Chocolate Walnut Fudge

Chocolate Walnut Fudge

I wish you could all get a whiff of the Chocolate aroma in the kitchen today! Mom is making her area famous Buckeyes, Walnut Chocolate Fudge, and Holiday Chex Mix!Everyone that’s had the Buckeyes are of the same opinion, the best they’ve ever had! The thing that sets these apart from other Buckeye Candies is the Rice Krispies she adds. So if you’re looking for a Buckeye Candy Recipe, look no further. Same with the Walnut Fudge, such a creamy, deep and rich Chocolate taste! The bad part is neither is Diabetic Friendly, but I’ll still have a half a piece of each from time to time.

Buckeyes Candy

The Old Family Buckeye Recipe
It’s that time of year when the requests start coming in for my Mom’s Buckeyes. Back when I was working I was everyones favorite person when I would bring in a batch of my Mom’s Buckeyes. It’s been 14 years since I lost my leg to melanoma cancer and unable to work but to this day I still get request’s from fellow past workers for my Mom’s Buckeyes. It seems that everyone that has had them all say the same thing “The best Buckeyes I’ve ever had!” I think it’s the Rice Krispies that sets them apart from other Buckeye Candies. When you make a batch of these and try them I’m sure you’ll agree, let me know! These are not diabetes friendly but they are delicious. We tried making them by using reduced fat Peanut Butter and Sugar Free Chocolate but they just didn’t come out the same.
Buckeyes
Ingredients:

Recipe will make about 60 balls

1 – Stick Butter, Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter
1 – Box (1 LB) Confectioner Sugar
2 – Cups Jiff Smooth Peanut Butter
3 – Cups Rice Krispies
1 – 12 oz. Package Chocolate Chips
1 – Small Bar Hershey’s Milk Chocolate
1/2 Bar Paraffin Wax
Directions:

* In a large bowl mix Butter, Sugar, Peanut Butter, and Rice Krispies (With Hands)
* Chill the mixture for at least 2 hours.
* Then take the mixture and roll into individual balls. The size can vary no set size.
* Melt all the Chocolate and Paraffin Wax in a double broiler or in a sauce pan on low heat stirring until smooth.
* With one or two forks dip each of the balls into the Chocolate/Wax. Drain excess off the balls and place on a sheet pan covered with wax paper and refrigerate for several hours until Chocolate has hardened into a shell covering the balls.
* Now enjoy them!

  1. Thank you for sharing your Mom’s recipe. I’ve never tried Buckeyes before, or used wax for cooking. Sounds very interesting!

    This post would make a great submission to Our Growing Edge, which is a link up party for new food adventures. This month’s theme is “Nostalgia”. More info here: http://bunnyeatsdesign.com/our-growing-edge/
