    Every year I make those Buckeye candies for Christmas. The recipe always says to freeze the peanut butter for a couple of hours before you dip them in the chocolate. It never is enough. What is a good amount of time to freeze them so they can be easily dipped in the chocolate without falling apart?!!! Help!

    Buckeye what? :rotflmao:
    Kiddin..Krisy...send me the recipe..
    I may be able to help you knowing whats in there...

    Or just try this....

    Ingredients:

    * 2 cups creamy peanut butter, (not all-natural)
    * 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, softened
    * 3 3/4 cups (16-oz. box) powdered sugar
    * 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
    * 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening

    Directions:
    LINE baking sheets with wax paper.

    BEAT peanut butter and butter in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in powdered sugar until mixture holds together and is moistened. Shape into 1-inch balls; place on prepared baking sheets. Freeze for 1 hour.

    MELT morsels and shortening in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted.

    DIP peanut butter centers into melted chocolate using a toothpick, leaving a small portion of the center uncovered. Shake off excess chocolate and scrape bottom of candy on side of bowl. Return to baking sheets; refrigerate until chocolate is set. Store in covered container in refrigerator.

    Thanks P!! I will try your recipe. Those damn things are hard to dip in that chocolate and keep on the toothpick. They are so addictive though,and the kids love em.
