Never buy meat that’s already been shaped into patties (unless it’s on sale). Instead, buy your own and shape it into patties yourself. Place a sheet of waxed paper between each, then place the entire stack in a resealable plastic bag in the freezer.

It’s that time of year when the requests start coming in for my Mom’s Buckeyes. Back when I was working I wasn’t one to switch jobs too often. A total of three full time jobs during that time. It’s been 9 years since I lost my leg to melanoma cancer and unable to work but to this day but 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. I’m sure you’ll agree, let me know! These are not diabetes friendly but 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.

 

 
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!

Lay a sheet of wax paper directly onto a custard or pudding while it is still hot to keep a skin from developing.

If you have a bunch of lemons that are about to go bad – you guessed it, freeze them! First cut in slices, then freeze on a baking sheet or in between pieces of wax paper. They’re perfect for adding to glasses of water.

This was a first never tried making these before, Chocolate Dipped Frozen Mini Bananas. Although I’m off my Diabetes Medication I still stay on the foods that I ate as if I still was on medication. So I’m always looking to make things that fit in that Diabetes friendly menu. They turned out fantastic! I used Mini Bananas, Hershy‘s Sugar Free Special Dark Chocolate, and Walnut Pieces.

I used some Corndog Sticks for the Bananas. I inserted the sicks into the Bananas and melted the Chocolate down by microwave, I think next time I’ll put the Chocolate into a sauce pan and melt it down on the stove. After the Chocolate had melted down I rolled the Bananas on the stick in the Cho0colate and then into a bowl that had the Walnut Pieces.

I put Wax Paper on a small Cookie Sheet Pan and laid the covered Bananas on the pan and into the freezer. I kept them in the freezer for about 3 hours and then sat them in the refrigerator until we had them. They were a bit to frozen to eat directly from the freezer. We had them as dessert after dinner later tonight. Makes a fantastic and different dessert that everyone enjoyed! Delicious and Diabetic friendly!
