Ingredients:  
1 (16 oz) jar creamy peanut butter
1 C butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 (16 oz) package powdered sugar
1 (12 oz) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 block of paraffin

Directions:
Beat peanut butter and butter at medium speed with electric mixer until blended. Gradually add powdered sugar beating until well blended. Shape into 1 inch balls and chill 10 minutes or until firm. Microwave chocolate morsels and paraffin in a glass bowl on high for 1 1/2 minutes or until melted. Stirring twice. Dip each peanut butter ball in melted chocolate mixture until partially coated and place on wax paper to harden. Store in airtight container.
It is easier to dip ball in chocolate if you use a toothpick and coat ball almost completely leaving a small place uncovered to look like a real buckeye.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Melanie (Rod & Terry’s daughter) is an Ohio State grad. Can’t have an OSU alum and not make Buckeye’s. Rodney, Megan and Alex (grandkids) love to help make these. I don’t end up with many as I should, though, as they are popping them into their mouths before they even hit the chocolate!
