    Mine doesn't call for wax...although I do have that recipe.....I found this recipe and it is the best tasting Buckeyes (peanut butter balls) I have ever had.....Take care and God Bless....Lisa

    Buckeye's

    1-1/2 Cup Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter
    2-1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
    1/2 Cup Margarine (melted)
    1 tsp. Vanilla
    Melted semi-sweet chocolate chips for coating.

    1. Mix peanut butter, sugar, margarine and vanilla until semi-dry and crumbly.
    2. Shape into 1/2-inch balls. Dip balls into melted chocolate, leaving the top of the ball uncovered to resemble a buckeye.
    3. Place balls on wax paper lined baking pan and refrigerate until set.

    I do not use Paraffin wax anymore. I now use Chocolate Disks for my Buckeye (Peanutbutter)
    Balls and get Great reviews.

    Tip from the Buckeye State for making Great Buckeye balls (Peanut Butter Balls)


    Chill your dough AFTER you form it into balls.

    Instead of getting your fingers into the chocolate with a short little toothpick or dropping the dough into it with a slick spoon or your fingers, Just use a Shishkabob skewer.. Wooden or metal....... Your fingers are well away from the chocolate AND the well chilled dough does not drop into the dipping chocolate which may happen with a spoon or your fingers.I make these as a Holiday tradition for my family and friends.

    I had to buy wax to seal some wine bottles. I found that Hobby Lobby had food grade parafin in the candle making section.
