I've had a number of friends write me about my recipe for Buckeyes, I've also seen a few people attempt this project without consulting me first and I must say... My buckeyes look better than your buckeyes.
Here's the original post that I wrote in 2008, but people, nothing has changed. Start reading how to do it the RIGHT way, here. And to remind you a few items that you MUST have... a food processor (a 10 to 12 cup one), wax paper and you MUST use paraffin wax. Aside from those things, it's pretty easy.
My family has been making them this way for years and they are seriously flawless and beyond tasty. Aside from buckeyes, we make almond butter cookie press cookies, (my mom makes) homemade chex-mix and sometimes those walnut cookies with powdered sugar all over them.
What are you MUST bake/make sweets around this time of year?
