut butter
1 lb. margarine at room temperature
2 tsp. vanilla
2½ to 3 lbs. powdered sugar
Popsicle sticks, optional

Mix peanut butter, margarine, and vanilla together.

Add powdered sugar. Mix well. Form into balls. Insert sticks if you chose to use them.

Chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.


6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate bits
3 tbsp. paraffin (grated)
Decorative candies/sprinkles, optional

Melt chocolate and paraffin in a double boiler. You may need more chocolate mixture to coat the balls than this recipe calls for.

Dip balls in chocolate and then candies/sprinkles. Place on waxed paper and allow to cool thoroughly.

Nibble on your new found treat while you take a peek at our paranormal series, The Turning Stone Chronicles.

Thrust back into the world of paranormal huntress, Deputy Coroner Katrina Romanovski must unravel a string of murders she believes are vampire attacks.
