Recipe type: Snacks
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 pound
  • 1/4 Cup butter
  • 1/4 Cup peanut butter; chunky, all natural (without palm oil)
  • 1 pint maple syrup
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips
  • 1 slice cake paraffin
  1. Cook butter and maple syrup to 232 degrees. Just before removing from stove add peanut butter without stirring.
  2. When cool, beat with mixer until graining starts. Finish by hand--shape into balls the size of a buckeye. Dip balls into chocolate bits melted with paraffin and well mixed over hot water.
  3. Using a toothpick in the center of the ball, dip a little more than halfway into the chocolate to resemble a buckeye. Do not dip to cover the entire buckeye.
  4. Drain on wax paper. Later, depress the top of buckeye and cover the toothpick hole.
  5. Maple Buckeyes may be portioned into paper candy cups or stored in a cool place in a tin. They make wonderful gifts.
  6. Makes about 1 pound.
