About a week ago on The Cottage Mama facebook page I had posed the question “What was everyone’s favorite holiday cookie?”. Well, my husband was the first to chime in and said “Buckeyes”!
And though I had not anticipated on him participating in our daily facebook chatter, I knew that I better get on top of making him his most favorite Christmas cookie!
My mother in law adds some paraffin wax to the chocolate mixture, this will thin it out and make it go farther. Personally, that’s just not for me, so I just use the vegetable oil for sort of the same thing. If you use paraffin, omit the vegetable oil.
I had some extra chocolate left over in my double boiler, so I dropped in a bunch of pretzels to coat them with chocolate as well. Before the pretzels set, I sprinkled them with fine red sugar and coarse white sugar.
