    Can you tell me the best way to cut? I made some last year but couldn’t get them to cut very good….still were yummy.

    Oh my! I love buckeyes – especially being an Ohio girl – but I hate the dipping and rolling! Can’t wait to try this! Stopping by from the Kitchen Fun Hop.

    I am from Ohio and have made MANY Buckeyes. But you have to have an empty refrigerator to chill the balls on cookie sheets. This recipe sounds WAY easier, and I will do this next year for Christmas.

    Question: Can you be more specific about “chocolate candy coating?” Did you use chocolate chips or something else?

    Sweet! I love making Buckeyes, it’s something my mom taught me to make (she’s a native Ohioan…? lol I think that’s what you’d call her!)… I think this would be easier! Thanks for sharing and for linking up at the Weekend Wind-Down Party with us!!! God Bless!
