(I posted this in error on the what's for supper post.  this one seems to be the more appropriate home)

Buckeyes

1 cups powdered sugar
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
cup margarine or butter
cup peanut butter
Milk chocolate melting wafers

Mix powdered sugar and cracker crumbs.
Heat margarine and peanut butter over low heat until melted; stir into crumb mixture.  Shape into 10-inch balls.  Refrigerate for about 15 minutes or longer.

Melt chocolate wafers.  Using a toothpick, dip balls into chocolate, covering about of the ball.  Refrigerate until firm.  Then hide very quickly, because they will disappear before your eys.

BOURBON BALLS   

I had these at a friend's a few years a go, and now I make every year.

1 pkg. vanilla wafers, crushed
1 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. crushed nuts
2 tbsp. cocoa
2 tbsp. light Karo syrup
1/4 c. Bourbon

Mix together, roll into balls and roll in powdered sugar.


YUM!  I dug some good Kentucky bourbon (Fighting Cock, what a name!, it was a gift) out of the cabinet and made these bourbon balls.  I improvised a teeny bit.  I had some molasses gingerbread cookies that didn't turn out quite right, so I crisped them up and use them instead of the vanilla wafers (checked on line to learn that a box of vanilla wafers is 12 oz.).  I also used cane syrup instead of karo syrup (my husband picked it up at a farm market).  I used pecans for the nuts.  At first they seemed kind of dry and grainy, so I added more bourbon  >:D.  Made little balls, rolled them in the sugar and today they are FABULOUS!

Thanks for sharing Randy!

I haven't quite gotten to the chocolate dipped Ritz or the Buckeyes yet, but I am planning on trying them soon.
