To make buckeyes, use a toothpick to pick up a peanut butter ball, dip only 3/4 in chocolate and place on parchment to harden. The peanut butter should be showing on the top.

At Easter you can press the peanut butter mix into an egg shaped candy mold and freeze. Pop them out and dip into chocolate. You have peanut butter eggs. Wrap in candy foil. Enjoy!!
