This recipe originated from my sister who got it from her mother-in-law and has been perfected over the course of 40 years. The only adjustment that I have made is the use of melting chocolates because they are easy to use and more predictable (She uses chocolate chips and parafin)
Use only Jif peanut butter and stick margarine (butter will not work in this recipe) and be sure to melt the margarine for perfect buckeyes every time.
This recipe may be reduce in size. I use a professional 6 qt. KitchenAid mixer
Crush vanilla wafers in plastic bag.
Mix in Rum, Powdered Sugar and corn syrup until the vanilla wafers are moist
Stir in Chocolate chips and chopped pecans (to taste)
Put in refrigerator several hours or overnight to harden. Then roll into balls about the size of a melon ball and lay out on waxed paper. Sift Powdered sugar over top and roll balls around in excess sugar to fully coat.
This recipe came along with a pair of cookie cutters in the shape of angel's wings that you can hang on the rim of your coffee cup.
