Maple candies with peanut butter? You bet and Maple Buckeyes are absolutely wonderful. Shhh – the chocolate brings it all together. A favorite candy in Ohio, the Buckeye State.
- 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
- Cook butter and maple syrup to 232 degrees. Just before removing from stove add peanut butter without stirring.
- 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.
- 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.
- Drain on wax paper. Later, depress the top of buckeye and cover the toothpick hole.
- Maple Buckeyes may be portioned into paper candy cups or stored in a cool place in a tin. They make wonderful gifts.
- Makes about 1 pound.
