Buckeye Ball Recipe

1 stick butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter
1 lb confectioner's sugar

12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 block parafin wax

In mixer bowl blend butter and peanut butter until thoroughly mixed. With mixer on low speed add in sugar. Mixture will be lumpy. Add 1 TBLS water at a time to mixture, mixing well after each TBLS until it resembles play doh. Roll into 1 inch balls, place on waxpaper lined cookie sheet. Chill for about an hour.
Meanwhile in double boiler melt 12 oz chocolate chips and 1/4 block parafin wax. Blend well to mix wax completely with chocolate chips.
Using toothpick or dipping fork dip chilled peanutbutter balls to cover halfway. Place on cookie sheet. Chill until set.
These candies freeze well. *you can substitute 1 or 2 tbls crisco for parifin wax but your chocolate will be a little sticky*

Have I mentioned how Blessed I am??

I have 5 wonderful grandchildren ... I should thank my kids and their spouses for that.. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful family..
Recently my daughter Courtney and her family have been going through some things.. her youngest son was diagnoised with Scolosis.. he had RSV, Zeke has had the standard cold... through all of this her faith *and Spencer's* has remained so strong and steadfast.. I admire her that.. I wish I could be that strong.. in fact, I admire all of my kids.. each in their own way teach me something new every day...
Thank you kids.. I love you all..
