I know. There are already 4 recipes for buckeyes on TK. This one is different, I promise. It is more Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup because of the addition of honey and a pinch o’ salt. Everyone wants the recipe and there are NEVER any left.
1. In stand mixer, mix peanut butter, butter, honey, vanilla, and salt together until smooth.
2. Slowly add sugar 1/2 cup at a time until the dough comes together. Be patient. You might not need to use all of the sugar.
3. Roll dough into buckeye sized balls (a generous tablespoon) and place onto a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. Stick a toothpick into each ball and place in the freezer or fridge until cool to touch.
4. Melt chopped paraffin in a double boiler over medium heat. Add chocolate chips, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat.
5. Dip each ball into chocolate, trying to get the buckeye to look like a real one. Go ahead, Google it. My grandparents had a tree in their backyard. I used to make necklaces out of the real ones.
6. Anyway, after all of the balls have been dipped, remove the toothpicks and tap the holes closed with the blunt end of a chopstick or a skewer. Fingerprints on top of buckeyes are gross!
7. Place back into the fridge to set. I usually triple this recipe around the holidays and freeze until needed.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!

Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
